    Can Donald Trump build a hotel or a condo in the middle of central park?
    Would you let that happen?
    From rainforests to urban forests..
    When are you going to realize that it is not a solution when you destroy the natural life and native lands of a city and build concrete blocks over it?
    Well, a terrible future will take place in the city of Istanbul where Ali Agaoglu, one of the emerging monsters of new construction projects in Istanbul is killing centuries old forests to construct a 320.000 square meter building complex by cutting centuries old trees and disrupting natural life in Istanbul. it is stated that Arab sheiks already bought couple of towers from the same complex.
    Who will stop this monster?
    google “maslak 1453” you will see and hopefully do something before it is too late..
