Like la Defense, right?

It is the same concept of La Defense (creating a city on its own), but more alienating and sad. Nevertheless, it is right next to the historical centre of town

This pic is a bit old so 5 towers are missing, but it's an unusual angle so I decided to share it anyway.

clearly one of the best views on istanbul posted here

PS: no bashing. What always disturb me on Istanbul skyline pictures is the big amount of twin towers or complexes wit several same looking towers. Not really my taste. I think they work als solo complexes very vell but in a skyline I dislike it.

No, you are totally right. I think it got to do with that the land was relatively cheap and the demand for office space was very high, so they built twins. They still build some twins but not as much as before and they are usually two-egg twins and not one-egg twins now

I'm glad you guys liked it, but as I said the pic is a bit old. I'm pretty sure all these will be at least T/O by 2015, Istanbloom and one of the Özdilek towers are T/O already.

Rotterdam

This amazing Photo was taken 2 years ago. Would be interesting to see a Photo from the same spot now 'De Rotterdam' and '100 Hoog' are under construction.

Thanks, that you don't took it as an offence. Usually I am bashed as troll or hater if I dare to write what I dislike. If twin towers play the mai role
to skyline they mostly work out very well imo like old WTC or in Dnepropetrov. But if not, well how to say, I am not a big fan of the deutsche bank towers or societe generale in connection with their skylines

Lol, why shoudl we bash you

The majority of the turkish users don't also like twins

As Erhan said, in the past land and 2x 30floors were cheaper than 1x 60 floor.
And of course its hard to get a permission.

Another reason are the plots in Levent. They are very long.
