The Göç İdaresi Genel Müdürlüğü (Directorate General of Migration Management, or DGMM) office is where you apply for your residence permit.
It is next to a Noter (Notary Public) which has signs posted to make it easy to find it. So look for red signs (with white letters) which point you to the "5. Noter."
It is open from 7:00 AM to 12:00 Noon, and from 1:00 PM to 5:30 PM.
