In July 2015, together with our partners Doğuș Holding and BLG, we entered into a conditional shareholders’ agreement to form a joint venture partnership, of which HSH has a 50% share, for a proposed hotel development in Istanbul, Turkey. 

The partners agreed to jointly develop the property with an investment commitment of approximately €300 million, of which HSH was responsible for 50% or approximately €150 million. 

Demolition on the project site began in June 2016 and despite unforeseen site conditions and challenges with the heritage building, good progress was made in 2017, with an expected completion date in mid 2020. There will be approximately 180 rooms, a ballroom with sweeping views of the Bosphorus, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, spa and a verdant garden on the waterfront. 

Istanbul is a beautiful historic city that embodies the meeting point of East and West, and the location of The Peninsula Istanbul on the Bosphorus is truly spectacular. The Peninsula Istanbul will form part of the wider Galataport project being developed by our partners, which incorporates a promenade, museums, art galleries, restaurants, boutiques, retail units, parks and public spaces for the local community as well as a cruise passenger terminal with global standards. Our partners have a long track record of investment in Turkey and share the same values of integrity and long-term commitment as HSH. We believe in the long-term future of Istanbul as one of the world’s prominent tourism destinations.
