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.

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

Aya Vukla Church - U/R

İZMİR - One of the historical values of İzmir, Aya Vukla Church will be rescued in a project conducted by the İzmir High Technology Institute, Faculty of Architecture and Restoration.

Constructed as a orthodox church in the 1860s, Aya Vukla Church was later reopened by Atatürk as the first museum of İzmir under the name "Asar-i Antika Müzesi." The museum was home to many representations of various of Aegean civilizations, history and republic reforms. However, these works disappeared in one way or another. The museum was later used as the workshop of İzmir State Opera and Ballet. After a serious fire, the workshop had to be relocated and the museum lost many original pieces to thieves.

Aya Vukla, whose roof has been seriously damaged, is waiting to be saved for years. The İzmir Municipality has already begun salvage work on Aya Vukla, which is expected to cost 1.5 million Turkish lira.
