Nice tower. The curved glass section at the bottom makes the tower look so much more interesting. I'll be looking forward to seeing this tower completed.
I like the idea of gardens in the sky.
The garden bit though could act like a giant greenhouse if it's not properly ventilated.

Also clearly shows the construction site of Sapphire on the left. It's breaking into the skyline already!

Excellent updates, but still perhaps progress is a little slow?

2 floors in around 1 1/2 months isnt really that much!

These are the first skyscrapers above 200 meters (Sapphire, Diamond of Istanbul, etc.) built entirely and alone by Turkish construction companies with no foreign participation.
They have lacked structural experience for such tall towers thus far and are gaining it now as they build. Besides, the task is additionally complicated by the complex architectural nature of both projects, especially the Diamond of Istanbul.
For Sapphire, the most complex task is the first 10 floors where the curved wings adjoin the core tower from both sides; after that the pace of construction should pick up.
Besides, Sapphire is the first building in Turkey with the double-facade all along its 233-meters height. (Gardens all along when completed).
You don't want to rush when you build something as complex.

new towers for Levent
from left to right
Özdilek (height unclear, but it is said that it will be higher than the MetroCity towers and Canyon..so 140-150m)

Apa GIZ, 25 storey high office tower by GIZ group (GIZ group = boxy, ugly towers)

Landmarkk Tower by Norman Foster

Zorlu Residence (40-44 fl)


Soyak (165m office, but project can be changed to a mixed uses -> maybe higher)

DTI

Sapphire


Red one:
Sabanci Center 3. Hope Sabanci group will reactivate this project (220m)
