Proposed


Tre Invest: 40 floors - Proposed






World Trade Center - 35 floors & 25 floors - Proposed

  • Everything began when former İzmir mayor sold municipality's land near the fair to Güçbirliği Holding, which wanted to build World Trade Center.
  • But beforehand, during Yüksel Çamur's mayorship, this area was determined to be a cultural center integrated with the international fair. A contest had been held and an architect won with his cultural center project.
  • When Burhan Ö. did such a thing he sued the decision together with whichever chamber you can think of including even the pharmateucians' chamber. The construction stopped.
  • Then Konak municipality and Ahmet Priştina changed the plans in order to make the projects available to be built, Güçbirliği revised the project accordingly. However Çakmur and his friends sued that revision too.
  • In the meantime, the court rejected Çakmur's 1st case. But the construction has already been stopped a second time for the 2nd trial. One of the partners, EGS Holding has gone bankrupt. The second court has also rejected Çakmur's case.
  • We thought the construction would start again, the state (TMSF) being the partner but Çakmur has taken the case to a superior court.
  • The investors even agreed to build a 25m 8-storey complex but the case is still in the court and the construction is on hold.
  • One of Izmir's most valuable lands is idle and 24 million dollar investment has gone.

Article about Folkart Narlıdere project

Unique residences in İzmir's Narlıdere project

Turkish company Folkart Yapı is undertaking the construction of the Folkart Narlıdere project, which sits on a 40,000-square-meter area in İzmir's Narlıdere district. The project, which encompasses normal and duplex houses with 3+1, 4+1, 5+1 and 6+1 plans in sizes ranging from 180 square meters to 480 square meters, is comprised of a total of 168 residences. The prices of the hoses in the project begin at YTL 1 million and reach YTL 2 million, depending on a home's size and location. Those who would like to purchase houses from the project are able to use credit facilities from Garanti Bank, Akbank, Finansbank and Denizbank, while Folkart Yapı plans to deliver the residences to their owners by December 2008.

The housing complex has one closed and one open swimming pool, one children's pool, and one entertainment pool. Folkart Narlıdere provides a wide range of social facilities to its residents, including open and closed swimming pools, a sauna, a gym, a children's playground, a billiard saloon, table tennis courts and multi-purpose rooms. In addition, the floor that contains the social facilities also encompasses a cinema room, providing residents with the opportunity to watch movies and sports matches.

General manager of Folkart Yapı, Mesut Sancak, said the company has sold half the residences in the project. “We have launched a unique project in İzmir,” Sancak said, emphasizing that Folkart Yapı provides immense opportunities for those both inside and outside the residences. “We have built diverse social amenities and living spaces within the project. Meanwhile, a family that resides in a 250-square-meter house and benefits from all the facilities of the housing complex will pay a subscription of YTL 500,” he added.

Turkey's biggest outlet center to be opened in İzmir

İzmir readies to host a big shopping center in the coming years.

Rönesans Malls have invested $500 million dollars in İzmir and the company's mission is to invest $1 billion by 2012 and employ 10,000 people, the chairman of the company said at a press conference introducing a new outlet mall.

Erman Ilıcak introduced his Optimum Shopping Center project at a press conference held recently in the Swiss Hotel Grand Efes with Vice Chairman Kamil Yanıkömeroğlu, board member Murat Özgümüş, Alkaş Counsultancy Chairman Avi Alkaş and Gaziemir Mayor Adnan Yüksel.

Saying that the building process on the new mall will start in August and that the shopping center will be opened in October 2009, Ilıcak noted that the company has taken special care in the architecture of the building, considering the climate of İzmir, and that it has selected a Los Angeles-based firm to do the project due to similar weather conditions. Ilıcak said this was the company's "best project ever" and that the architecture of the center, which has indoor and outdoor areas, will be copied to be used in many buildings of Turkey.

Saying that the building will employ 2,500 people during construction and 2,500 after completion, Ilıcak said the company is planning to increase their $500 million investment to $1 billion by 2012 and that it is planning to open two new centers in Balçova and Karşıyaka in İzmir Province. Ilıcak said the company is planning to employ 10,000 people in 2012.

Yanıkömeroğlu said the terrain in Gaziemir was perfect for the project. "We are implementing a project that is easy to access and suits the people of İzmir." Saying the company has a total of 10 finished and ongoing projects in Turkey, Yanıköeroğlu said his mission was to build 25 centers by 2012.

Avi Alkaş said the projects will continue until there is "one Optimum to each city" and said Optimum centers were the most established chain stores in the newly developing outlet system.

Alkan emphasized that the shopping centers contribute greatly to registered employment and that considering ideal shopping center rates of one center for 1,000 people, Turkey and especially İzmir could bear more investments.

Saying that he was happy to have a project implemented in the province, Gaziemir Mayor Yüksel said at the introduction meeting that he believes "Gaziemir, İzmir and Turkey will succeed."

The mall, which is reported to be the biggest outlet in Turkey, will have a hypermarket, DIY store, entertainment center, movie complex, ice rink, electronics store and 57,000 square meters of rentable spaces. The mall will cost $200 million.
