Especially in a chaotic city where a grid can not be applied due to the speed of planning and topographical difficulties hill tops become very important. Here, the hill tops are mapped with the information for the districts they belong to and how high they rich in comparison to each other. The higher points are more valuable for the commercial or office buildings. Some shopping malls and offices take advantage of this rule either consciously or by accident.
There are 58 hill tops in Şişli district. When they are ranked from the highest to lowest, Akmerkez at G7 - Akmerkez district comes second in order. This is a very clever investment done in 90's in Turkey for the most prestigious shopping mall of its time. Still the building is visible due to its very valuable location and especially for a commercial building this is incredibly important.
