The new development comprises three standalone towers and is located in the exclusive Etiler residential area, close to the city’s central business district.

One of the towers will house Mandarin Oriental Etiler, Istanbul with 158 guestrooms and suites and 16 serviced apartments. The remaining two towers will house 251 Residences at Mandarin Oriental.

The Residences at Mandarin Oriental will provide owners with private gardens and views of the Bosphorus. In addition, there will be a full suite of facilities, including two outdoor swimming pools with city skyline views, a fitness centre and six beauty treatment rooms.

The owners and developers of the project are Astaș Holding A.Ş and Yapi & Yapi. This is the Group’s third venture in Turkey with Astaș Holding A.Ş who is the owner of the Group’s two other Turkish properties – the Mandarin Oriental, Bodrum and Mandarin Oriental Bosphorus, Istanbul which is scheduled to open in 2020.

“We're delighted to be announcing a second Mandarin Oriental property in Istanbul, together with an exciting luxury residential project. We look forward to extending further the Group’s presence in one of the world’s most historic and vibrant cities,” said James Riley, group CEO of Mandarin Oriental. “Operating two complementary hotels in a single city is something the Group has already done in Hong Kong and will soon do in London.

"We believe there's room for more than just one Mandarin Oriental hotel in certain select destinations around the world.” he added.
