Who said that the best retail is only found in the “recognised” retail cities of the world! The Zorlu Center in Istanbul is home to Crate and Barrel, Eataly and one of the coolest Apple stores I have seen outside of Fifth Avenue. It is a fantastic example of Istanbul’s meteoric rise up the international retail rankings.
This centre provides a combination of superb public realm including extensive use of natural planting, extensive terracing and water features with contemporary design but above all an enviable tenant mix that is literally the “who’s who” of international premium retailing.
This tenant mix combined with some of the best catering and restaurants in a retail development in Istanbul has few international comparables. Definitely worth a visit!
