Damasturk Realty , as always, provides you with all the relevant information on the most important aspects of all the various types of apartments in Turkey . This article will focus on apartments for sale in Istanbul that are close to the tramway; the benefits of these apartments; the innovation of the tram; Istanbul's tram lines; and much more.

The tram in Istanbul: an overview

By definition, a tramway is a set of rails laid on the surface of a road for trams to travel along, while a tram is a public transport vehicle, usually powered by electricity from wires above it, that travels along rails laid on the surface of a street. It is one of the transportation options offered by railroads, and unlike metros, which go through underground tunnels and occasionally alternate between the interior of the earth and the surface of the ground, as do the majority of Istanbul's metros, the tram’s course is superficial, that is, above the ground.

People utilize Istanbul's tramway system, which has stops above ground, to go to their desired destinations. Because of its concentration in Istanbul's lanes and ancient areas like Sultanahmet, Bayezid, Eminönü, and other neighborhoods, the tram is an appealing mode of transportation for tourists.

The tramway in Istanbul has a 105-year history, dating back to 1871, when the city's network of horse-drawn carriages first connected the "Izab Kapi" and "Besiktas" neighborhoods. In 1914, the city opened its first electric-powered tram line, which traveled from Taksim Square through Istiklal Street to the Beyoğlu neighborhood, which is well-known both locally and internationally.

The tramway lines in Istanbul

To look for apartments for sale in Istanbul near the tramway, you must first be familiar with all of the tramway lines in the city, and then conduct a search between the neighborhoods through which these lines run and select the best ones in each. Only then you can select the apartments that fit your taste and preferences.

As of right now, Istanbul has four tramways—three on the European side and one on the Asian side. Let's get to know each of them:

  1. The most-used Bağcılar-Kabataş Tramway Line T1 Kabataş-Bağcılar

This tram line is the oldest tramway in Istanbul and was founded in 1992 before being expanded in 2005. It depends on traveling through the most popular tourist destinations in the city's center, including the Sultan Ahmed Mosque, the Hagia Sophia Mosque, the Beyazıt Covered Market with the Eminönü Bridge, and Karakoy, before continuing on to Kabataş in Beyoğlu, close to the well-known Istiklal Street in Taksim.

This tramway, which has 92 trams in total and 31 stops, transports up to 320,000 passengers each day over its 19.3-kilometer route in 65 minutes from beginning to end.

  1. The Kadıköy-Moda Tramway Line T3 Kadıköy-Moda

In March 2003, this tramway was launched. Over its 2.6-kilometer route, this tramway, which has 5 trams and 11 stops, transports up to 5000 passengers every day, with a journey taking 20 minutes.

  1. The Topkapı Tramway line - Masjid Al-Salam T4 Topkapı - Mescid-i Selam

It was established in 2007 and later expanded to include Topkapı in 2009. The purpose of this line was to relieve congestion on public transit, particularly in the Sultangazi and Gaziosmanpaşa neighborhoods. Indeed, once the line was created, life in these places changed dramatically and became different, and several significant projects and retail malls were established, most notably the well-known Phenicia Mall.

This 15.3-kilometer-long tramway, with a total of 83 trams and 22 stations, transports up to 190,000 passengers each day, taking 45 minutes to complete the trip.

  1. Eminönü - Alibeyköy Tramway Line T5 Eminönü – Alibeyköy

This tramway was founded in Jan 2021, and it is the most recent of all the lines we have discussed. As a result, it contains features not present in any other line, the most significant of which is providing the tram with electricity through the rails that the tram travels over, as opposed to other lines, which accomplish this via cables and lines through rails placed above.

This tramway transports up to 90,000 passengers each day along its 10.10-kilometer route, which it covers with a total of 8 trams and 14 stops in trips that last 30 minutes.

The ground power supply in this tramway has undoubtedly contributed to the elimination of visual pollution above the tramway as well as to current technology's ability to be both ecologically benign and environmentally friendly. Another characteristic of this tramway is its alignment with the line to one of Istanbul's most prominent tourist sites, the appealing and gorgeous Golden Horn Bay.

The Marmara Sea ends at the Gulf of the Golden Horn, which may be seen from the Sultan Eyup region. It may be appreciated by taking the cable car near the Sultan Eyup Mosque, then stopping at the renowned Pierre Loti Café at the top of the hill in the Sultan Eyup neighborhood to have coffee or tea while taking in the Gulf's stunning scenery, the beauty that is never depleted.

Advantages of investing in apartments for sale in Istanbul near the tramway

Apartments for sale near the tramway in Istanbul have a number of benefits and advantages. Here are the most important of them:

  • The proximity to rapid transportation always increases the value and prices of apartments with their investment returns

The closeness to quick transit, such as the tram, metro, and metrobus, is one of the most significant elements that increases the value of real estate and residences of all types. As a result, the construction companies' targeting of these areas is not fruitless but rather a wise investment since this would undoubtedly increase the value and raise the cost of the units in the developments.

As a result, choosing apartments for sale in Istanbul near the tramway is the best and most appropriate option to retain the value of these apartments. You can also invest in these apartments by holding onto them for a long time and then reselling them, or you can rent them out for three years before flipping them, in which case the investment return would be undoubtedly significant.

  • Easy access to the city center

One of the most significant advantages is the ease of access to Istanbul's center. Since all of the aforementioned tramway types pass through the heart of Istanbul's city center, the owners of the apartment situated outside of the city center, yet close to a tramway, would undoubtedly enjoy quick, comfortable, and easy access to the city center.
