Described as “Turkey’s first vertical forest,” Greenox stands out from the urban landscape of Istanbul. With 900 trees covering the façade of the 16-floor high-rise residential building, Greenox takes its green building classification quite literally. The unique visual appeal of Greenox draws customers interested in living a sustainable lifestyle. Built with high-efficiency boilers for space heating and hot water, low-flow faucets in all kitchens and bathrooms and concrete filler floor slabs, Greenox helps residents lower their carbon footprint significantly and save utility costs. The building’s solar panels and gray water treatment and rainwater collection systems also contribute to its efficiency.
Greenox became a reality when two major real estate developers, Aycan Real Estate and Feres Gayrimenkul, combined to form Aycan-Feres Joint Venture. Greenox is the first project the new partnership has completed together. The unique residential building is located in the heart of the European side of Istanbul in close proximity to business, shopping and entertainment. Greenox contains 170 units consisting of one and two-bedroom apartments. Residents have access to outdoor spaces, a rooftop swimming pool and entertainment facilities. With many terraces to enjoy the outdoors, residents will be able to enjoy the natural appeal of Greenox.
Greenox has received final EDGE certification from thinkstep-SGS.
