[ From the Media ]

SETimes recently ran an article about the planned twin Dubai Towers (150m) for the Maslak area in Istanbul's northern periphery busy with similar projects ("Mashattan" etc.). According to analysts, the prospect of Turkey becoming the first Muslim state to enter the EU has prompted a surge of interest among Arab investors. For those reading Turkish, the weekly newspaper digest of the TAYProject is also a good source for up-to-date information on matters of preservation and urban development in Turkey.

In other news on SETimes we learn that the northern city of Kumanovo has been designated "Macedonia's Cultural Centre" for 2006.
