Historic German consulate building in İzmir up for sale
İZMİR – Anadolu AgencyGermany’s consulate-general to Turkey’s Aegean province of İzmir has started collecting bids to sell its former historic building, where it resided 82 years.
The mission had evacuated the building in İzmir’s central Kordon neighborhood and moved to the new facility in Balçova in 2007.
The stone building had served as the consulate-general building since July 14, 1925.
The bidding process for the old building will close at the end of January, the consulate said in a statement, noting the minimum bid would stand at 3.2 million euros.
The sealed tender will take place in the absence of the bidders.
The initial “Old City Chateau” was built in the 1890s while a second section, named Part B, was built in 1925, increasing the total area of the plot to 562 square meters. The total usage space of the building is 1,200 square meters.
Bidders should make online reservations to observe the building.
