At the juncture of Europe and Asia, a new lifestyle destination has been created in the heart of Istanbul. Zorlu Center is Turkey's first five-function mixed-use project, featuring a performing arts center, shopping mall, hotel (Raffles Istanbul Zorlu Center), office space and residences. The Performing Arts Center, which was designed as a multi-purpose culture and arts center able to host events encompassing the full spectrum of the performing arts, is a key element in the Zorlu Center . At the heart of the project is a 10,000 square meter urban square designed to serve as a new meeting point for the city. For the hospitality component of Zorlu Center, Zorlu Property selected the Raffles "premium luxury" hotel brand.With approximately 180 stores, a 10,000 square meter main square, adjoined by a 12,000 square meter park and side square, the Zorlu Center Shopping Mall is a new urban destination, the centerpieces of which are its inviting squares and green spaces offering a combination of alfresco and enclosed areas. Overlooking historic Istanbul, the Princes' Islands and the Bosphorus Bridge, select families will have the opportunity to enjoy the exclusive privileges of residences starting from 117 square meters to as large as 735 square meters, with a selection of layouts ranging from single bedrooms to palatial five-and-a-half room units with expansive living rooms.
