Atacorner Lüleburgaz is located on the main artery from Istanbul and at the edge of an existing urban fabric. Building plot is faced both to the main artery and the urban edge has a setback distance varying between 10 and 25 meters. Although this situation seems to be an obstacle for accessing the building, but a significant urban void has been produced as a result.
