We were very excited to take part in the May 23 soft opening of The Mall of Istanbul, a dynamic, 3.8 million-square-foot project designed by DDG. The Mall’s Grand Opening will take place on June 7.
DDG was awarded the design contract for the Mall of Istanbul in 2009 after winning an international design competition. The 34.5-acre/13.9-hectare development in Istanbul, Turkey features 2.1-million-square-feet of retail, 1.4-million-square-feet of residential, 322,600 square feet of office, and a 15-screen cinema – all focused around a dynamic, central entertainment component. Four adjacent residential towers stand atop landscaped podiums, which connect to the green roof of the mall proper via a series of pedestrian skybridges.
We are extremely honored to play the key creative role in making The Mall of Istanbul a reality. The development aspires to become the place to shop, live, work, stay, and be entertained not only for Istanbul, Turkey, but for all of Europe to enjoy and celebrate the unique heritage of this world-class city.
