A television tower in Çamlıca continues to rise despite warnings against the damage it will cause to İstanbul and objections from Turkey's Chamber of Architects.

The project was chosen by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan himself. The concrete structure of the building has now been completed, and the tower, which will have a height of 369 meters when it is over, is damaging the silhouette of Istanbul and the Bosphorus.

The Chamber of Architects had demanded the removal of the aerials that damage the Bosphorus silhouette and has asked for arrangements for the use of this region as a public space, emphasizing that the hill is the most important green part of Bosphorus.
