Firm invests $150 million in residence project in central Istanbul
Esin Yapı, a leading local construction company focusing on residential projects, has introduced a $150 million urban project named “Istanbloom” in central Istanbul.
The project, which the contractors call a “green harmony,” will stand on 14,760 square meters. Nearly 5,600 square meters of that is allocated for green recreation areas, said Fikret Orman, one of the three shareholders of Esin Yapı, at a press meeting Wednesday.
The crystalline-looking building, in Zincirlikuyu in Istanbul’s financial area, will have nearly 46 floors and several special apartments on the corners.
“I wanted to design a building that is transparent, nature-friendly and even has gardens on some floors,” said Bünyamin Derman, head architect of the project.
Derman is also the architect of Dalaman Airport in the southwestern province of Muğla.
The building will be designed according to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED, standards, Derman said. “We aim to receive the LEED award certificate soon.”
“The building has a strong insulation system, which reduces noise and all the effects of weather conditions, and there is almost no need for artificial lighting during the daytime. You can also drink the tap water with no hesitation.”
