ESTABLISHMENT and ACTIVITY
Build and sell dwelling production model, which started to be implemented in Turkey in the second half of 1960s, was going through a bottleneck in the second half 1970s. The fact that building stock in cities, which was to be demolished and re-built, had reduced, and demand for urban plot did not develop at expected speed, was the main reasons for this situation. Under these circumstances, large investment groups directed towards large scale housing projects outside cities.

However, the company was not operationalized considering the market conditions; later residential construction started with ELİN İnşaat ve Sanayi Ticaret A.Ş. founded in 1979.
