Urla to have its Silicon Valley

İzmir's Urla district is about to become a leading spot for Turkey's technological developments, as a French firm, CICOM, which supports technology zones in different countries, signs a contract with the Institute of High Technology to make 4 billion worth investment

French firm CICOM, which has helped found 18 technology development around the world, will give its support to the Urla Technology Development Zone, giving it the potential to be one of the leading technology zones in the world.

In cooperation with the İzmir Institute of Higher Technology, or IYTE, the Aegean Young Businessmen's Association and the Aegean Region Chamber of Commerce, the French firm recently signed a contract for the investment.

According to the agreement, 25 percent of the company will be owned by the İzmir Technology Zone Management, formed by Turkish companies, and 75 percent will be owned by CICOM. After the completion of the zone, around $15 billion in investment is expected from companies.

A member of the İzmir Technology Zone Management Board and the rector of IYTE, professor Zafer İlken said the project would turn Urla into a center for cutting-edge technology, with over 250,000 employees.

“They will organize the region to provide services for small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) with limited research and development possibilities.”

Noting that in 2002 an area of 856 hectares surrounding the university premises in Urla was allocated for the zone, İlken noted: “University buildings will be used as the R&D centers until the infrastructure work of the region has been completed. Vestel and the other 62 firms work for the project with their 300 employees. Once the new building has been established, the number of the firms in the region will reach 80.

“We planned to found an information-park on the area allocated by Cabinet in collaboration with the İzmir Metropolitan Municipality. However, we expanded the project with the proposal of French firm.”

Saying they visited “Sophia Antipolis,” İlken said: “Having six golf courses, hotels, sport facilities and closed areas, Sophia Antipolis is a place where 35,000 people live and work. We will build a more developed technology zone based on this French model. We'll build underground car parks too. There are both 500-square-meter residences and 50-square-meter studio flats in techno-city.

"Today, even mechanics build R&D centers for their work. Big firms have already solved R&D problems. So, we will rent the offices with a suitable price, attracting universities and SMEs to the region," he added.

Marina to be built:

Emphasizing the importance of historical and natural sites located in the technology zone, he said: “There is a Roman bath at the mouth of the sea and the brook which flows across the region. Thermal water springs from there and it is an advantage. French firm plans to restore this bath.

“They are also charmed by the location of our premises, situated near the sea. They intend to found a marina for surfing and other marine sports, but these mean a long bureaucratic process for us.”

Metro-line will be extended to the zone:

“The zone, located on the İzmir-Çeşme highway, is also advantageous for transportation. The metro-line will be extended to the zone. Ferries will bring people to the region and the construction of an airport in Alaçatı will be completed,” İlken said.

CICOM Director Alain Andre also said they were very pleased to sign the contract: “Since 2003, we have been working on the issue. We will announce the establishment of Tekbokent in Urla at the conference on world technology zones to be held in Cape Town next week. Urla teknopark will be the only technopark where private organizations and universities meet. We are working in 27 countries in the entire world. We will bring our experience here to Urla.”

latest news about that

İzmir residents have their say about Kemeraltı

The top eight prize-winning pieces from the Kemeraltı Urban Furniture Design Competition have gone display at the Çetin Emeç Art Gallery.

Visitors to the exhibition, organized by the İzmir Metropolitan Municipality, will be able to share their ideas and suggestions in a poll that will be considered in the final selection process.

The eight pieces were selected by the jury during the competition, which was organized by the municipality to bring back the lively days of the historic Kemeraltı bazaar. The pieces are now on display in the Çetin Emeç Art Gallery. Izmir Metropolitan Municipality General Secretary Ersu Hızır and head of the Historic Kemeraltı Guild, Mehmet Gülaylar, and other Kemeraltı merchants attended the opening of the exhibit.

Eight of the 44 pieces that were entered in the contest were awarded prizes and are being displayed at the Çetin Emeç Art Gallery in Hisarönü, stated Ersu Hızır. Hızır said projects associated with the contest will bring color and an artistic touch to the streets of the Kemeraltı Bazaar, Izmir's traditional shopping center. "The Izmir Metropolitan Municipality wants to bring the city alive along with its inhabitants. Therefore we present these projects to merchants, especially the merchants who can take advantage of them. Our merchants can comment on the projects through a survey. Every project features a unique aspect that is related to a different subject. At the closing of the exhibit, the evaluations will be applied by the municipality if they are accepted by the Commission for the Protection of Cultural and Natural Heritage," he said.

Visitors to the exhibit are able to give their views and have an impact on the final decisions.

Multiple projects can be carried out simultaneously thanks to the wide area of the bazaar, so improvements to Kemeraltı's façade, in combination with better integration into the surrounding area, will give the bazaar a much more lively appearance.

This is very impressive, would this make the largest R&D center and technology center in the world?

Havagazı Arts and Culture Center - Completed

Old gas turned into new art

İZMİR - A facility established in İzmir in 1862, once a natural gas processing plant, has been turned into an arts and culture center. İzmir Greater Municipality official Fazıl Ölçer said the old gas plant, located in the Alsancak district, was closed in 1994. "After that, the factory served as a bus depot, then in 2006 a project to turn the factory into an arts and culture center began."

The arts and culture center covers an area of 23,250 square meters and cost YTL 5 million to construct. The center opens Nov. 29.

Open-air cinemas

Ölçer said eight out of the 14 factory buildings had been restored and would serve as a cafŽ, an atelier, reading rooms, a gift store, a dining hall, an exhibition hall and an administrative department. Ölçer said they had also established an entertainment hall where various artistic events would be held. There are also five small pools in the area.

The center has an open-air cinema where people can watch movies and sit on the grass. "The culture centerwill be a living area," Ölçer concluded
