The article focuses around the recent scheduling of construction set to begin on the tallest tower in Istanbul – billed as Europe’s tallest tower and highlights the scope of Istanbul’s ambitions to become a commercial capital in the world, linking the East with the West.
The building has been designed to capture public imagination and symbolises the ambition of Turkish real estate – the scale of the project is so vast, it is clearly intended to impress.
The article mentions a recent feasibility study by Deloitte Consulting for the Banks Association of Turkey that concluded that Istanbul would join London, New York, Shanghai, and Tokyo as one of the top five leading global financial centres by 2035.
