The worth of land and residential properties in Eyüp, Çatalca, Arnavutköy, Sarıyer, Beykoz and Çekmeköy have increased nearly four times, the raise in the quality of housing in regions like Sancaktepe are drawing increasing interest.
Türkiye Sınai Kalkınma Bankası (TSKB) Real Estate Appraisal Co. General Manager Makbule Yönel Maya stated that after the construction of Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge began and even after the announcement of its constructed route, activities on the property market increased in value Halkalı-Başakşehir-Arnavutköy-Kayabaşı axis and in Zekeriyaköy on the European side of Istanbul and Beykoz, Çekmeköy and Sancaktepe regions on the Anatolian side. Declaring that the price of real estate and land close to the North Marmara Highway, access roads and the third bridge has rised in value , especially in Eyüp, Çatalca, Arnavutköy, Sarıyer, Beykoz and Çekmeköy. Maya said: “The result of Istanbul’s new airport should be taken into consideration regarding the increase in real estate prices in Arnavutköy and Çatalca.”
The regions seeing the highest rise in value of real estate are Arnavutköy Karaburun, Beykoz Riva, Sarıyer Uskumruköy and Çekmeköy Nişantepe thanks to construction of the third bridge, Maya said that real estate prices reportedly increased four times in those districts. Maya said that amongst housing developments situated on the North Marmara Highway route and near to its access roads, namely the Sancaktepe region, has seen additional interest and is undergoing urban transformation with new housing projects. In Consideration of the number of projects currently in the planning stage that are under construction, Maya said that 4,000 new residence housing projects will be provided to the area of Sancaktepe by 2018, followed by Çekmeköy with almost 930 projects.
Maya said Some of the housing residential projects in Çekmeköy will be completed by the end of this year. “Considering the area is near the third bridge’s access roads on the Anatolian side, life is expected to start in Sultanbeyli’s new market consisting of 650 houses by early 2017.”
Maya stated , the districts of Zekeriyaköy and Uskumruköy in Sarıyer are dominant areas near the North Marmara Highway with 300 new housing projects. “It is a fact that there will not be any areas left for new construction around the bridge, therefore we see that the new projects in these areas are now under construction especially close to the bridge’s exit and access roads , with real estate property developers taking major steps towards new projects in these areas,” .
Maya said the housing prices in Göktürk, Zekeriyaköy, Başakşehir, Çekmeköy, Sancaktepe and Beykoz districts have increased in value due to the construction of the third bridge but this rise is not as high as the price of land there.
These type of huge projects lead to increases in value in two different stages, Maya said according . The first stage occurs during the construction period directly following the announcement of the project and the second stage occurs during the project’s revival after its completion. In a statement last week , Transportation, Maritime and Communications Minister Ahmet Arslan said that the establishment of new construction areas on the third bridge’s route was out of the question. Constructed as part of the North Marmara Highway project, Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge is located on a 148-kilometer section of the Odayeri- Paşaköy area. Construction of the bridge started on May 29, 2013 and is the world’s widest suspension bridge. This work of art was opened on Friday, Aug. 26 with the attendance of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, Parliament Speaker İsmail Kahraman, Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım and leaders of different countries.
