istanbul: the modern business districts, kanyon mall, sapphire tower, etc.

if you want it -- here is that unavoidable song (extended version)

to start, here in the nw is maslak, sort of a secondary business district going up west of ataturk oto sanyi.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maslak

maslak competes with levent, the main business district to the west.
it may at some point have the diamond of istanbul project complex,
which would surpass levent’s sapphire tower nearby as the tallest in europe.
however, it seems that project is currently on hold:

next up is the main modern business sector at levent and levent4,
starting with the groovy kanyon mall complex

last is the 55 story sapphire tower, the tallest in europe
