Kartal's urbanization project presented in NYC

Arif Dağlar, the mayor of İstanbul's rapidly developing district of Kartal, has given a presentation to a number of mayors and city planners from around the world regarding an urban transformation project under way in his district, at UN headquarters in New York.

At the Forum on Sustainable Urbanization in the Information Age, organized by UN-Habitat and UNDESA-ECOSOC on April 23-24, Dağlar said the urbanization efforts in his district are aimed at establishing an environment that will offer the best quality of life to locals. "Both the goal of sustainable development and sustainable urbanization is this," he said, adding that they had focused on how to create a space where people can live in harmony with their environment and have easy access to public transportation. The Kartal urbanization project presents a new city plan based on geometric shapes with a wide network of rail and land transportation.

I'm divided about this project... on one hand I really like Zaha Hadid's work and it's a shame that she rarely gets anything commissioned. On the other hand, I just look at this project and ask myself 'why?' People are too easily seduced by pretty architecture, but it doesn't make sense to spend billions of dollars for such a large scale project that seems to focus largely on aesthetics.

I can confirm that the "Kartal District Development" is not a mere concept but rather an authorised and well financed project which is also well under way. The plans for the individual buildings which will make up this very urban environment are in fact being drafted as I speak.

It is also envisaged that the area covering the Kartal Masterplan will be gradually expanded in order to encompass a majority of Anatolian Istanbul. (But this expansion will be done gradually over a period of 20 to 30 years). Once, this is complete Anatolian Istanbul will exceed European Istanbul in terms of appearence and functionality.

This project will be a world first in many respects:

(1) It will be the world's first fully "green city" (Green power, extensive recycling, Natural ventilation through the extensive use of man-made lakes and ponds, Supported by UN-Habitat and UNDESA-ECOSOC).
(2) It will be the world's first futuristic city.
(3) It will be the world's first glass city (as all the buildings will have glass facades).

It is also very certain that Kartal will be Europe's most advanced and Modern urban environment in 2012.

ISTANBUL WILL ONCE AGAIN RECEIVE THE ATTENTION IT ONCE RECEIVED

I saw a photo of this project in the last New York Times Magazine. The article is about the 'city of the future' or some such type thing. Pretty cool.

For those of you who would like to capitalise from this project, studio residences are now on sale off the plan.

Dumankaya Visyon A.S. has commenced off the plan sales of Residences. For further information please see:
http://www.dumankaya.com/english/pro...?SectionId=706
http://www.dumankaya.com/english/cor...uiry-Form.aspx

Apartments of this calibre on the European side of Istanbul have sold for in excess of £50 million. Once the Kartal Urban project is completed expect the residential prices in Anatolian Europe to be in this vicinity.
