Consisting of 7 blocks and 190 residences in Bağcılar Kirazlı District, “As Fatih Kent Sitesi” was declared a risky area in 2017. The site, which has the status of a risky area, came to the fore once again with the recent earthquakes. The existing damage on the site, increasing with the new earthquakes and the fears of the citizens who have to sit here, became news on TV channels along with many mass media. The residents of the site, who have had the same nightmare for about 4 years, came together at a common table in the works they carried out with KİPTAŞ, an affiliate of IMM. On January 31, 2020, the residents of the site, who achieved a majority of 3 out of 2, decided on the “Exemplary On-Site Transformation Model” offered by KİPTAŞ within the scope of urban transformation.
FLAT SELECTIONS COMPLETED IN JANUARY 2021
KİPTAŞ, who quickly mobilized the process, completed the draft project and pre-feasibility studies in February 2020 and informed the delegation representing the residents of the site. The talks and studies, which accelerated as of February 2020, were suspended for 2020 months due to the pandemic in March 3. With the work resumed on June 19, 2020, "preliminary architectural project" and project visuals were prepared. The delegation representing the site received the first presentation from KİPTAŞ in September 2020. 190 out of 170 independent units residing on the site gave a letter of consent (permit) to the institution on 22 September 2020 for the urban transformation of their residences to be carried out by KİPTAŞ. KİPTAŞ revised the project in line with the requests from beneficiaries. After the revisions, the selection of flats was completed as of January 2021.
