Eyup, where a legend was born. Named after Abu Aytyub al-Ansari, or Eyup Sultan in Turkey, Eyup Sultan was one of the first to attempt to conquer Istanbul, coming exceptionally close to the old Byzance walls of Istanbul. Eyup Sultan's remains lie at the Eyup Sultan Mosque, built many centuries ago, it still stands today, and is a must see for any tourist to Istanbul.
The district of Eyup is huge, spanning from the historic walls of Istanbul, all the way to the Black Sea in the north. Hence the region varies hugely, from run down factories and warehouses, to modern and luxury apartment residences. The centrally located Dugmeciler neighbourhood is the most modernised, with other locations still suffering from emtpy warehouses and factories awaiting their fate. Eyup's conversion from industrial to residential will complete by 2023, at which point it will become one of Istanbul's most desirable districts.
Eyup is traditionally Istanbul's workhorse, with factories and warehouses all over the region. Low quality housing stock rose to support this industry, and as a result Eyup has suffered. The government has already spent billions on converting the neighbourhood, having built major road tunnels and rail links. This will continue, with three rail lines currently under construction - the Golden horn tramline, the M7 metro to central Istanbul, and the Vezneciler metro, which will again link the region for a third time to the historic peninsula.
These investments bring with them private investment, and empty industrial estates are being bought up by the big developers of Istanbul. The key is to research these new transport corridors and be near these - this is what Turks will demand once Eyup completes is conversion from Industrial to residential neighbourhood by 2023.
Gokturk is also technically part of Eyup, but is incredibly wealthy. It is home to large mansions and as a result distorts the statistics for Eyup significantly. Hence Eyup shows a huge range of people from working class, to elite upper class, mega rich.
