In this sense, our work continues. Besides, our commuter train that we used in the past is here. With the project initiated by the Ministry, its production continues with the logic of a nostalgia train. all this kazanAfter a few years, this area, which we have forgotten for a moment, used as some warehouses or necessities for a moment, will turn into a lively place where we meet with local and foreign tourists. We are currently working on an intensive gas station. There are some steps we need to take in itself, there are administrative processes. Everything is proceeding at a reasonable pace.”


Saying, “We want to show the ambiance of Hasanpaşa to Istanbulites, at least as a start, before the end of this year,” said İmamoğlu, “We are very hopeful with the sea connection, suburban train connection, the historical texture within itself and the transformation of industrial structures into culture and art. We are in one of the areas. I hope we will see the result together. The name is designed when the day comes. But the names that already make their name felt, give a more permanent and more owned feeling by our citizens. The name 'Yedikule' is also a historical name. Yedikule is a name we all feel and know very well. In the past, very valuable events were also held here. It has a club, a district, everything Yedikule is known for. In that sense, being called by their own names creates a more special environment.”

Now our Metropolitan Municipality is putting the project on its feet here. We believe once again that the Gazhane project will settle in the city's memory as a social space. I have no doubt that it will be a new destination. Of course, in the same way, Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality has a work on the walls starting from Yedikule. We have been working in Yedikule Dungeons for about two years. Hopefully, Yedikule Dungeon has started to take its place in the city's memory as a cultural venue for the last two years. This year we will have much more important activities. Now the Ministry of Transport is also commissioning the suburban line. On the one hand, the connection to the coast… Institutions protect this place in an integrated way. I believe that Yedikule will hopefully be a better place for the future. It will turn into a place that will be used by both the public and the tourists,” he said.
