Radisson Hospitality AB, part of Radisson Hotel Group, has signed a deal to open the Radisson Residences Avrupa Tem İstanbul in Turkey. The 140-apartment residence will be located within the Avrupa Tem Residential Complex and will open before the end of this year following a partial renovation of the existing Avrupa Residence Suites.

“We see a positive growth trend in the hospitality industry in Turkey,” said Elie Younes, EVP/chief development officer, Radisson Hotel Group. “Following the first residence project under the Radisson brand, we are delighted to bring another excellent property to Istanbul.” 

The property boosts the company's presence to 16 properties in Istanbul, following openings in in Kayseri five years ago and Vadistanbul earlier this year. In February, the company signed a deal to open the Radisson Hotel Bursa in Q4 2020, marking the brand's debut in Turkey.
