Levent, Karaköy, Nişantaşı …. it used to be that all of the insurance companies in İstanbul were in the same neighbourhood. But with the development of new office business districts companies are on the move.
Avoiding the nightmare of İstanbul’s rush hour traffic, with horrendous jams on each of the bridges than span the Bosphorus, a significant number have crossed to the Asian side of the city.
Some of these office blocks are small and purpose-built. Others are giant skyscrapers. With the wealth of new office construction that has taken place in recent years, Turkey now has the highest number of skyscrapers (office blocks over 70 metres tall) of any country in Europe, with 417 of them.
