So, the Habitation Yazıcı today represents a living example of an important milestone of transition from traditional mansions to modern apartments.
Along the street, one may today see a lot of apartments of historic importance, (namely Kamondo, Yusuf İzzettin, Hacı Said, Salomon Asseo, Levi, Elias Braunstein, M. Dikeos, Louis Agostini, Carlo Amancich and Zellich apartments, etc.) virtually all of them being erected at the end of the 19th century.
The Serdar-ı Ekrem Street, which contained the tallest and biggest apartments of İstanbul at the end of the 19th century, is today regarded as the most valuable street of whole Galata and Beyoğlu district. During the past decade, the area witnessed a tremendous revival in the extent of its cultural activities and the vigour of its nightlife.
