The Basics

As part of its eco-engineering, Istanbul Sapphire incorporates special systems that absorb sunlight and ultraviolet beams, and buffer the building’s residents from negative weather conditions and external noise. The luxurious amenities in Istanbul Sapphire include a large shopping mall, many restaurants, an indoor mini-golf course, vertical gardens, and a swimming pool with views of the Bosphorus.
