Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality brought the floating platform of Karaköy pier, which will serve millions of passengers in sea transportation, to Haliç Shipyard to make its interior equipment.
Kadıköy and Karaköy Pier, where Üsküdar expeditions took place, lay on its side in November 2008 due to the violent lodos. While the floating pier, which has been serving for 25 years, became unavailable in the lodosta, a temporary floating pontoon was placed in place to provide sea transportation.
The floating pier, which was reconstructed instead of the sinking pier, was completed in Tuzla and brought to the Haliç shipyard at midnight. After the fine productions of the pier are completed in the Haliç shipyard, it will be put into service. The new pier will have a cafeteria, library, and large lounges.
The new Karaköy pier will be used by people to exchange books, read books and architectural masterpieces, the historical peninsula and the Bosphorus sea. The 80 m360 enclosed space and 151 m2 covered terrace will be available for the book cafe.

Dimensions of the new pier building: 69.00mt x 15.60mt
Indoor area: 54.00mt x 15.60mt

There is an 2 generator available when power failure occurs.
The book at the end of the pier will have the opportunity to exhibit temporarily at the art bridge that reaches the cafe.
