Location

The central entrance to the city, which joins Bat-Yam, Jaffa and Tel Aviv.

 

 

Municipal Project

The plan:
The area’s identity is shifting due to the pending arrival of the NTA (Metropolitan Mass Transit System) light-rail. Consequently, there is a focus on the expansion of local urban activity, both in terms of commerce and residence, and general improvement of the city's entrance, (including aesthetic qualities).
 

Implementation:
Basic changes have been completed, including laying and improving infrastructure and public lighting. This is stage one of the preparations for the light-rail.
 

 

Personality


The area was once the old center of the city. It is essentially mixed-use, hybridized urban tissue characterized by the combination of residences, stores and offices. Local stores are primarily low-cost. It is a highly active urban core, and is a major intersection between three major streets that run throughout the city. The area includes traces of local history, such as the old cinema, now in disuse and disrepair, of which only the the parking lot remains in use.
