Bio Istanbul - Sustainable residential community




As a fully inclusive community, Bio Istanbul provides high quality housing to meet the needs of the staff employed within the development and to help address the overall shortage of quality housing within Istanbul.

The goal of this first residential community is to provide a safe, secure, green and high quality life environment for families, couples and individuals who wish to take advantage of Bio Istanbul’s focus on open spaces, gardens and beauty.

225 units are designed as a combination of villas, apartments and townhouses to meet a wide range of market preferences and tenant requirements. The average gross unit size is 133 m2.

The residential community will attract people with its beauty, simplicity, and serenity, and will include sustainable design features such as extensive pedestrian zones and landscaping, intra-site public transport system, energy efficient buildings, and cutting-edge waste management systems.
