Turkey launches Social Housing Campaign
Turkey has started the process of constructing 100,000 new low-cost housing units on Thursday.
The project that was unveiled by Turkish President Erdogan will include 100, 000 earthquake-resistant housing units reflecting traditional neighborhoods.
"We are starting the process of constructing 100,000 earthquake-resistant housing units reflecting traditional neighborhoods as part of our 2020 program,” Erdogan said.
Underlining that the construction of the buildings will be completed in one to one-and-half years at longest after laying the foundation as of New Year, Erdoğan added: "These housing projects will be designed in a way to reflect our traditional neighborhood culture with squares, mosques, schools, markets, recreational areas, green areas, facades and with all other features."
Meanwhile, Minister of Treasury and Finance of Turkey Berat Albayrak announced in a statement on Twitter that applications for 100 thousand social housing units would be received from December 15 through January 15. (ILKHA)
