Büyükyali residential-led scheme development approaching completion in Istanbul

The much-anticipated Büyükyalı mixed-use project is nearing completion in Istanbul.

A 340,000m2 residential-led scheme in a spectacular location on the coastline of the Marmara Sea, Büyükyalı will be an attractive and sustainable place to live for families, single people and young couples who wish to enjoy the benefits of the city.

A key element of the concept was to create a sense of community by introducing an active streetscape hosting a well-considered mix of street-front retail, F&B and leisure facilities, as well as a dynamic variety of landscaped spaces.

The resulting development therefore has an attractive townscape character, enhanced by the careful renovation of the heritage industrial and office buildings on the site, which front onto new plazas, streets and gardens. The sense of place is strongly emphasised by the development’s shoreline location and the dramatic view it provides of the many passing ships.

Büyükyalı makes a clear division between public and private space – layering a broad range of uses and facilities, including 1,500 homes with prime sea views and 15,000m² of public space incorporating fashion, culture, art, music, kids’ clubs, a hotel, restaurants and a new marina.

Chapman Taylor is the Principal Design Architect for the project on behalf of the developers, Ozak-Yenigun-Ziylan partnership.
