The pedestrianization of Istanbul's historic peninsula

Istanbul's Historic Peninsula, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, has been compromised by rapid and uncontrolled urban growth. In order to restore public space and revitalize the city center, Istanbul pedestrianized over 250 streets between 2010 and 2012. Involved in the project throughout, EMBARQ Turkey has compiled this report the impacts of the pedestrianization on local businesses and stakeholders.
