Location

Northern section of Balfur St, Bat-Yam's main North-South route.

 

 

Municipal Project

The plan:
Revival of the street through physical improvement and commercial and cultural development. Creation of points of interest along the length of the street to improve passage through.
 

Implementation:
Basic changes have been completed, including repaving the road and sidewalk.
 

 

Personality


The street is one of Bat-Yam's main transit routes as well as a central commerce center. A mixed-use urban area that merges commerce and residence, the street’s architecture is characterized by back-set storefronts on the street level, which creates shaded passages and pauses below the residential buildings above. The area includes a neglected, empty public structure at the intersection between Balfur and Rothschild that is open for intervention.
 

 

Documents


Urban master plan in process that will permit addition of two stories to the street's buildings and for expansion of commerce.
