ISTANBUL | Soyak Plaza | 165m | 37 fl | Com

Soyak Plaza
Istanbul, Turkey


HEIGHT: 160 m
FLOORS: 35 floors
COMPLETION: 2012
ARCHITECT: Pei Cobb Freed & Partners

Preparation work is underway for a new project to be located in the Turkish city of Istanbul. The project is being built to be the new headquarters for the Soyak Corporation and will be named the Soyak Plaza with its main centre-piece, a 160 metre tower.

The tower is the work of New York based architects Pei Cobb Freed and Partners. When viewed from the front rises from a square shaped base with an off set podium section, and as it rises it tapers inwards into an almost pyramid like shape before tapering backwards to its peak with asymmetric, sheer facades.

The facades will be fully glazed in two toned glazing which runs in horizontal bands around the tower. The eight storey podium section is partially sunk underground with the above surface portion glazed the same as the tower, this will feature open courtyards. In contrast the top of the tower will feature a 28 metre tall enclosed roof garden which will offer a relaxing place to hang out and give great views of the city below.

With recent seismic events in mind the company insisted the tower be capable of being operational after a major event, the design team employed a technique known as Performance Based Design to enable the tower to withstand a major quake, take an amount of damage in limited, defined zones but still allow for continued occupancy after the event with minimal fuss.

This technique is commonly used on regular buildings but applying the principles to a building with the geometric complexities involved in this tower is somewhat unusual.

The tower will house premium office space along with internal courtyards and winter gardens, the below ground portion will house parking spaces.

Work on the tower is expected to be completed by 2012.

The project has changed a little bit, especially in terms of the height!

Following this news the construction of Soyak Plaza has already started:

Quote:
Büyükdere'de yarışa Soyak da girdi



BÜLENT AYTAC YOLDAŞ 01.03.2011

İstanbul'un prestijli otel ve AVM'leri ile en pahalı ofis kulelerine ev sahipliği yapan Levent'te son olarak Soyak Holding şirketi Koru Gayrimenkul, 35 katlı 160 metrelik ofis kulesi inşaatına başladı

İstanbul'un merkezi iş alanlarının başında yer alan Levent'te yılbaşından bu yana yeniden başlayan proje yarışına Soyak Holding de katıldı. 2005 yılında aldığı Tekfen Kule ile İETT arazisi arasında kalan Büyükdere Caddesi No 215'teki arsayı nasıl değerlendireceği merak edilen Soyak, sonunda kendi projesini yapmaya karar verdi. Soyak Holding şirketlerinden Koru Gayrimenkul, Şişli Belediyesi'nden Nisan 2009'da aldığı ruhsatla kısa süre önce inşaata başladı. Müteahhitliğini de Koru Gayrimenkul'un yaptığı ofis kulesinin uygulama projesinde Türkiye'den Has Mimarlık ve ABD'den Pei CoopFreed & Partners'ın imzası bulunuyor. Soyak Ofis projesinin 160 metre ve 35 kat olarak inşa edilmesinin planlandığı öğrenildi. Yaklaşık 150 milyon dolara mal olması beklenen projenin 2012'de tamamlanması öngörülüyor. Soyak Holding Kurumsal İletişim Koordinatörü Fatma Çelenk, sorularımıza sınırlı cevaplar vererek, Koru Gayrimenkul'ün bir Soyak Holding şirketi olduğu, yapılacak projenin ofis olacağı ve projenin mimarının ABD'li bir şirket olduğunu söylemekle yetindi.

17 MİLYON $'A ALMIŞTI
Soyak 2005'te Novartis'ten 17 milyon dolara aldığı arsaya önce dünya literatürüne geçecek bir proje yapacağını duyurmuş, sonrasında projeden vazgeçerek arsayı Garanti Yatırım aracılığıyla açık artırmayla satışa sunmuştu. Ocak 2008'de Soyak, 150 milyon muhemmen bedelle satışa sunduğu arsaya Zorlu Gayrimenkul'den gelen 135 milyon dolarlık teklifi beğenmeyerek arsanın satışından vazgeçmişti


1 MİLYAR DOLARLIK PROJE SÜRÜYOR
Levent'te yılbaşından itibaren başlayan projelerin toplam yatırım değeri 1 milyar doları geçti. Soyak'ın eski Novartis arsasında inşaatına başladığı proje dışında Eria Partners- Pramerica eski Renault Mais arazisine 480 milyon dolarlık yatırımla Skymark İstanbul, Özdilek eski Roche arazisi üzerine yaklaşık 200 milyon dolarlık yatırımla otel, ofis ve AVM ve Zorlu Gayrimenkul eski Deva İlaç arazisi üzerine 280 milyon dolarlık yatırımla Zorlu Ofis projelerine devam ediyor.
