Zeytinburnu Istanbul

Location

The working class area of Zeytinburnu is on the European side of Istanbul , on the shoreline of the Sea of Marmara and just beyond the ancient city walls and Yedikule castle. 

Income

Once an area used by the leather industry, evidence of which remains today from the rows of 6-storey housing and textile blocks, the residents of which are recent migrants uneducated migrants from Anatolia, although the educated younger generations are starting to reshape Zeytinburnu thus making it an attractive place to be. 

Transportation

The municipality wanted to integrate this area with the rest of Istanbul
and improved the transportation options by extending the modern tramline to here and the main tram station is at the intersection of the Metro line that goes to Ataturk International Airport and Aksaray, and fast tramlines to Istanbul’s intercity bus station and to the old city of Eminonu.  Zeytinburnu also has a station on the Sirkeci - Halkali suburban railway line; this and other important projects have improved not only transportation but the quality of life and the economics of the whole area.  

Olivium Shopping Center

The modern shopping mall of the Olivium Outlet Center that opened in 2000 has cinemas and many of its shops specialise in factory surpluses which brought new shopping opportunities to the residents of Zeytinburnu, and surrounding neighbourhoods, it’s very popular and becomes extremely crowded on weekends.
