Maçka Residences Partners with Armani/Casa
Posted by Kayley Hall — October 29, 2010
Maçka Residences has invested around US $ 300 million dollars for one of the most exclusive residential schemes in the world: three towers with a total area of 7,300 square metres in Maçka, a district in the heart of Istanbul, with a privileged location including breathtaking views of the Bosphorus, the Princes’ Islands and Seraglio Point.
Maçka Residences blends beautifully into the architecture and skyline of the Maçka district, an area where a number of renowned architects have left their mark over the years. The project acquired an international dimension thanks to the partnership with Armani/Casa, who will be handling the design and realization of the lobbies, public areas and several apartments in the three towers. Moreover, clients can involve a team of Armani/Casa architects and interior designers to develop a bespoke project for their own apartment.
Vedat Aşçı, Chairman of the Board of Astaş Real Estate, highlighted the importance of the Turkish real estate sector and declared: “We decided to invite leading international brands to join us in creating the most beautiful building designs worldwide and, as with other investments, we leveraged off our global relations and experience. Maçka Residences is the third largest investment of our Group in Istanbul, following the Kempinski Residences Astoria and Bellevue Residences by Kempinski projects. Thanks to this new scheme, which we have scheduled for completion in early 2012, we have directly created 2,000 new jobs and we will generate work for a further 10,000 people in related businesses.”
A century ago Maçka was considered a residential quarter for the elite. Now it throbs with life thanks to new restaurants, cafés, bars, boutiques and art galleries. Maçka Residences reflect and respect the soul of the area, and are emblematic of its identity.
The residences target a selective and demanding niche clientele, so the intention is to emerge as one of the most prestigious residential projects in the world, underpinned by excellent service and quality design. With the ample size of the apartments, numerous value-added services and impeccable location, Maçka Residences will offer not only an exclusive lifestyle experience, with stunning views offered to purchasers of these properties, but also convenience for shopping, restaurants, entertainment and business life offered by the city.
Maçka Residences will also have two outdoor and one indoor swimming pools, a spa, gym and beauty salons, as well as other dedicated areas.
