The Modern East shopping centre opened its doors to the public on 19th of May 2016. Located in the Ümraniye district on the Asian side of Istanbul, the new centre, managed by ECE, currently consists of 60,000 m2 of GLA but this will rise to 90,000 m2 upon completion of the next phase.
Modern East is part of a larger mixed-use development promoted by Akasya, which covers 270,000 m2 and also includes two office towers - the tallest of which is 120 metres high - a 36 storey residential volume and 600 apartments set around a large landscaped plaza. The residential building has been completed recently and the office towers are now in an advanced stage of construction. L35 is responsible for the original design of the whole complex, while both construction documents and site supervision have been carried out by local teams.
