560-year-old Bedrettin Neighborhood to be Demolished for Havaray and Tube Tunnel Construction: Bedrettin District, established during the conquest of Istanbul, will be demolished for Havaray and tube tunnel construction.

While the future of the project at Haliç Shipyards remains uncertain, the situation of the neighborhoods in this region, whose past dates back to the conquest of Istanbul, arouses concern. Bedrettin Mahallesi, which was established in the first period of the Ottoman Empire and where the houses built for the workers who worked in shipbuilding during the conquest, are still standing, is one of them.

He got rid of the plan, but…

According to the news in the party; All of the houses in Bedrettin Neighborhood in Beyoğlu have deeds. 98 percent of the buildings, 2 percent of which are privately owned, are also foundation property. The neighborhood was declared a historical site 20 years ago. With the site announcement, the residents could not do any repairs in their homes. For this reason, the old houses were declared as tourism, privatization and renovation areas in the 2009/2010 and 1/1000 scale plans issued by Beyoğlu in 1 and 5000.


The plans were canceled as a result of the appeal filed by the Beyoglu Neighborhood Associations, including the Bedrettin Neighborhood Association, before the plan could be implemented. However, the cancellation of the plan could not overcome the concerns of the residents.

Before the local elections of 30 March, Mayor Kadir Topbaş's two elections promise to influence this historic neighborhood. The first station of Havaray, which is planned to be built between Şişhane-Mecidiyeköy, passes through a part of this neighborhood. In this small and cramped neighborhood, some of the historic buildings will have to be demolished to make the stop. This is not the only danger in the 560 annual neighborhood. Another project of Topbaş, Unkapanı Bridge will be demolished and the passage of the tube under the sea will affect the neighborhood. One of the ways of connecting this project will pass through the neighborhood.

Founded in 1453, Bedrettin Mahallesi is run in Haliç Shipyard; It was established for Libya, Egypt and Syrian workers. Bedrettin Neighborhood Association President Süleyman Songur said: zaman The workers at that time then went out of these houses and were replaced by Roma.
