The vast scheme set along the Marmara Sea with a new community built along the Istanbul Kazlicesme coastal road promises to become a highly sought after new residential quarter.
The masterplan concept aims to build in community, soul and the kind of urban complexity that is famously exemplified by the richly textured city of Istanbul. Layering a broad range of uses and facilities, with 1,500 homes,15,000 sq.m of restaurants, shops and leisure space and 20,000 sq.m of offices, there is a clear division between public and private space, a juxtaposition of soft and hard city spaces, creating streets, squares, alley ways, gardens and courtyards framed by contrasting contemporary and traditional architecture.
The luxury development is described as 'Four Quarters, One Neighbourhood' as there are four main gates leading into the scheme with separate entrances and exits yet all access to one communal area, creating a brand new community site along the seafront. The four quarters are: Garden community, Home office, Luxury quarter, Hotel and Branded Apartments.
It is designed to be an exciting and sustainable place to live for families, single people and young couples who wish to enjoy all the benefits of living in one of the world’s most exhilarating cities. People moving to Kazlicesme will also to have access to the new Zeytinburnu metro line, Kazlicesme Sahil Waterfront Park and a stunning new marina directly accessible from the development.
