yeah
the skyscrapers between 1990-2001 were high (for a european city: 100-180m) and Istanbul had built many skyscrapers

But IMO a new epoche started in Istanbul
thw quality is very good of the new ones
Dubai Towers
Diamond Of IStanbul
Kanyon
Ciftciler
IMO also Mecidiyeköy
Garden Life Plaza
Bijoux Plaza
Selenium Panorama

It's a really nice design. The shape resembles The Gherkin (just the shape). It looks like the best in Istanbul so far.

I still think the gherkin's a bit better, but i guess you never know how this building would turn out in real life, and it is indeed pretty sexy.

Anyway, does anybody know who the architect is???

Sercan, he means London Gherkhin; Swiss Re.

I think, this tower's design is better than Swiss Re. Looks so classy.
