An opportunity for GCC nationals to invest directly in Turkey, The Address Residences Emaar Square, Istanbul is a premium component of Emaar Turkey’s second masterplanned development in the country, located in Çamlıca, spanning 66,000 square metres.
Defining a new benchmark in the serviced residences sector of Turkey, The Address Residences Emaar Square, Istanbul will be managed by The Address Hotels + Resorts, the flagship hotel group owned and operated by Emaar. The exclusive serviced residence development will feature only 73 homes. Customers can choose from 1 to 3-bedroom apartments, ranging from 83 to 187 sq m in area, and 4-bedroom penthouses of up to 374 sq m.
Emaar Square will comprise, in all, over 1,000 luxury homes; The Address Hotel – a 180 room five star premium property; and a shopping mall, envisaged as one of the largest in Turkey. The mall will feature a family entertainment centre, ice skating rink and megaplex. The development also includes 40,000 square metres of office space, accommodating around 4,000 professionals. The Address Residences Emaar Square, Istanbul is conveniently located in walking distance from the vibrant heart of Emaar Square, in close proximity to all these diverse components.
Mohamed Alabbar, Chairman of Emaar Properties, said: ‘Emaar Square in Turkey is one of our prestigious developments that brings a new dimension to modern lifestyles in the country. Having established our credentials in world-class project development and delivery with our flagship Tuscan Valley Houses, Emaar Square highlights our approach to create thriving integrated communities.’
‘The Address Residences Emaar Square, Istanbul marks the launch of our first serviced residences in Turkey. With tourism, investment and business links between the GCC and Turkey gaining momentum, and plans ongoing to double trade between these two compelling economic blocs, our luxury residences will serve as ideal second homes for visitors from the region.’
With increasing demand for Emaar’s projects in Dubai from the GCC, regional investors can now leverage the opportunity to be part of the world-class lifestyle offered by the company by investing directly in Emaar Turkey’s newest project.
Residents at The Address Residences Emaar Square, Istanbul can enjoy a wide array of amenities including concierge and reception services, an advanced fitness centre and spa pool, cafes, and underground parking and storage.

Upholding the design and finishing standards that are associated with Emaar’s projects, the project is scheduled for completion in 2015.
Built in one of the prime areas in the centre of the city and located on the main arteries and link roads, very close to Bağdat Avenue, the Bosphorus and the bridges, Emaar Square is only 4 kilometres from Bağdat Avenue, 5.5 kilometres from Kadıköy, 7 kilometres from the Bosphorus Bridge, 11 kilometres from Taksim, 25 kilometres from Sabiha Gökçen Airport and 900 metres from the nearest metro station.
