A large area in the very center of the city, the
district abuts to three main arteries, namely
Yoseftal, Nissenbauim and Komemiyut (all of
which are included as possible Biennale sites).
A "face-lift" for the whole zone, including
resurfacing and re-lighting. The zone will also
be redefined in terms of statutory allowance to
include residences. new cultural activity is
planned, with a focus on nightlife.
Resurfacing scheduled for 2010.
Once a micro-industry center, the zone has now
deteriorated and is characterized by
supermarkets, garages and is essentially a
run-down island marring the center of the city.
