Akmerkez the most award winning shopping center in Istanbul.
In 1995, the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) selected Akmerkez as the Best Shopping Center in Europe. In 1996, Akmerkez was given the recognition as the Best Shopping Center in the World by ICSC and also received the highest accolade, Design and Development Award.
Akmerkez, with its 246 shops, provides outstanding women’s, men’s and children’s clothing and textiles, stationery, toys, sports, shoes, eyewear and gift shops along with restaurants, cinemas, hairdressers, banks, a currency exchange office, electronic goods, orthopedic goods, shoe shine services, a tailor, a pet shop, and a supermarket for all the shoppers needs.
Turkey’s leading retail center, Akmerkez, recently announced a 25 million dollar refurbishment plan to maintain their No.1 status. The new design will include a comprehensive renovation of the exterior architecture, interior design, lighting, signage, and an expansive, new style restaurant and food zone. The entire center will be upgraded to achieve a new sense of luxury and lifestyle shopping, with special attention to pampering shoppers with special services and facilities.
In the most modern way, the design is inspired by the Bosphorus (Istanbul’s famous water passage connecting Europe to Asia). The new center is conceived with luminous soft, curving forms and spaces. It is elegant and timeless, with changing personalities from day to night.
Akmerkez is open every day of the week between 10:00-22:00 and is visited by 1-1.5 million people every month.
