It can't be the Europe's largest Carrefour because with 11.470 m2 it will not overtake the one in Portet sur Garonne (near Toulouse in France), open in 1972 with a surface of 23.000 m2 whih is also the Europe's largest hypermarket !

11.000 m2 for a hypermarkert is big but not huge ! (In France, the average surface for a hypermarket is 6.000 m2 and a lot overtake the one in Istanbul)
