To the south of the Bosphorus strait, Istanbul Seaport is an ambitious mixed-use project (61.4 hectares) overlooking the Sea of Marmara, on the European side of the ancient capital of Turkey. It was designed at the foot of the Theodosian Walls, west of the historical and cultural center of Istanbul. Istanbul Seaport is part of a complex Zeytinburnu Urban Regeneration Project, a pilot project that aims to regenerate the housing areas in Zeytinburnu, to improve their physical, social and environmental quality and strengthen the building stock for the expected earthquake. The area has significant redevelopment and regeneration potentials. It is located near to the historical centre area, has high rate of accessibility in terms of motorways and public transport with existing railway, tram and port. The coast line is very appropriate for recreative activities and tourism. There are good quality green spaces because the area is adjacent to the protection area around the historical city walls. Industry in the area is already considered to be transformed to trade and services in the metropolitan plans and decentralised industry will leave vacant buildings and spaces suitable for redevelopment and regeneration.

Abstract

To the south of the Bosphorus strait, Istanbul Seaport is an ambitious mixed-use project (61.4 hectares) overlooking the Sea of Marmara, on the European side of the ancient capital of Turkey. It was designed at the foot of the Theodosian Walls, west of the historical and cultural center of Istanbul. Istanbul Seaport is part of a complex Zeytinburnu Urban Regeneration Project, a pilot project that aims to regenerate the housing areas in Zeytinburnu, to improve their physical, social and environmental quality and strengthen the building stock for the expected earthquake. The area has significant redevelopment and regeneration potentials. It is located near to the historical centre area, has high rate of accessibility in terms of motorways and public transport with existing railway, tram and port. The coast line is very appropriate for recreative activities and tourism. There are good quality green spaces because the area is adjacent to the protection area around the historical city walls. Industry in the area is already considered to be transformed to trade and services in the metropolitan plans and decentralised industry will leave vacant buildings and spaces suitable for redevelopment and regeneration.
