CHP's Tekin said "Istanbul is being betrayed again" and added: "The names of the shareholders in the plots have been hidden. Some people who bought land from some regions were given 15-fold zoning permission in the project.
SözcüAccording to the news of Başak Kaya; CHP Istanbul Deputy Gürsel Tekin said, “The places of the shareholders in the plots were changed ex officio, and the names of the people were hidden. Istanbul is betrayed again. Horizontal architecture words remained in the air. According to the suspended zoning plans, people who bought land from some regions were given 15-fold zoning permission. They have turned to vertical architecture in these parcels, where there are significant people and some politicians.”
Tekin continued his words as follows: “According to the suspended zoning plans, some 'lucky' people who bought land from certain regions were granted 15-fold zoning permits. The lands suddenly changed hands. Information that should have been public was hidden. Are some politicians and companies privileged? They distort the silhouette of Istanbul with vertical constructions, and Kanal Istanbul turned into vertical architecture. While not a single nail has been nailed on the controversial Kanal Istanbul, it has become clear once again that the reason for the haste in the housing projects started by the government in the region is to provide a huge profit gain through building projects rather than constructing a new waterway.”
