Building Hanging After Landslide Collapses in Istanbul

641 ratings | 395706 views
The earth underneath a building in Istanbul's Beyoğlu district was washed away early Tuesday as the retaining wall of a nearby construction site collapsed amid heavy rainfall, leaving the building hanging on a cliff. Police and firefighter units evacuated the four-story building and two adjacent buildings in Sütlüce neighborhood and cordoned off the area. The building collapsed on mid-Tuesday before a large crowd of onlookers, officials and television crews, which broadcast live the moment of collapse. Beyoğlu Mayor Ahmet Misbah Demircan told reporters that the building was built illegally in 1994 and it had no construction license or occupancy permit and had problems with its foundation. It is unclear why authorities did not take action on the building to this date, but such instances are common in Istanbul and other cities throughout Turkey. Locals told several newspapers that they have warned construction officials of cracks in their buildings. Meanwhile, Turkish media outlets reported that the nearby construction site of a hotel belongs to renowned Turkish international footballer Arda Turan and his brother. Turan reportedly bought the land adjacent to the collapsed building for $4 million in 2017 in the area overlooking the Golden Horn, which has experienced rapid development in the last decade.

Why? Seems like bad planning on the construction company's part. The residents were evacuated.

No wonder why many buildings collapse during moderate earthquakes in Turkey :/

This is actually the 2nd video from the site. Originally there was a retaining wall/foundation/something similar at the site that was poor quality and poorly reinforced. After some rain, the foundation and its reinforcement give out and collapsed, leaving this building on the unstable edge of the hole.

This collapse was NOT the result of a simple landslide. There is another video showing what happened prior to this but the original FB post seems to have been removed. I did manage to find a copy here:.https://rumble.com/v62aup-construction-retaining-wall-collapses-in-beyoglu-istanbul.html

This isn't a landslide. Some idiots took down the building next to it and the foundation collapsed https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fl6xY86_60I

Not often you get to see a building's foundation while it's still standing... it's going to be an interesting insurance claim...
hebneh (6 months ago)
And as can easily be seen, there wasn't much to this particular foundation.
shades2 (8 months ago)
Apparently what happened is, they didn't quite dig under the wall, but heavy rainfall under-mined it's footings. Their mistake was not anticipating that, and having any proper drainage setup or temporary support structures. The collapse of that huge wall led to the further collapse of the unstable hillside,and the set of flats with the exposed foundation just followed. Most of these structures don't appear to have been built to a decent code requirement, and the entire job was poorly planned and handled. A geological survey might have indicated that the flats needed piles put in for stability in that terrible soil, not 1m deep footings.

Rodrigo Castillo (9 months ago)
Ahí dice que ese edificio fue construido sin permiso de edificación. Ahora mi análisis. Creo, aunque hubiera tenido buenas fundaciones, éste se hubiera caído igual, ya que el suelo debajo de éste, se había deslizado producto de que al lado del sitio había una excavación muy profunda y que los muros de contención de esta excavación, eran bastante débiles, por lo que pude apreciar en otro video en Linkedin, de la construcción de un nuevo hotel. La verdad es que acá culpan a las lluvias, pero mirando el otro video (yo vi primero el otro video y quise saber qué había ocurrido con este edificio que había quedado colgando producto del derrumbe del muro de contención de juguete). Los muros estaban afirmados con unos tubos de unas 8 a 10 pulgadas de diámetro que se torcieron como pajitas de bebida con el peso que estaban soportando. También en esta noticia culpan a las intensas lluvias, pero en otro video que es anterior, el suelo se ve bastante seco y sin muestras de "intensas lluvias"
