Cool Bilkent - Ankara - **Real Life Simcity**





Bilkent Disrict which is 20 minutes away from Ankara City Centre which collects all needs of city life into one district, or should we say to a small city of its own.

History of Bilkent starts with the establishment of Turkey's first private institution for higher education, Bilkent University. Today Bilkent University is regarded as one of the world's leading academic institutions considering the quality of its education, scientific research and publishing, its diverse cultural and arts activities.

It is just 20 minutes to reach Kızılay, Tandoğan or whatever central district you want.

I am living in 3rd expand of the district (Bilkent-3), there are residentals of EMA behind our site under construction.

And good news, TEPE Cons. Company (who built the whole Bilkent) was started Bilkent 4 and Bilkent 5 which will consist of only villas.

There are buses from Kızılay (Güvenpark) at every 15 min to Bilkent Center. It takes 30-35 min with bus, because it also visits Atatürk Hospital and TSK Rehabilitation Centers just outside the Bilkent. It doesn't enter campus.

There are dolmuş's (minibuses) from Sıhhiye (passes through AŞTİ) at every 20 min, it also visits hospital but it enters campus later on.

^Good news again. Subway connection is coming! They have nearly comleted the structral construction.

+

This pic is just the begining of the previous. (You can still see the Atatürk Hospital) Well Just near the Prime Ministry Twin Towers, and the bridge near it, there will be subway station entries. The shot was taken just before the construction of metro started, you may notice the cleaned area near the bridge.

There will be still buses which will be responsible for the connection between Bilkent residentals and the subway station.

In city literature this area which Atatürk Hospital is located is called as Lodumlu. But it might be seemed as a part of Bilkent.

And I found some projects about this area again...

These project will be built in the area which last aerial shots show.





Construction Area: 607.000 m2

2.000 apartment residentals, 653 villas, 6.000 m2 artificial lake, Shopping Center with cinema, sport center feat. swimming pool, tenis, golf, fitness centers...
