Cadde54 Bazaar: Relaunching urban life after the pandemic
Revitalising urban life has become particularly important in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. Shopping centres create jobs and businesses by providing useful goods and services, but they can also energize a neighbourhood and give it a unique identity.

That was the ambition of the "Cadde54 Bazaar Project" in Serdivan, a city of 160,000 people in northwest Turkey. Cadde54 combines the logic of a Turkish bazaar with cultural and social functions. Visitors can walk around several open-air plazas or spend time in cafes where they can taste local and international cuisine.

It is noteworthy that Cadde54 Bazaar's launch coincided with the post-pandemic period. Lockdowns and the closing of public buildings left people longing to spend time in open spaces. Unlike indoor shopping centres, at Cadde54 visitors can walk in the open air in pleasant and healthy conditions.

The project has led to the creation of new office spaces, businesses and jobs. The centre brings together, for the first time in Sakarya Province, local tradesmen and world-class companies under the same roof.

Cadde54 Bazaar also contributes to a healthy and sustainable lifestyle. The centre features a vegetation-rich green roof and greywater recycling to limit environmental impact. The area is pedestrianised and features a sports centre. The project has also included the creation of new accommodation in the area.

​The project, completed in April 2022, received 1.5 billion Turkish lira (82 million euros) in investments from the municipality.
