Master-planned on over 13 hectares, Istinye features a range of retail, restaurant and entertainment venues serviced by four levels of sub-grade parking. The project’s centerpiece is the Grand Rotunda, a dramatic arena-like space beneath a scalloped, segmented roof structure. Supported by a central exterior mast and suspension cables, this 100-meter-diameter hard-shell canopy encloses a food court, a 10-screen stadium-seating cinema, themed retail and an amphitheater. The open-air Lifestyle Center, with central town park, street-side shopping and two levels of specialty retail, offers a relaxed atmosphere, while the department store anchors, under the massive skylights and abundant natural lighting of the three-level Fashion Zone, present a fresh take on an enclosed mall.
