A magical meeting place of East and West, Istanbul is Turkey’s economic, cultural and historic capital and the country’s most populous city. Due to its unique strategic location, straddling the Bosphorus Strait, which separates Europe and Asia and marking the final stage on the legendary Silk Road, it boasts a colourful history, with the Greeks, Romans and Venetians all ruling Istanbul before the Ottomans finally staked their claim on the city. This rich heritage, dating back more than 2,500 years, is evident today, with visitors from all over the world flocking to view its historical and cultural attractions.
Istanbul’s Old City reflects the cultural influences of the many empires that once ruled; the Sultanahmet district is home to the open-air Roman-era Hippodrome and Egyptian obelisks while the iconic Byzantine Hagia Sophia features a soaring 6th-century dome and rare Christian mosaics. But it’s the magnificently-decorated imperial mosques, built by the Ottomans, that form one of the world's great skylines and in recent years, local businesses have paid tribute to the empire’s grand building ambitions by financing an impressive array of galleries, museums and festivals for everyone to enjoy. Istanbul’s famous Golden Horn separates the historic centre from the rest of the city and forms a natural, sheltered harbour that protected maritime trade ships for thousands of years. Today, it remains one of the world’s most popular and most-visited waterways.
While Istanbul continues to pay tribute to a bygone era, it is also one of the fastest-growing metropolitan economies in the world and is undergoing rapid expansion and modernisation. Centuries-old mosques and churches happily co-exist with modern restaurants, galleries, bars and nightclubs. The city hosts the headquarters of many Turkish companies, accounts for more than a quarter of the country’s GDP and in 2015, was named the world’s fifth most popular tourist destination. Urban attractions aside, it’s a sport- and nature-lover’s paradise and offers amazing sandy beaches.
As the city evolves at a fast pace, suburban areas are being rejuvenated and modernised, including the immensely-popular Güneşli district where Centro WestSide is located. Positioned on the Basin Express Road, it is an investment focus for developers of commercial and residential real estate, malls and supporting infrastructure, from parks to public transport.
