From Gucci Chanel to Rolex and Louis Vuitton, the world’s largest luxury brands gather at Galata Port. Istanbul’s magnificent ambitions do not end there, and the city surprises its inhabitants every day.
This project is located in the Beyoglu area and Karakoy neighborhood. Since this project will play an important role in the future of this city, let’s get to know more about it and get acquainted with its facilities.
Where is Galataport?
This neighborhood has been one of the most important parts of the Galata region since the 12th century, built by the people of Genoa. One of the most important features of the Karakoy region was the trade by ship with Europe, which was very prosperous at that time.
The massive Galataport Istanbul project will offer a new area to those looking to trade in a different location. The project is located on the European coastline, from the Karakoy pier to the Findikli Camp of the Turkish Sinan University of Architecture, which will give new life to this route by creating commercial, entertainment, and other centers. Karakoy is one of the oldest and most important neighborhoods in Istanbul that has been able to preserve its architecture and originality over time.
What we should expect?
The Galataport Istanbul project with its port terminal, hotel, restaurant chain, cafes, Duty-Free shops, stores of world brands, and office and commercial spaces, provides a well-known space for domestic, foreign tourists, and Istanbul residents. After the completion of this project, passenger ships with a capacity of more than 6,000 people can approach the port of Istanbul. More than 5 million passengers are expected to sail to Istanbul annually after the project is done.
The modern admission system as well as customs and document control will be very modern and will be settled with the latest technology equipment. The terminal for the Galataport Istanbul project is designed to accommodate the world’s largest cruise and cruise ships. Galataport will have 3 passenger ships at the same time after completing its capacity.
