Bilgili Holding’s principal objective is to bring value to Turkey by investing in its real estate and tourism sectors. Having begun our real estate sector investments through the Akaretler Row Houses Project in Istanbul, our company develops environmentally conscious projects that improve city life by restoring buildings with first-degree historical monument status.
Bilgili Holding’s projects include BodrumBodrum—a collection of luxury villas on the Aegean coast—One Ortaköy—defined by its unique design—and West Blocks in Bayrampasa, currently one of the most rapidly developing regions of Istanbul.
Bilgili Holding completes important projects in the tourism and real estate sectors, routinely contributes to national tourism and has developed exclusive venues that enrich the social lives of the people of Istanbul. Completed tourism investments include the W Istanbul Hotel in Akaretler and the Radisson BLU Conference & Airport Hotel Istanbul. Bilgili Holding also completed the Republika Academic Aparts, among the first new-generation living space projects specifically designated for university students. In addition, the Palazzo Corpi building at the former U.S. Embassy in Beyoglu became the new site of Soho House, a private members’ club for artists, designers and intellectuals across Europe and North America.
As part of its collaboration with Doğuş Holding, Bilgili Holding—already adding value to Istanbul and Turkey with its cooperative projects—will introduce the first city park in Istanbul. The park is designed to spark new energy around the natural environment, cultural life and art of the city, and will achieve this by hosting concerts and outdoor events. The completion of the Galataport Project (also known as the Salipazari Harbor Reach), which spans approximately 1,200 meters of the coastline from Karakoy to Tophane, will promote tourism as well, lifting Istanbul into the privileged circle of the world’s finest metropolises.
