[First look] This is Broadway Malyan’s new project to build what is claimed to be the second-tallest tower in the world in Istanbul, Turkey
The 571 metre-tall tower is one of four recently won projects which have led the company to establish a new office in the Turkish capital. Last year the Burj Khalifa in Dubai opened as the world’s tallest tower designed by SOM.
The Istanbul office will focus on boosting the company’s global reach in delivering built environment solutions from ‘concept to physical operation’ and will be headed up by Peter Vaughan.
Gary Whittle, Broadway Malyan managing director, said: ‘The new office will further enhance our global reach and result in a network of 15 bases from São Paulo to Shanghai, distinguished by an unrivalled diversity with 500+ sector experts, distinctive client focus and commitment to a return on design.
‘It is also evidence of our successful international growth strategy, with the practice boasting a strong project pipeline, and actively targeting emerging countries and new markets to continue to grow the business.’
Turnover at the company was up 27 per cent on 2010 for the year ending April 2011 with £25.7 million of the total £40.8 million revenue coming from outside the UK. Broadway Malyan expects to exceed its target turnover of £47.5 million this year.
In Turkey, the practice is working on a 525,000m² project in Seyrantepe, 250,000m² scheme in Beylikduzu, and a 100,000 m² development in Florya.
The Istanbul opening means Broadway Malyan now operates 15 architecture studios worldwide. The office is the third opened by the practice this year.
