The Tel Aviv District Planning and Building Committee approved the building, which is to be called “Between the Cities” and will straddle the border of Tel Aviv and Ramat Gan.
Plans were drawn up by Amnon Schwartz of Miloslavsky Architects.
The bottom two floors will contain stores. There will be five stories for public use and 71 floors of offices. The top 15 stories will be a hotel. In total it will have over 150,000 square meters (1.6 million square feet) of floor space.
The 400-meter high tower will be built next to Central Savidor railway station, just off the Ayalon Highway. The land, owned by the Tel Aviv municipality, is currently used as a parking lot.
