Maslak is the region, where upper-price segment index value increased most. We see Kozyatağı as the region, where lower price segment increased most in last five years. Especially, newly built office areas, which are close to the metro networks, create competition. And, we can say that these areas will give acceleration to the index development dynamics, regionally.
