Wow, it's attack of the clones in Istanbul...

The towers look really great, but they are a complete copy of Turning Torso.

There seem to be a lot of twisty towers at the moment - but they're no more a cliche than the black glass box was for the last 50 years. These ones are especially elegant, it doesn't really matter that they're not very original.

the bid for the area will be end of the year
some people protested that Sama Dubai could buy the area without any bid

So Sama Dubai, some people from Ankara, Trump and maybe another one will bid for the area

But the major of Istanbul wants Sama Dubai

i think the project is dead (Sama Dubai completely removed this project from its web site )
thanks to Istanbul Architecture chamber
media
leftists

no bid no tower
and the ATO Ankara guy is quiet like the construction of the Imar Plaza

so we will never see this in Levent

That's unfortunate. The Dubai Towers would have helped Levent have a truly iconic skyline.

What a shame. First the Dubai Tower Doha was put on hold, then the Dubai Towers Casablanca were cancelled, now the ones in Istanbul and we haven't heard anything about the proposal for a Dubai Tower in the Melbourne Docklands for a long time either

i don't know why the other projects stopped etc
But i can say that for the Istanbul project Sama Dubai done everything.
But there were too many anti people

President of the Istanbul Architecture Chamber:"It is impossible to built such twisting towers. There isn't a same project in the whole World"

So maybe the municipality of Istanbul has rejected the bid for the area, that doesn't mean they cancelled the Dubai Towers. It still may begin soon, YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE A SOURCE SERCAN!

i have experience

why should they rejected the bid?
everybody was waiting for it
and Sama Dubai has never spoken about this projects for about 1 year

IMO nothing will happend
ATO guy cannot buy this area

they reached what they want
The Arabs should not built the highest Tower in Turkey
Paranoid people

They're all idiots, but it's just your opinion that it's been cancelled, there is nothing certain but you're coming here and say ''Guys this project is dead'' without any source.

It's has not been cancelled Sercan
