Tersane Istanbul Overview and Details

TERSANE ISTANBUL PROMISES TO BE THE NEW DOWNTOWN OF ISTANBUL, WITH ITS RICH VARIETY OF SPACES AND REMARKABLE EXPERIENCES. 

Tersane Istanbul: The New Downtown of the City 

While every city has a downtown, Istanbul has many! Sprawling past the borders of its Historical Peninsula around the 18th century, Istanbul has grown into a multi-centered global metropolis straddling both Europe and Asia. The city’s true heart, though, remained the fabled inlet called Halic (or the Golden Horn). After serving as a hub for industrial production for centuries, Halic is returning to its essence as the center of “good living.” The naval shipyards are currently undergoing an inspiring transformation, undertaken by an all-star team of architects to revive a 600-year-old legacy and return it to the city as the new charming waterfront “neighborhood” of Istanbul. 

INDUSTRIAL HERITAGE 

A short history of Halic (the Golden Horn) and the imperial shipyards that are brought back to life with a meticulous restoration project 

THE FUTURE OF HOSPITALITY 

Four well-thought-out hotel concepts offering a rich array of experiences and a retreat-like atmosphere at the very center of the city 

LIVING BY THE GOLDEN HORN 

Waterfront living in a neighborhood-like setting with unmatched vistas of the Old City through Ottoman architecture 

FASHION + CULINARY DELIGHTS 

A vibrant new stage for the gastronomical talents of Istanbul as well as a creative hub for local designers and international luxury brands.

EVENTS + ICONIC MUSEUMS 

A centuries-old Ottoman imperial garden and two world-class museums meet a pristine 2-km coastline, set to be a lively destination with exclusive events.

 Tersane Istanbul is the city's new vibrant neighborhood by the Golden Horn— located close to all the top attractions at the very heart of the metropolis. 

With Tersane Istanbul, the Golden Horn is ready to once again become a vibrant destination in the city! 

HOW THE SULTAN'S DREAM CAME TRUE:

THE OTTOMAN CONQUEST OF ISTANBUL,

THE ROYAL GARDENS AND PALACES ALONG

THE SHORES OF HALIC, THE RISE OF THE LARGEST NAVAL FORCE IN THE MEDITERRANEAN, AND MODERNIZATION THROUGH THE ARRIVAL OF STONE SLIPWAYS, STEAM-POWERED VESSELS, FIRST ENGINEERING SCHOOLS, AND MORE. 

Peeling Back

The Layers of the City 

Tersane Istanbul is ready to transform the historic Ottoman naval shipyards into the true heart of Istanbul once again. Hidden from public view for almost six centuries, the old shipyards will become a vibrant part of urban life following an outstanding conservation project designed to reveal the evolution of this vital area. 

Tersane Istanbul will surprise Istanbul lovers while deeply honoring the city’s legendary past. 

Istanbul: the City of Prosperity 

Did you know that the Golden Horn, the pristine estuary separating the Old City and the old Genoese neighborhood of Galata, was “the reason” why Istanbul settled where it is today? The Golden Horn has been the symbol of abundance since Byzantine times, as well as a perfect natural harbor that made Istanbul the most important commercial hub of the Mediterranean and the Near East during the Middle Ages. 

The Ottomans Inherit the Jewel of the Crown 

Just two years after the conquest of Istanbul by Sultan Mehmed II, Tersane-i Amire (The Imperial Arsenal) was founded at the mouth of the same river at Kasimpasa in 1455. The successive sultans continued to invest in the imperial shipyard by commissioning new slipways and pools used for the construction of battleships that 

positioned the Ottoman navy among the top three of the world in the end, after the British and the French. By the 18th and 19th centuries, Tersane-i Amire had become one of the biggest shipyards in the Mediterranean and was frequently compared to the Arsenal of Venice that hosts the celebrated Venice Biennale today. 

Tersane: the Most Cosmopolitan Spot  in Istanbul 

The Imperial Arsenal had its heyday during the reign of Sultan Selim III when engineers from Sweden and France were first invited to introduce the technological advances in the global shipbuilding industry. That was when the workshops and giant slipways of Taskizak and Valide were built with the aim of making the first steam- powered vessels of the Empire. One of the world’s first submarines (designed by the Swedish industrialist and arms dealer Thorsten Nordenfelt) was also assembled at Taskizak in 1886. 

Honoring the Industrial Heritage 

During the 19th and 20th centuries, the Golden Horn was the epicenter of industrial production in Istanbul, causing some undesired results for the locals, like water pollution. The regional authorities decided to restore the Golden Horn to its ”old glory“ by decentralizing industry from the metropolitan areas in the 1980s. In 2001, Camialti and Taskizak shipyards moved to their new industrial sites at the periphery of the city. Today, the naval shipyards are getting ready to be reborn as Tersane Istanbul, a carefully planned contemporary integrated urban development project that will deeply honor the city’s legendary past. 

A VITAL PART OF ISTANBUL’S CHARACTER IS THE BEAUTY AND THE DIVERSITY OF ITS SEASIDE LOCATIONS. NOW, THE CITY HAS A BRAND NEW COASTLINE TO ENJOY! 

AFTER SERVING THE LOCAL INDUSTRIES FOR MORE THAN A CENTURY, HALIC IS GETTING BACK TO ITS ESSENCE WITH THE UNIQUE MIX-USE WATERFRONT DEVELOPMENT AT TERSANE ISTANBUL. 

TOTAL PLOT AREA  242,000 sqm 

COASTLINE  2 km

TOTAL OPEN AREA  150,000 sqm 

WATERFRONT  2 marinas, capacity of 140 yachts

AS WELL AS MANSIONS OVERLOOKING A VIEW OF BALAT; AND FINALLY A HEALTH HOTEL PERCHED ATOP THE FASHION DISTRICT, SURROUNDED BY THE GARDENS OF AYNALIKAVAK PAVILION, ALL FOUR SPACES COMBINE TO MAKE TERSANE ISTANBUL THE PERFECT PLACE TO ESCAPE IT ALL, IN THE VERY CENTER OF THE CITY. 

Your New Retreat in Istanbul 

Istanbul is a city shaped by water more than any other force. Located at Halic,

Tersane Istanbul stands out as the city’s new go-to destination, with a distinctive collection of four hotels immersed in a balmy, retreat-like setting along the Golden Horn! 

The New Coastal Charm of Istanbul 

It is no coincidence that the leading global hospitality chains of Istanbul have predominantly preferred to be at exclusive seaside locations around the city. Halic now undertakes a similar role as a natural extension of the Bosphorus, as the area’s industrial heritage is revived through a well-thought-out urban conservation and transformation endeavor undertaken at Tersane Istanbul —all with the aim of responding to the needs of modern city dwellers. 

To provide a satisfactory mix of hospitality, living, and retail spaces, Tersane Istanbul will feature four luxury hotels with 1100 rooms, including Rixos Tersane as the flagship of the group. Meanwhile, serviced apartments ranging from lofts to seaside mansions will become an attractive opportunity 

for those who would like to call Tersane Istanbul “home.” Each hotel at Tersane Istanbul will have a distinctive  character and cater to a wide array of tastes. Providing resort-style luxury, these hotels will be inspired by the local culture, history, as well as community spirit of the area. 

One of the four high-end international hotel brands

to be introduced at the waterfront of Tersane Istanbul will revive old European charm with its ultra-luxury boutique setting, while its serviced seaside mansions will set a new standard for hospitality in Istanbul. The other will be part of a 5-star luxury hotel chain, with a more contemporary and resort-like feel, featuring its own branded apart units that would provide the perfect refuge from bustling city life for the globetrotting, trendsetting clientele. Both hotels’ branded apart units would be the perfect choice for guests visiting Istanbul for an extended stay who would like to have exclusive access to hotel amenities. 

The health hotel of the collection will provide the perfect wellness retreat at its secluded hilltop position overlooking the Ottoman gardens of Aynalıkavak Pavilion. The guests of this hotel will also have easy access to the Luxury Plaza, where the best international and local fashion brands are clustered. The pedestrian- friendly design of Tersane Istanbul will allow the guests of all four hotels to enjoy the exceptional beauty and tranquility of the waterfront, as well as various cultural activities, great food, and shopping outlets just a few delightful steps away. 

Each hotel at Tersane Istanbul will have a distinctive character and cater to a wide array of tastes. 

Providing resort-style luxury, Tersane Istanbul hotels will be inspired by the local culture, history, as well as community spirit of the area. 

Rixos Tersane, an Impeccable Approach to the Luxury City-Resort 

Rixos Tersane will soon join the highly exclusive array of luxury hotels lined up along the coastal strip of Istanbul. Although currently the only Istanbul outpost of Rixos Hotels is located in Pera, Rixos Tersane will be the true flagship of the group upon opening its doors, as the hotel will have several unmatched features. Promising an unforgettable experience for its guests, the hotel will stand out with the depth of its architectural concept, offering a great variety of room types, of which the majority will have sea views. The hotel will also be home to restaurants and social spaces scattered around a collection of converted brick and stone warehouses, and a state-of-the-art main building with uninterrupted views of the Old City and the Golden Horn. The ballroom of the hotel will also have a privileged location within the plan, allowing event organizers to connect indoor and outdoor spaces and integrate adjacent gardens creatively. 

Another exceptional quality of Rixos Tersane is its special relationship with its hinterland. Rixos Tersane’s underlying design philosophy allows public access to the whole waterfront of the historic shipyards, proudly a “first” for the city. This makes Tersane Istanbul a new window opening out to sea from a perspective never seen before, since the naval shipyards had been hidden from the public eye for centuries! The guests of Rixos Tersane will feel as if they are strolling around an industrial heritage museum, alluring thanks to all the historical elements, relics, and photos successfully woven into the hotel’s design. 

A Cinematic Vision Developed for the Interiors 

Although the masterplan of the whole site and the architectural concept of Rixos Tersane belong to the leading Turkish design office of Tabanlıoğlu Architects, the main approach to the interiors comes from the California-based Powerstrip Studio. This fruitful collaboration ensures that the interior design of the hotel expresses variety and allure through different spaces and functions. Powerstrip Studio’s co-founders Ted Turner and Dayna Lee are known for their outstanding work as creative directors and set designers for world-famous fashion photographers and film directors. 

As experts on creating fulfilling interior spaces for resorts, hotels, and spas, Turner and Lee foresee Rixos Tersane as a place for an immersive and curious voyage of discovery, where guests escape from their daily routine. The interior design attitude is centered around the core concept of “Modern History,” where each space tells the story of the natural evolution of a deeply historical place that changed the map of the modern world as we know it! The maritime industrial materials, stone and brick walls, as well as steel and shipyard timber blend perfectly with Ottoman patterns at this modern interpretation of a calm and romantic luxury lifestyle. As an urban destination resort set on historically listed architectural foundations, Rixos Tersane has been designed to excel at the highest standards of luxury, without ever ceasing to surprise! 

The collection of global hotel brands at Tersane Istanbul will provide the perfect refuge from bustling city life for a trendsetting clientele. 

660 APART UNITS AND AN OFFICE AREA OF 20,000 SQUARE METERS: FULLY SERVICED LUXURY APARTMENTS WITH SEAMLESS INDOOR-OUTDOOR LIVING, LOFTS TO ATTRACT A YOUNGER CLIENTELE WITH A DELIGHTFUL NEIGHBORLY VIBE AND SLEEK CONTEMPORARY INTERIORS, SPACIOUS BALCONIES AND TERRACES WITH UNMATCHED VISTAS OF THE OLD CITY, AND HOME-OFFICE UNITS LOOKING OVER A LIVELY SHOPPING PLAZA. 

The Art of Living by the Water 

The new exclusive living units of Tersane Istanbul will revive the ages-old art of living by the water—which Istanbul residents have taken to a whole new level—and will feel like an oasis within the dense urban fabric of Istanbul. 

Living at a Luxury Yali Apartment with Historical Vistas 

Before losing its natural charm to 18th-century industrial production, Halic was at the heart of a self-indulgent lifestyle immersed in lush Ottoman gardens by the water. Coastal palaces and mansions were lined up all along its shores, as is the case with the rest of the Bosphorus coastline. Today, only the Aynalıkavak Pavilion adjacent to Tersane Istanbul survives as a testimony to the good old days. Its charming little garden is the last remaining royal garden of the past, side by side with royal shipyards. 

Now, the 5-star serviced units of Tersane Istanbul are here to revive Istanbul dwellers’ age-old love of living by the water. Residing in one of the yali (seaside) apartments of Tersane Istanbul would rival the pleasure of living in an exquisite Ottoman summer mansion along the Bosphorus, only this time accompanied by a breathtaking Old City panorama, spanning from the Seraglio (the Topkapı Palace) and the Hagia Sophia to the old Greek neighborhood of Phanar and the Theodosian walls of Constantinople. 

These fully serviced furnished apartments will offer seamless indoor-outdoor living, just 10 m away from the water. Their open-concept layout with smaller kitchens will allow yali owners to take advantage of the leasing services provided, while the social facilities of an adjacent 5-star hotel will be just a pleasant stroll away. 

Life in Lofts at Tersane will be shaped by the modern “live, work, and play” attitude to urban living.
