I am not talking about where is it situated. What I'm saying is it's not a white European county where people drink wine and eat cheese. I normally identify the country based on it's tradition, culture, language, religion, history, governmental system etc.

Who cares about how you identify one country. You should probably tell us what do you appreciate about one skyline instead.
Meanwhile I can't stop staring at Mercury City Tower up in the fog on that picture above. Architectural masterpiece.

Yes the main question is does it belong in the European skyline thread?

European and Turkish culture are very linked indeed, you have the best turkish baths in Budapest thanks to the ottoman empire, the balkans are what they are because of the ottoman presence in Europe and Anatolia is mostly attached to the European history, starting from greeks. So, in my point of view, I can consider Turkey as part of Europe and I don't think that White skin, Wine and Cheese are preminent caracheristics of european countries.

People what's wrong with you? I haven't seen it in person, but as far as I know the skyline is situated on the European site so what's the problem? What about the cheese? What about the wine? I suggest you to find some culinary forum and leave your opinion over there, I am sure that someone will appreciate it, but not in here.

The current skyscraper boom was a lil bit too much and too fast.

More and more people prefer a more controlled grow.
Currently it is impossible to built a 300m toer in Levent or Sisli/Bomonti.

The chamber of architects does not want a dominante skyscraper skyline seen from the Bosphorus.
If the project is close to the Bosphorus. the height is ~ max. 150-160m.



But thats Istanbul. Nobody knows what will happen in 10 years.

IMO someday they will start to develop the area next to Levent
Its a huge area and has got a huge potential to be a new great CBD

Where does Istanbul get the money to build so many skyscrapers? Or is it because they are so inexpensive to build due to low labour cost?

As doguorsi said before, there aren't any solid plans in Istanbul, and the same goes for the height restrictions. The chamber of architects are against almost everything in Istanbul and they are by theory right because the infrastructure can barely handle the current situation, and because there are no plans the problem never gets solved so they ignore it and continue to build.

But the reason for the current height restrictions is the outrage after newspapers in Turkey started to report that "the silhouette of Istanbul is being ruined" . This unfortunately also affected the skyscrapers in the cluster although the skyscrapers in question were built far away from the clusters on a random location...and I also agree that they are too high and too close to the historic peninsula.

There are 2 on-going projects I think can be considered both high and classy Skyland Istanbul and Istanbul Tower in or near the main cluster Levent.

As far as SSC is concern, Turkey is an European nation! End of the argument! Now back on topic please!

They both look interesting, they can make an impression of a massive skyline. Creating a massive skyline is necessary in my opinion, because it will fit with the image of Istanbul very well. If you can pull even more towers like that in the future it will be a great continuation of what you already have.
