The demolition works of derelict buildings that are in danger of collapsing and endanger the safety of life and property in Fatih have been initiated.

Mayor of Fatih Mustafa Demir talking about the works said, "Today, we are finally going to eliminate the troubled regions. It is necessary to construct buildings which are similar as the square millimeter of the collapsed buildings, this texture will be preserved.”

Fatih Municipality started the demolition works of derelict buildings which are in danger of collapsing and are unsafe in the district. Along with the demolition work that started from Balat Yıldırım Caddesi, the demolition of 8 derelict buildings was initiated at the beginning. Mayor of Fatih Mustafa Demir gave information about how their works would proceed by answering the questions of the members of the press on the street where demolition works have started. Mayor Demir drew attention to the fact that the demolished buildings would be rebuilt in accordance with their originals.

Mayor Demir said, “Firstly, the survey, restitution and restoration projects of 125 derelict buildings detected across the district are being prepared if they are registered works. The demolition work is performed after the approval of these projects by the Council of Monuments. Along with the works, it is aimed to remove the buildings which are faced with the danger of collapsing and pose a threat for the safety of life and property from the district.”

8 BUILDINGS WILL BE REMOVED AND DEMOLISHED FOR THE MOMENT

Mayor of Fatih Mustafa Demir talking about the demolition works that started in Balat said, “Today, 8 buildings are going to be removed and demolished. We have finished our works related to buildings that became abandoned over time in Balat, pose danger for the society, for the people staying here at night in terms of the environment and us. What these studies are, we received the projects of these buildings, and we presented to the Council of Monuments. The Council of Monuments makes decision by coming personally and examining on site. We decided to demolish 8 of them, we are now demolishing them. 31 buildings remain to be demolished. The decision process related to these buildings around Balat is going on. Of course all of them will not be demolished because there are some decisions previously received and negotiations.”

“It is necessary to construct buildings which are similar as the square millimeter of the collapsed buildings”

Mayor Demir drawing attention that the architectural texture of collapsed buildings would be preserved said that, “The façades of the buildings are extremely nice, they are good especially in terms of architecture, the façades of some of them will be preserved, decisions will be taken to demolish the back of the building, to rebuild and reconstruct them. We have been working for this since 2015 for the approval of these projects. Today, we are finally going to eliminate the troubled regions. It is necessary to construct buildings which are similar as the square millimeter of the collapsed buildings, we are very relaxed on that issue, this texture will be preserved. As Fatih Municipality, we have already built the buildings that would remain standing with simple construction repairs in Yıldırım Caddesi, it is a highly successful application. Its applications are also same in the world today, what we see here today is a bad fortune for us, we will give back with the same. Our purpose is to protect the culture and history of this place, and these buildings which are their representatives today.”
