A plot of 1,200×2 = 2,400 square meters and a plot of 2,400 / 480 = 5 storeys in a place with precedence in precedence 2 means that a 2.400 / 720 = 3.3 storey building can be built due to the new TASK session. “Nazmi Durbakayım said that with the new regulation, “In order to achieve harmony between the buildings according to the features of the municipalities and the surrounding area, it will be possible to determine the material and color of the roof with exterior paints and coatings in order to obtain a beautiful appearance.
