Allianz Tower, Istanbul
Record: 185.50 m
The Renaissance Tower is a Class A high-rise office building in Turkey. The 186-meter-tall Renaissance Tower is located on the Asian side of Istanbul, at the intersection of two major highways where the two continents connect.
It is the first high-rise project undertaken by Rönesans Gayrimenkul Yatırım (hereinafter referred to as “RGY”) in Turkey. The facility is situated in the Ataşehir area, a new financial center with all the necessary infrastructure, as well as residential, retail and other facilities. The Renaissance Tower benefits from a very central location in this new financial area and will significantly change its outlines. With its unique asymmetric form, resembling a chiseled obelisk, the Renaissance Tower has a different appearance from every angle and is going to become a new symbol for the city. The design of the building has been developed by the New Yorkbased FXFOWLE. The design of the building complies with sustainability standards and is aimed to receive the LEED Platinum certification.
