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.

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

outside kanyon mall

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

levent business district

asia on left, europe on right

looking west over the old city and sultana met in the distance

looking nw -- trump’s istanbul twin towers project on the left

looking west with the black sea in the distance

nw - up here the bosphorus meets the black sea

turk telecom arena, new home of galatasary SK


sw - the bosphorus and asian side

nw - big cemetery


bosphorus bridge on rt (1973)

fatih sultan mehmet bridge (1988)

*** i hope you liked the rainy day views - more istanbul neighborhoods to come! ***
