Topbaş explained the new state of Haydarpaşa

Haydarpaşa Station, Port and Backyard Conservation Development Plan was approved in the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality Council. In the zoning plan, the historical station was reserved as a 'cultural facility tourism and accommodation area'. Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Kadir Topbaş said, “Haydarpasa has lost some of its station function after Marmaray. Haydarpaşa train station, in part, maybe we will be able to use it to give an opportunity to stay ”.

Yesterday, the details of the plan waiting to be suspended took place in Radikal Newspaper. The historical station building, which has been discussed for many years as “will it be a hotel or not,” has been allocated as “Cultural Facility, Tourism Accommodation” area according to the plan.

When a project in accordance with the plan is prepared, from the Harem Bus Terminal in 'Haydarpaşa Port' of 1 million square meters. Kadıköy The part up to Moda will become a giant tourism and trade center. In addition to a new cruise port, a total of 4 religious facilities will be built in the area. The freedom to construct 941 thousand square meters of the 817 thousand square meter area.

No skyscraper

8 years ago, Haydarpaşa'a 7 skyscraper will be made with the rumors, but the time has come under various changes in the 'Haydarpaşa Port' project was completed. According to the latest changes in the project, the ground floor of the existing railway station will continue to provide railway transportation services. However, the upper floors will serve as offices, museums, concerts, exhibitions and cultural facilities and accommodation.

In the project 'accommodation' he said the places 'hotels' was claimed. 4 pieces of religious facilities will be held in various parts of the area. The total area of ​​these facilities is about 15 thousand square meters. The total area of ​​the administrative divisions is limited to 7 thousand square meters. For the culture, tourism and accommodation, the 30 area of ​​one thousand square meters is reserved, while the 5 area for the 132 pieces is projected as 1000 square meters. 145 will serve as a tourism and trade center if the 3 is another thousand square meters.

Excavations allowed

Cultural and Natural Heritage, Conservation Board, Üsküdar and Kadıköy decided to be made in two parts. One end of the project starts from Harem Bus Station, the other end Kadıköystretches to Moda coast.

Height limit of the gar

In the plan approved by the Conservation Board, floor heights 4 floor. Previously this height, 5 floor and maximum 27 meters were specified. The new buildings will not be higher than the Haydarpasa Train Station. The ratio of commercial center areas in cultural facility areas will be limited as 20. This area, which is shown as 'passenger port' in the plan, will be completely closed to the public when it becomes a cruise port where international touristic trips are made.

'A plan against the principles of protection'

The United Transport Association has appealed to the Protection Board regarding the Haydarpaşa Port. The reasons for the appeal are as follows:

Its function is clearly incompatible with the principles of urbanism, national and universal protection law, incompatible with its natural and historical values.

Considering the commercial approach instead of the conservative approach, it is seen that the emphasis of tourism, accommodation and trade has been emphasized, and the end of the peer construction rate is left open in some parcels.

Neither the TCDD nor the IMM which prepared the plan has a record of the existing and lost works for this region. Reconstruction takes place as a restoration method. This method, however, can only be caused by a sudden disaster such as war, earthquake, and structures that are indispensable for social memory and which are a part of national identity. Like the Mostar Bridge.

Haydarpasa Port is converted to cruise port. In this context, the construction of a ship and the port of the port of Selimiye Barracks and Marmara University will prevent the appearance of the skyline.

The 60 of the area is reserved for accommodation and this area is converted into a hotel area.

Haydarpaşa Gar Building is based on the sea by staking tree stakes. It is of great value in terms of construction technology used in its construction. The high decibel and sound vibrations in the concerts around this building will cause destruction in the building.

It was anniversary

At 26 November 2010, Haydarpaşa Train Station received one of the most severe damage in its history. The roof of the grove was completely burned during restoration.

The full name, 'Haydarpaşa Gar, Port and Back Field Conservation Development Plan', was approved by IMM Assembly in 25 November 2011, one day before the anniversary of this fire. The plan has not yet been suspended. After the signature of Mayor Topbas, the plan will hang on the 30 days. Then projects will be prepared. During this time, the objection to the plan can be made. The Union of Unions of Transporters and the Chamber of Architects are already in the process of preparing for a suspension.

Topbas: Maybe we can evaluate the accommodation
Istanbul Metropolitan Mayor Kadir Topbaş answered the questions of journalists about the new version of Haydarpaşa today.

To the question of what to do instead of Haydarpaşa Train Station, Topbaş said, “A study was initiated for the rehabilitation of high-speed trains and lines. This, of course, affects the existing suburban lines and Haydarpaşa loses some of its station function after Marmaray. Now trains will pass uninterruptedly using the existing Marmaray. So there will be no need for a station. People will be able to get on and off from any station they want. ”

Topbaş said, “Master plan studies were carried out about the environment of the important building, which we accepted as an important work for Istanbul. These studies passed through our city council. 1/5000 zoning plan for protection was prepared. We will be able to evaluate the function, artistic and cultural activities given here in Haydarpaşa, in part, in order to give a chance to stay. If the objections do not change and do not change, it is also open to objections, you know that these plans will take their function according to the plan layout given accordingly. "An assessment was made to meet the cultural and artistic activities center and accommodation needs."
