The Aqua Florya Shopping and Lifestyle Center features a brand new concept that rewrites the definition of a shopping center. Combining entertainment and outstanding shopping, the key to Aqua Florya Shopping and Lifestyle Center's appeal is that it is home to the world's largest thematic aquarium, the Istanbul Aquarium. Another distinctive selling point is restaurants and cafes that not only serve cuisines from around the world, but also feature breathtaking sea views.

Aqua Florya has 45,000 square meters (484,375 sq.ft.) of total gross leasable area and features an outstanding store mix along with a 900-person open-air amphitheater, 11 cinemas with a total of 1,280 seats, 52,000 square meters (12.8 acres) of landscaped grounds and walking paths, a 13,000 square meter (3.2 acre) central square and an outdoor market area. The Aqua Florya Shopping and Lifestyle Center has been welcoming visitors since October 2012.
