Mersin 022

view map

One of the main shopping streets. The hotel in the back is a landmark. It is pretty ugly, the architects must have been working on a low budget, or mayb e all the nice things are on the inside, so the guests can see them.

The street was under construction which gave it some messiness that I appreciated. Bad for business, though.

For the high rise: as far as i know both it's architecht and developer was not well known turkish firms. may be it was a first time try. anyways it was built in 80's and it was the tallest building in balkans and middle east, for some time. Their projection was (what i read) Mersin real estate market would boom because of free trade zone in mersin, but it never happened. it's ugly but not more than the collapsed "world trade center"..ha ha hah...Thanks for the pictures and comments...great work...
