Russian oligarch and Chelsea Football Club owner Roman Abramovich will be able to build his Upper East Side triple-townhouse mega mansion after all.

The city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission approved the billionaire’s plan to combined 11, 13 and 15 East 75th Street into a single lordly, five-story, 18,000-square-foot residence, 6sqft reported.

Abramovich — one of Russia’s richest and best-connected businessmen, worth $8 billion according to Forbes — bought the three townhouses in three separate deals worth a combined $78 million, starting on October 2014.

He filed a permit application with the Department of Buildings in November of last year to combine the properties, only to have it rejected in March.

The revised proposal approved by Landmarks, which has the final say on the matter, calls for a garden replacing the building’s rear yards, as well as a single glass facade to unite the three properties. [6sqft]Ariel Stulberg
