The site is located next to the Aegean Free Zone, which is one of Turkey's largest free zones and export bases.

It is just across the fuarizmir, the largest exhibition venue within Turkey and is 6 kilometers from the airport and 12 kilometers from the city center. The site is strategically located and İzmir Metropolitan Municipality is planning an “airport to city center” metro project and one of the main stations will be the venue and the convention center, which will provide enhanced connectivity between the airport, city center, and the site. In addition, the site is across Aktepe and Emrez Neighbourhoods Urban Transformation and Development Area (UTD-122ha.), which is one of the largest urban transformation areas within İzmir Metropolitan Municipality. The  project   aspires   to   be   the   first   zero-carbon convention  center and hotel in  Turkey, demonstrating how convention venues of the future should look like..  This  is  a unique opportunity to  showcase  high  sustainability standards within the city.

Expected Land Use:

The project is expected to include both a hotel & convention center built with a modular and flexible system. It should also include commercial areas and services such as restaurants, cafes, wellbeing centres, markets, car rental, offices and ecological services. The development should aim to be green and zero carbon with a focus on green economy.

Type of Property transfer included:

Tender based on Profit Sharing Model & Design-Build-Operate-Transfer (DBOT):

According to the determined rate, the profit of the Center will be shared between the stakeholders (bidder consortium, the IMM and its sub-company İZFAŞ) for a certain period of time. To identify the duration of operation and the revenue sharing ratio, a municipal assembly decision must be taken. The local regulations will be followed during the tender process. The winner of the tender will undertake construction cost and transfer the operating rights to the Municipality after the termination of contract.


Plot Area: The site is 40832sqm and the construction site is planned to be 32666sqm for indoor and outdoor/semi outdoor places. The current precedent of 0.8 Floor Area Ratio (FAR), can be increased with the approval of the Municipal Council if needed.

Site Ownership: The site is under the full property of İzmir Metropolitan Municipality (IMM). The land is allocated for the construction of a convention center and is already listed in the official zoning plans.
