Located in Levent, right next to the TAT twins (will be part of the Bosphorus Bridge skyline):

Ciftciler Zincirlikuyu Complex, Istanbul, Turkey



Start Date: 2005 | Completion Date: 2009

Towers linked via spectacular garden bridges

We are working on a high-end multi-use complex in the centre of Istanbul that will become a new icon for the city.

Working together with the international architect HoK, Arup is helping to develop the client's vision for a retail, residential and office development that is ‘alive’ with an open-aired area during the spring and summer seasons.

One of the most notable features is a pair of high-rise towers that will be linked via garden bridges, with spectacular views of Istanbul and the Bosphorus Strait.

Project details

Total area: 270,000 m2

Retail: 65,000 m2

Residential: 60,000 m2

Offices: 8,500 m2

Underground parking: 130,000 m2

The complex will be located in Istanbul’s new business center and will be linked to new transport infrastructure making it easily accessible.

A shuttle service for 3 different routes around Levent and Etiler, the most prestigious district nearby, will also be included.

We are the prime agent, responsible for all engineering design and project management on this unique site.

Groundwork is expected to start in December 2005.

Client

Ciftciler Ticaret ve Sanayi A S

Architect

HOK

Tunca Architecture Ltd

The geotechnical studies on the land of the plot for the construction of the skyscraper were carried back in 1999

Close to the TAT's? That's a nice spot in a very elevated position and the TAT's already stand out as seen from the Bosporous, so, an additional 52-storey NEXT to them is going to look great.

Can't wait for the renderings to see how it will fit in the area.... For sure, we look at something close to 200m. Looks like IsBank is not going to be the tallest for long...

Onur Taner (Ont),
O arazi bunun yaninda kaliyor. Bu levent tarafina dogru. :)



Long time no talk Gregory,
I hope it will pass 200 meters, if they can get the permission.
I am going to learn the details in Turkey. Ciftciler company is my friend's :drunk:

Add twin spires to the taller one, and you'll get a Sears Tower effect:

lol, I guess it's good enough to have 2 threads ;)
I like it, from this view the render looks compact, and yet you can distinguish it's two buildings.
Well I disagree with the spires, it wouldn't be beneficial IMO, although if I remember well Istanbul doesn't have many, so I guess it wouldn't be that much of a problem.
I do wonder how the towers will look from other angles, we need more renders to confirm it.
