Galataport Project

Galataport is one of the largest coastline projects in the world. It is located on the coastline between Karaköy Pier and the building belonging to Mimar Sinan University Fındıklı Campus.

In 2002, the project took its first steps and was announced to the public. Since the first hammer hit in late 2016, construction work has continued to grow. The project is carried out by The Doğuş Construction Group. Galataport project; It covers the construction of piers and breakwaters with a length of approximately 1.238 meters, including the Salipazarı and Karaköy piers. The demolition work at the port started with the old buildings in the Karaköy region, where passenger acceptance and passport procedures were carried out, with one and two floors. Then the demolition work of the warehouses was completed. Later, the building of the Istanbul Modern Art Museum, located in the Galataport project area, was demolished and the construction work was accelerated. The demolition work took time, and a year later, the concrete pouring process was completed and the construction of new buildings began.
