This paper discusses the changing urban policy framework in Turkey through the analysis of a unique coupling of neoliberalism and Islamism. It explains that Turkey’s Justice and Development Party has successfully established networks of economic and political interdependence by appeasing both the emergent Islamic capitalist class through lucrative contracts and business-friendly reforms, and the urban poor through gestures ingrained in traditional Islamic community values and morality. The working of this co-articulation is examined in the case of an urban renewal project in a peripheral neighbourhood in Istanbul
