ISTANBUL | Atasehir Financial Center

Ataşehir Financial Center
Istanbul, Turkey

Final Proposal

Quote:
$2.6bn International Finance Center for the world's second most populous city

http://www.worldarchitecturenews.com...22237&q=turkey

The London and New York offices of HOK have released renderings of a 4.2million sq m mixed-use facility for the Turkish Government. The New Istanbul International Finance Center (IFFC) is under construction on a 70-hectare site on the city’s Asian side. Once complete the complex will encompass residential, retail, office, conference, hotel, and park space in a highly sustainable masterplan drawn up by HOK who have also designed two of the site’s office towers. The masterplan is split into four individual sections: culture; commerce; civic; and governance.

HOK President Bill Hellmuth, AIA, commented: “We are honored to have the opportunity to plan a world-class financial center in Istanbul - a city that historically has been such a dynamic global center for commerce. Our masterplan provides a framework for developing a sustainable financial center in a way that blends human need, environmental stewardship and economic viability into a new global model of urbanism rooted in Turkish culture.”

As part of their bid for the 2020 Olympic Games, Istanbul undertook a series of economic analyses which confirmed a rise of more than 8% in Turkey’s economy in 2011. Following the release of these figures, the Turkiye Milli Olimpiyat Komitesi said: “[This data] proves what we have been saying quietly and confidently for several years now: that Turkey is building a strong, stable and sustainable new economic model.” With the second largest population in the world behind Shanghai and a burgeoning economy, the argument for the city to receive an International Finance Center of this nature is strong.

Costing $2.6bn (€2bn), the project will incorporate a number of infrastructure improvements including a new subway line with associated station and infrastructure for sustainable power, water, data and security. All of these systems will be integrated into a podium which will provide the surface for a new urban park. Due to complete in 2016, work on the scheme has already begun onsite with excavation well underway.

Arup provided a variety of engineering, sustainability, information technology, communications and security design services during the masterplanning phase.

Varyap Meridian

Varyap Meridian
Istanbul, Turkey

HEIGHT: -
FLOORS: 31 floors
COMPLETION: 2011
ARCHITECT: RMJM

http://www.varyapmeridian.com/

RMJM designs first ‘green’ development in Turkey’s financial district

RMJM has today unveiled details of the US $1 billion development it is designing in Istanbul’s new residential and business district, which will be one of the ‘greenest’ projects in Turkey.

The luxury 372,000 sq m development – being designed by RMJM’s New York and Istanbul studios - will be located in the Atasehir district of Istanbul which the Turkish government intends to transform into the country’s new financial district and business centre.

Set on a highly visible site (totalling 107,000 sq m) that features panoramic views stretching from the Bosphorus Strait in the west to the Princes’ Islands and the Sea of Marmara to the south, the development has been commissioned by Turkish real estate development company VARYAP, part of Varlibas Group International. It includes a 60-storey tower, 1,500 residential units, a five-star hotel, offices and conference facilities with landscaped public areas and parking facilities. The project, which is expected to serve 20,000 people, is scheduled to be completed in 2011.

The RMJM design team intends to create an iconic complex that is designed to achieve the ‘LEED’ sustainability accreditation from the U.S. Green Building Council and, as such, would be the first mixed use development of its kind in Turkey. To achieve this the designers analysed the local site conditions and embraced the topography, climate and surrounding context to maximise the site’s natural potential and inform building orientation and landscaping. This also ensured panoramic views beyond the site, while minimising solar heat gain to the building facades.

Active ‘green’ design features include rainwater collection sites and facilities to optimise water usage and reduce energy consumption, wind turbine technology, cooling water pools that enhance the external landscape and a co-generation plant that will produce electricity for the development. The unique context and culture of Istanbul is incorporated into the design including a spectral tiled facade, ranging from terracotta to blue to white.

“We’re thrilled to have this opportunity to create a landmark community in Istanbul’s up-and-coming financial district,” said Chris Jones, RMJM Design Principal who leads RMJM’s new Istanbul office. “RMJM’s design not only addresses Istanbul’s culture, climate, architectural heritage and cosmopolitan attitude but also sets a new standard for sustainable design for Turkey. Sustainable design is no longer a trend but a necessity and our client VARYAP embraced the idea from the start.”

Varyap Business

Built as an extension to Varyap Meridian project at the new finance district of Istanbul West Ataşehir, Meridian for Business attracts great attention from local and foreign investors. Since last May when it was first introduced to the market, 25 % of meridian for Business is sold, where the office prices vary from 376 to 698 thousand Turkish liras.

Standing out with its premises featuring international standards, Meridian for Business offers office units varying from 45 to 1000 square meters. While it will be possible to obtain larger spaces by removing partition walls between offices, all premises will be delivered with complete technical infrastructure.
