During the last two decades, Istanbul’s socio-cultural and urban identities have been undergoing radical transformation. Globalization, internationalization and the rapid flow of information, as the case in the rest of the world, have played a significant role in changing the city and her people. The multi-dimensional outcomes of this transformation have manifested themselves through the peculiarities of activity patterns, behavioral relationships, social and cultural norms, as well as architectural and urban patterns. Process of economic and social change that occurs in our country and all over the world requires to, continuously, define urbanization and housing problems in the light of this change. In this context, it is essential to focus on the subject of quality of environment in newly formed urban areas. In the process of quality search in urban environment and especially in housing environment it is necessary to identify which objective determines the “of good quality environment“. Based on these above arguments, article aims to analyze and discuss the transformation in the new housing developments in Istanbul in the context of quality of life issues. The article, which consists of five sections, has two three sections besides the introduction and conclusion.
