The construction site of the third Bosphorus bridge linking the European and Asian sides of Istanbul is seen (rear) as a vessel sets sail January 7, 2014. Look closely on a clear day, and the silhouette of Istanbul's historic peninsula, its minarets puncturing the sky, has changed for the first time in centuries. Construction lies close to Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan's heart: vast real estate projects showcase Turkey's rising prosperity and serve as a vehicle for spreading wealth. They generate jobs and - alongside penthouses for the rich - low-cost housing for poorer voters he hopes will show loyalty at the ballot box. But that rush for development has become the biggest threat yet to Erdogan's 11-year rule. Picture taken January 7, 2014.
