Zorlu Center is a 5-function “multiple use” project and includes a center for performance arts, a hotel, offices, a shopping center and residences. Center for Performance Arts, one of the most important functions of Zorlu Center, was developed on the fact that a significant need of Istanbul was spaces for culture-art events. Zorlu Center Performing Arts Center designed as a multi-functional art center to host various branches of art covers a significant space in Zorlu Center.
Zorlu Center is Turkey’s first and only “mixed use” project with 5 functions and realized by the Joint Initiative Group of Tabanlıoğlu Mimarlık – Emre Arolat Mimarlık Ltd. Şti. The project extends over a construction area of 619.595 m² including culture and art center, hotel, business center, shopping center and residences.
With Zorlu Center, Zorlu Gayrimenkul aims to present “a new city square” to İstanbul. Zorlu Center has been created based on the squares from the past to present including those which are the symbol of Istanbul and those which are famous in various cities of the world. The Center is shaped by the modern understanding of architecture and acts as a bridge at the point where the continents of Asia and Europe join.
The culture and art center of Zorlu Center is a giant master piece, being constructed over an area of about 30 thousand sqm and with a capacity of 3500 people. There are also a 5-star international hotel to add prestige and tourism value to Istanbul and a shopping center including world famous brands either already existing in the Turkish market or those that are newcomers.
Tower Residence apartments and Garden Residence apartments with own garden with a beautiful view offer the privilege of both being at the heart of the city and feeling as if the city is far away. The offices that are planned as integrated parts of the overall project are positioned horizontally on a single floor rather than gathering in a tall tower.
Zorlu Center is located in the most beautiful spot of the Bosphorus and is a candidate for being an international center of attraction with both its position and its green recreational areas and gardens of 80 thousand sqm.
Zorlu Center project had been entitled to the Master Planning award, a jury special award in the 2008 Cityscape Dubai Architectural Awards competition.
