Konak Pier Shopping Mall

The mall was built in 1888 on the seafront, 500 meters away from the current Konak Atatürk Square. It was built using the masonry stone method and its facade was covered with plaster. Support system is used for the roof design. Although the building was previously used as a custom building, it was transformed into a fish market in the 1960s and continued this service until 1987.It was used as an office by ESHOT in the first half of the 1990s. Konak Pier attained its present appearance and activity as a shopping mall with its restoration between 1996-2002. Recently, the building has been tried to be associated with the famous French architect of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, Gustav Eiffel, considering the construction technique, However no document regarding this has yet been reached.
