Istanbul Levent, is a skyscraper, and tallest building of Istanbul's Levent main business district and the second tallest building in Istanbul and Turkey, after the Diamond of Istanbul located in the nearby Maslak business district when completed in June 2009.
It is the country's first ecological skyscraper. The tower rises 54 floors above ground level having an above-ground roof height of 238 meters (and a structural height of 261 meters including its spire, which is part of the design and not a radio antenna, and is therefore counted as a part of the overall structural height of the building.)
The tower is strategically located close to the TEM and O1 main road arteries and the Bosphorus and F.S.M. bridges, has a direct access to the subway from its 3rd basement floor, and is situated on one of Istanbul's main thoroughways, in the middle of the city's central Besiktas, Etiler and Sisli districts.
The tower consists of 64 floors (54 above-ground and 10 basement floors), communal living floors, extensive parking spaces, a large shopping mall, and 47 floors for residences.
There are specialized floors which have private gardens between every 3 floors, and every 9 floors are separated from each other by a communal living area or mechanical floors.
The consistency of garden maintenance is under the residence management company's responsibility.
The project is the first ecological building of Turkey, having two special glass shells which can take the outside air naturally by holes located at every 3 floors. Thanks to this system, the inhabitants of the building will not be affected by the negative weather conditions and external urban noise, in addition to providing a buffer with the outside atmosphere and the internal facilities. Absorption of the sunlight and ultraviolet beams will be ensured by a special curtain system that's automatically controlled through a computer, depending on the season, day and hour.
