St. Petersburg Forum
St. Petersburg Forum is located at Moskovsky District on the south of St. Petersburg. The land plot is situated at the crossing of Moskovsky Avenue and the Obvodny Canal; at the border of the Moskovsky and Central districts. The project is developed as a master plan which aims to integrate the residential quarter at the north of the Obvodny Canal with the southern part of the district by transforming the former industrial area into a new city center. The quantity of public spaces in St. Petersburg is inadequate compared with the new development rate of the city. The public spaces are mostly historical former centers which are important nodes in the city. St. Petersburg Forum is designed to offer a new public space with contemporary architecture.

Nurol REIT has planned to realize a mixed-use centre on the land plot of 55,000 m² located on Basın Ekspres Road on the west of Istanbul. Basın Ekspres Road, formerly developed as an industrial area, is planned to become the new Central Bussiness District on the west of Istanbul. The road which connects two main traffic arteries of the city -TEM and E-5 highways- is at the same time one of the main roads that is the connection road to Atatürk International Airport. The distance of the land plot from the city centre and the lack of social infrastructure at the area guided to develop a mixed-use centre that will become an attraction centre for the city dwellers. For this aim, the residential complex is designed to create a “neighborhood” inspired from the urban pattern and spatial diversity concept at the city centre composed of a mixture of low-rise and high-rise structures with equal distribution of density. The design depends on the balance of open and enclosed spaces offering alternative open-air facilities. The buildings that form the neighborhood pattern are planned to be integrated with the pedestrian streets, landscape pattern and urban plazas with varying scales. The project program is planned as zones according to functions. The project with GBA of 280,000 m² is comprised of residences with 100,000 m², offices with 24,000 m², hotel with 9,000 m², retail units with 27,000 m² and sports centre with 3,000 m². The open spaces around the buildings are composed of streets, public squares and green areas. The most important element of this composition is the “Valley” axis that connects Basın Ekpress Road with the secondary street on the east. The “Valley” accompanied with retail units and landscape elements will create a social center that the dwellers would gather together. The residence, office, retail, hotel and sport functions in addition to the priority given to the pedestrian areas will create a lively urban life in Nurol Residential Complex.
