Istanbul has such a broad appeal due to its distinctive blend of influences from both Asia and Europe – the city has been associated with major events in political, religious and art history for more than 2,000 years.
The Boğaziçi, or Bosphorus, connects the Black Sea to the Sea of Marmara and is a natural divide between the continents of Europe and Asia, which gives Istanbul its unique setting and singular character.
With a site that covers half a million square metres, the Levent Hills project spans the Kağithane and Şişli districts, which are part of a huge area of regeneration. The site has a rich history, comprising multiple characteristics that will create the perfect opportunity to build distinctive ‘clusters’ within this significant mixed-use development.
DAMAC Properties brings its long-established reputation for creating iconic buildings and master developments to Istanbul and Levent Hills with a collection of luxury residences, complemented by world-class shopping, dining and entertainment.
Turkish food is varied and flavourful due to the European and Asian influences but the country is possibly most famous for its traditional Turkish coffee – so much so that it’s on UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage List. The first ‘coffee shop’ in Istanbul was established in 1555.
Istanbul is most certainly a city of contrasts, with a colourful history and a skyline built up over many centuries. Levent Hills brings the future to this part of the world, with luxurious accommodation and world-class amenities.
