As one of the fast-developing areas in Istanbul, it is interesting to look at what is drawing the investors and immigrants to join this peaceful location, Kagithane. The 16km2 area which was once a working industry is open to urban regeneration projects, where they are replacing old buildings with new ones to give this area a modern feel.
Besides the new projects that are attracting investors, there are other factors that make Kagithane stand out from other areas in Istanbul and they will be explained below.
kagithane district is on the European side of Istanbul. It is said that, in Istanbul, all roads lead to Kagithane which makes it a central location. The E-5 highway leads to Sisli which is on the south of Kagithane while on its north, it meets Eyup and Maslak on TEM road. With a good public transport system, the airport is easily accessible from Kagithane. The fact that the district meets both of the Bosphorus bridges also puts it on a map for tourists. The centrality of the location also makes it desirable for residents who work in the business district of Levent.
