The Turkevi Center, An Important and Symbolic Addition to New York’s Skyline Officially Opens

Herrick, Feinstein LLP

Herrick has had the privilege of representing the Republic of Turkey in the development of the Turkevi Center, a landmark New York City mixed-use skyscraper that will serve as home to Turkey’s permanent mission to the United Nations and the Turkish Consulate General. This is the largest real estate project Turkey has outside of her borders. This symbolic skyscraper is rich in Turkish symbolism and reflects Turkish culture, history and diversity. The center sits across from the UN headquarters, and is set to become a center of Turkish culture in the United States. Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan spoke at the historic opening ceremony this week, which was also attended by many delegates from Turkey and the UN.

In the course of our multi-year representation, Herrick attorneys have advised on a spectrum of real estate matters including government relations, real estate development and construction, leasing, land use and zoning.
