Evacuation and demolition processes of the existing structures belonging to the beneficiaries in the area for approximately one thousand residences to be built in the third and fourth stages of the Örnekköy Urban Transformation Project have been completed. President Tunç Soyer said, “We will continue to work with all our strength to make İzmir safe and to ensure that our citizens are in a healthier environment with green areas and social reinforcement areas.”
Izmir Metropolitan Municipality, which continues its urban transformation works without interruption with the principles of 100 percent consensus, on-site transformation and "Metropolitan assurance and guarantee", accelerated the construction works for the second phase, which includes 170 residences and 20 workplaces in the Ornekköy urban transformation area. Evacuation and demolition processes of the existing structures belonging to the beneficiaries in the area for approximately one thousand residences to be built by İZBETON, a subsidiary of the Metropolitan Municipality, in the third and fourth stages in Örnekköy have been completed, and the phase of obtaining the license has been started.
68 thousand square meters of green space
İzmir Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Tunç Soyer stated that the tender preparations for the other phases of the project are continuing, “When the project, which continues in stages in the 6-hectare Ornekköy Urban Transformation Area, where approximately 18 thousand people live, is completed, a total of 3 residences and 520 workplaces will be built. Within the scope of the project, a new two-storey market area with a closed area of 338 square meters, approximately 4 thousand square meters of open and closed parking areas for vehicles, a sports facility building with a closed area of 200 square meters and social areas will be built. At the same time, with the project, 30 thousand square meters of green space and 3 thousand square meters of social reinforcement area will be added to the area. Because we aim both to ensure that citizens living in risky houses live in healthy buildings and to create livable urban areas. We continued to work uninterruptedly under pandemic conditions in order to make İzmir safe and to ensure that our citizens are in a healthier environment with green areas and social facilities.”
Emphasizing that they are continuing their urban transformation works in six different regions, Mayor Soyer said, “We have taken a decision for İzmir Metropolitan Municipality companies to participate in the tenders in order to accelerate the urban transformation works. With the involvement of İZBETON, a subsidiary of the Metropolitan Municipality, in the process, we overcame the congestion in the market by accelerating the slowing down process in urban transformation projects. Thus, we were able to start the construction of a total of 200 independent units consisting of residences and workplaces in the second, third and fourth stages in Örnekköy.”
