ISTANBUL | Project by Broadway Malyan | 571m | 1873ft | Pro

World's Second Tallest Building, Turkey

Broadway Malyan opens 15th global office to deliver world's second tallest tower

Global architecture, urbanism and design practice Broadway Malyan has opened an office in Istanbul, Turkey, as part of its continued international growth strategy, meaning the practice now boasts a global network of 15 bases, stretching from São Paulo to Shanghai.

The new office will be led by Director Peter Vaughan, who will spearhead the practice’s strategic push into Turkey, on the back of recent project wins in the country, including the world’s second tallest tower which will stand at 571m (see left), as well as other major mixed use schemes, including a 525,000 sq m project in Seyrantepe, 250,000 sq m scheme in Beylikduzu, and 100,000 sq m project in Florya.

Managing Director Gary Whittle said: “The new office will further enhance our global reach and result in a network of 15 bases from São Paulo to Shanghai, distinguished by an unrivalled diversity with 500+ sector experts, distinctive client focus and commitment to a return on design. It is also evidence of our successful international growth strategy, with the practice boasting a strong project pipeline, and actively targeting emerging countries and new markets to continue to grow the business.”

The new office, the third opened by the practice this year, will provide the business with an additional platform to export its world-class skills, expertise and experience, in the planning, design and delivery of high-quality, inspirational and future-proofed cities, places and buildings of all types, from concept to physical operation. It is also evidence of the practice’s continued commitment to long-term client partnering, with over 80% of income from repeat business, its instinctive entrepreneurial approach, original collaborative working ethos and unique cultural connections, and investment for future joint success.

The practice’s live project portfolio includes high-profile schemes including ‘The Tower’, London’s tallest residential-only tower, which will stand at just over 180m and has started to rise out of the ground on the banks of the River Thames in London’s Vauxhall district. The practice has also just delivered the concept masterplan for the ‘10×10’ project in Iraq, involving a 17 sq km extension of Sadr City, Baghdad, and the creation of New Sadr City, with the scheme named after its predicted $10bn dollar value and ten-year delivery timeframe.

If it finishes before Shanghai Tower, it can get third tallest. More likely though is that it will finish in 2016 or something and be 6th tallest.

I'm really liking the style though. Makes me think of the wizard's magical tower in Arabian Nights.

if this building would finish end of the Year XXXX it would be the nth tallest:

2012: 3rd, behind Burj Khalifa and the Mecca Tower
2013: 3rd, 1WTC is shorter
2014: 4th, Shanghai Tower topping out
2015: 5th, Pingan topping out, maybe even 6th if goldin finance topped out

Honestly though, what's the likelyhood of a giant like this finishing in 2 years?

Istambul will get 571 meters high skyscraper. Good job Turkey. I hope, you will start to build it as soon as possible.

Wow, an European building reaching over 500 meters, I find it hard to believe. How come Istanbul dare to reveal projects like, shouldn’t they be suffering from the Euro crisis like everyone else in Europe?

Actually, Istanbul lies partly in Asia so this tower may end up not being classified as European.

I'm fairly certain Seoul is not part of Europe.

No, I was referencing the second tallest tower part from the title of the article.

Ah. Well it all really depends on when everything is done, and since we don't even have a projection of time on this project, I'm amazed that they try to claim it will be the second tallest tower. Especially since Abraj Al Bait is already topped out.

Lol, no. It's the only transcontinental metropolis in the world - not too hard to remember.

Serhat, can you tell which side of the Bosphorus the tower is based on the drawing above?
