Istanbul is one of the world’s biggest cities, it is also the first investment destination in the middle east according to recent economic studies. investors from all over the world have been wanting to invest in real estate in Istanbul due to its special location that lies between two continents: Asia and Europe. Plus, many huge real estate projects have been built in this city. It is referred that investment has not been a coincidence, but it was a result of the hard work that the Turkish government has done during the last twenty years; it constructed highways, main roads, and connected the whole city with each other by roads that are the largest and most modern in Europe. 

We cannot talk about the highways in Istanbul in just one essay, but Panorama Property will take you on a quick tour to get to know some of them, and we will talk about the E5 and the E6 highways. 

TEM Highway: Future center and Europe’s Main Nerve: 

– The word (TEM) or as it is called in Turkey (E80) stands for Transportation European Motorway). Means the European highway. It is considered to be the most important highway in all of Europe as it starts from Lisbon crossing into ten countries including Turkey and ending in the Iranian-Turkish borders. 

– This highway was constructed in 1977 with logistic support from the European Union and it is 6102 km long. 

– TEM is a main road for Istanbul and it connects many neighborhoods such as: (Saryer, Besiktas, Kağıthane, Eyup Sultan, Sultan Gazi, Gazi Osman Pasha, Bağcılar, Kücükçekmece, Başakşehir, Avciler, Esenyurt, Büyükçekmece, Silivri, and Catalca). these neighborhoods are connected with the TEM highway through minor roads. 

Investment Importance of the TEM (E80) Highway: 

1. TEM road is connected with the two most important financial and investment areas in Istanbul which are: The Basin Express and Saryer. 

2. TEM will be the main road of the modern Istanbul City that will be built on the sides of the Istanbul Canal, that will be constructed in the upcoming years, the TEM will cross it. 

3. Investment Future: Governmental construction companies have constructed many areas on the TEM road such as Bahçeşehir neighborhood. This area has become a top priority as all the services you need are provided, so we can say that any investment in that area is absolutely successful and secure. 

We cannot talk about such services without mentioning the (Metrobus) line. 

Facts to know about the Metrobus line (E5): 

– The Metrobus line was officially opened in 2007, the last construction stage has finished in 2012. 

– The Metrobus line was constructed to ease moving around and to make most of the areas in Istanbul much more accessible in one of the world’s biggest cities. The road itself was widened and all the kinds of transportations go through that line; bus, minibus, subway, tram, cars and the Metrobus. It is important to mention that the Metrobus is sometimes faster than cars themselves, especially in the evening. 

– This highway consists of two opposite lines with a length of 52 km and 45 Metrobus stations going from the Asian to the European side of Istanbul. 

– The Metrobus line was internationally awarded as the most special environment-friendly roads as it reduces gas emissions. 

– The Metrobus line starts from Büyükçekmece area and ends in Söğütlüçeşme station in the Asian side of Istanbul. It is referred that the Metrobus is the fastest and the cheapest transportation that can take you from the Asian to the European side.

What did the Metrobus line add to the real estate rebirth in Istanbul? 

1. One of the most important factors of the real estate development in Istanbul is the Metrobus for sure. Since it was founded, the real estate prices have increased, and the prices of the apartment and shops that lie near the E5 road increased to double. The price of any real estate in Istanbul became related to whether or not it is close to the Metrobus line. 

2. the location of any apartment, that is: whether or not it is close to the metrobus, became a standard of any rental price or return of any apartment in Istanbul. Therefore, the rental return has increased in this area, especially when it is the best option for all kinds of people as it covers wide areas and makes it easy to move around the city. 

3. Every real estate that is close to the Metrobus line is residential and investment real estate because of the good investment return either in case of reselling or rent.

Istanbul Canal. The 2023 Dream!

مشروع قناة اسطنبول المائية

 The Turkish Ministry of Environment approves the Istanbul Canal Project: 

Murat Kurum, the Turkish minister, has stated that the ministry team had approved the construction of the new Istanbul Canal, he tweeted “We have approved the development plan of Istanbul Canal and we have put it under general consulting”, he continued “We will take rapid steps to enrich our city with the Istanbul Canal”. 

The Istanbul Canal is the biggest dream for the Turkish Government and one of the things to achieve in 2023 that the President talks about continuously. 

Before we talk about the new canal, we have to refer to that the Bosphorus, which connects the Black Sea and the Marmara Sea, is an international sea passage and Turkey has no right to benefit from it until the Treaty of Lausanne ends in 2023. 

Here is a quick tour of this project that will be an economic and architectural revolution and it will attract the world’s attention. 


  1. It will connect the Black Sea and the Marmara Sea, and it will be parallel to the Bosphorus. The canal will go from Kücükçekmece lake with a length of 6149 meters. Then, counting the distance that takes in Sazlidir Dam. Then about 6061vmeters in Başakşehir. Finally, the longest part goes 27383 through the Arnavutköy area, so the canal will be 40-45 km long in total. 
  2. An entire city will be constructed along the new Istanbul Canal, which will draw the world’s attention to it due to its development and modernity. According to the plan published by the Turkish government, two cities will be constructed horizontally along the canal, and the heights of these buildings will be according to the scheme from 3 to 5 floors, with the presence of Services and complexes built in a modern way, from parks and water cities to homes and shops. 
  3. Apartment complexes and stores will be constructed on 39 million square meters and all of it will be in the Arnavutköy area. 
  4. A huge logistics center and port with an area of 2 million square meters will be constructed at the entrance to the canal from the Black Seaside. This center will be one of the largest logistical centers in Turkey and will be linked to the main Istanbul port on the Beylikdüzü coast. 
  5. A huge technology center will be established in the Taya Kaden area with an area of 2.2 million square meters. One of its departments will be devoted to tourism services. Conference and exhibition halls will be constructed in the same center too.
    It is indicated that the center will be in a very close area to Istanbul International Airport to make it more accessible. 
  6. 8 bridges and many aqua cities will be constructed all the way through Istanbul Canal. Two artificial islands will be built too. 

Real Estate Tips from Panorama Property: 

First: Real Estate Prices: 

Real estate prices will rise as soon as the canal project is started, and for those who do not know, the prices of real estate overlooking the Bosphorus are the most expensive and the most in-demand in the Turkish real estate market. The new Istanbul Canal will provide similar views to the ones in the Bosphorus. Therefore, we noticed that investors have been rushing to buy in nearby areas recently because they know that real estate prices will increase at least double once the Istanbul Canal Project is finished. 

Are you looking for the best projects to buy an apartment in Istanbul? We offer you many investment options.

Second: Agricultural Land: 

As we have mentioned earlier, the new canal will extend for a long distance, and it will pass from several areas, some of which are agricultural lands on which real estate and commercial projects will be established, and the most important of these agricultural areas is Arnavutköy, which lies between the new Istanbul airport and the new Istanbul Canal, any piece of land located between these two huge projects is definitely a successful investment project. 

Third: Job Opportunities: 

Istanbul will provide thousands of job opportunities and it will be a tourist place. With that being said, we can now imagine the rental income out in that area. 

In conclusion, Panorama Property advises investing in that area while the prices are low because they will increase as soon as the Government starts the construction.
