Not only will Istanbul, Turkey’s economic powerhouse, be hosting this weekend’s F1 Turkey Grand Prix but soon the city where east meets west will be home to the world’s largest car showroom, expected to attract 6 million visitors annually.
Autopia Europia will cover some 2 million square feet, feature 5 different levels and more than 400 brands, selling in excess of 2,500 new and used models. Located in the burgeoning suburb of Beylikduzu on the European side of the city, the state of the art showroom also features an adrenalin pumping rooftop race track where potential buyers can take the vehicles for a spin before buying.
Designed by award winning Istanbul and New York based architects, Global Architectural Development (GAD) and constructed by the established Kullar’s Ginza subsidiary, Autopia will also become a tourist attraction in its own right forecast to attract over 6 million visitors each year. There will be food and drink shops, cafés and restaurants, banks, tuning shops and a car park with 900 space capacity for the local community, such as those living at No1 Knightsbridge, to also enjoy.
Just minutes from Autopia Europia, No1 Knightsbridge, the stunning new development of luxury residences available from £41,000, epitomises the transformation currently underway in Beylikduzu. Already a popular suburb with young professionals and middle-class families, only 20 minutes from the international airport and well connected to the financial centre, the population is expected to increase three fold by 2015 reaching 1 million.
Steven Worboys, driving enthusiast and MD of Experience International which is marketing No1 Knightsbridge, comments,
“The selection of Beylikduzu as the site of the world’s largest car showroom is testament to the potential of this suburb both as and up and coming residential area and tourism destination. Investment on this scale with further bolster services and amenities, attracting millions each year and driving demand for accommodation in the area.”
Meeting that demand, No1 Knightsbridge offers studio, 1, 2 and 3 bedroom luxury apartments designed by award winning Turkish architect Metin Hepgüler (the same architect behind Otoport, a new automotive shopping mall under construction covering some 126,000 square meters also located in Beylikduzu).
