In 2014 YDA Construction Industry and Trade, Inc. Started the Real Estate Development works of the project, whose building license has recently been issued. Construction of the project will commence in September 2017. The planned date of completion for the YDA Parkline Residences Project is December 2019. The YDA Parkline project is located on the Park Street axis, a bustling commercial street in the Çayyolu district, between the rapidly developing Çayyolu and Yaşamkent. Our project is composed of a total of 493 residential units, most of which are 4-bedroom apartments, and commercial and social areas that give service to these units. In addition to the extra care shown to the way the units are organized, attention has been given to offer an integrated approach and a diversity of services to residents such as an Indoor Pool, Fitness, Sauna, Massage Room, Turkish Bath, Playgrounds, a Social Life Center with a Cafeteria, a Supermarket to meet Daily needs, and a variety of Commercial Spaces. All buildings on the approximately 33 thousand m2 land have been positioned on the perimeter so that the project can provide the largest possible green areas for use. Tall building blocks,
which symbolize the project, have been placed along the North axis of the area overlooking the forest, in order to avoid blocks to be seen and felt dense. These blocks have been designed in differing heights to distinguish the project from others and to prevent monotony. As a result of this work, a 26,500 m2 landscape has been created in addition to the block bases. On the south axis of the area are horizontal mass solutions for several reasons such as having a balancing effect considering the entirety of the buildings, preventing the casting of shadows on the green space at the center, and catering to individuals, who prefer to be surrounded by greenery. A novel scheme that circles the core has been used instead of a symmetrical layout so that each apartment in the high building blocks is the only one dominating its own façade, an advantage which is accentuated in the use of balconies and winter gardens. This idea was adopted as the basic of planning. Apartments’ interiors present a cuisine for the entire family to spend more time with each other that combines the kitchen with the living area, positioned at the center of the entrance and the main hallway, so that the entrance is bright and spacious, and that all daytime living areas are together. The living room is the most spacious area of the unit, positioned in a corner in order to get sunlight and offer views from two façades. Spacious in the apartment are not only living areas, but also the cloakroom, laundry room, and walk-in closet, all sensibly designed to accommodate ease of use. The aim is to create a Project which caters to the various existing and potential needs of its residents, combining spacious and versatile units, offering a lush green and rich social activities bringing residents together.
