In a strategic location between the Sea of ​​Marmara and Lake Buyukcekmece, the civilizational transformation project Büyükçekmece kiyi marina is being established. What is this project? What is the extent of the qualitative shift it will bring to the region? What is the impact of all of this on real estate investment in the municipality of Buyukcekmece, which is known to be a municipality about 45 km away from the center of Istanbul?


What is the Büyükçekmece kiyi marina project?

On an area of ​​88 thousand square meters, this project is being constructed, which consists of a commercial market that includes 200 various shops, in addition to a coastal strip with a length of 1,200 meters, a yacht club, a sports club, a hotel, upscale housing, and various services. The project combines the designs of 7 cities, namely: Budapest, Milan, and Paris., Berlin, Bosna Saray, Amsterdam and Istanbul.

Each of these cities will give its character to this place according to the culture of architecture in it, and this project is considered the first of its kind in Turkey of this size.

The project is still under construction. Parts of it have been opened, such as the commercial market, some restaurants and cafes that make up the Saraybosna city section, and the seaport. The remaining sections are still under construction, and the entire project will be delivered at the end of 2024.

Despite the lack of ready-made parts, we can feel luxurious when visiting it, and we are sure from now that this project will have a significant impact on the entire region in terms of investment.


We can notice the beauty of urban design in restaurants and cafes overlooking the sea:


We will go into more detail about this huge project, but before that, we will answer the most important question today.


What is the impact of the Büyükçekmece kiyi marina project on real estate investment in the region?

There is no doubt that the impact will be great because we are never talking about an ordinary marina. It is more distinctive than Beylikduzu Marina, which is always promoted for any project in Beylikduzu or even Esenyurt on the E5 road (it is only 10 minutes away from Beylikduzu Marina). Here is a project. A complete cultural transformation because the neighborhoods surrounding this project are very modest, and this is what reminds us of the Galata port project, which has become a center of attraction for the entire region and an indispensable tourist attraction for anyone visiting Istanbul. Real estate prices near Galata port have risen and demand has risen in general in the region, even for real estate. This is expected as it is an open shopping street with views of the Bosphorus and includes international brands of clothing, cafes and restaurants.


Here we are talking about something completely similar, but in an area of about 45 km from the center of Istanbul. The Buyukcekmece area is mainly considered an area of ​​villas and summer homes, and the presence of a project like this will save its residents from traveling a long distance to reach the center of Istanbul and obtain high-end services from international brands.

The impact of this project on real estate investment is not only in Buyukcekmece, but also in Beylikdüzü, Bahçeşehir, and the properties near the E5 highway. You will find from now on when you enter any sales office for a real estate project in these areas that this marina will be mentioned as a positive point because access to it is very easy from All these areas.

Buyukcekmece municipality is characterized by being a quiet municipality and not crowded, and this is what makes it the favorite place for many who want to have a quiet vacation or are disturbed by the narrow neighborhoods and crowding of the city center.

Even if the delivery of the project takes a year or a little more from today, you can benefit from real estate investment in projects with easy access to this wonderful port. You can also invest in the project itself when opening the residential and hotel apartments section, but this will be for high budgets only.

Now we will return to provide more details about the Büyükçekmece kiyi marina project for those who want to know more.
