Location

Located on the north-west border of Bat-Yam, where the city meets Jaffa. 

 

 

Municipal Project

The plan:
To address the join between the Bat-Yam and Jaffa beaches, and attend to the north-west entrance to the city, focusing on both access to the beach and the connection between Bat-Yam and Jaffa.
 

Implementation:
A new road has been paved, including a bicycle route, along with a pedestrian boardwalk and parking. A sewage pumping station is planned.

 

Personality


The municipal plan in a way isolates the area it addresses, in that surrounding roads, buildings and open spaces have been left out of the development plan. the focus on a specific zone has disconnected the local residential buildings and access roads to the beach from the addressed area. The site’s proximity to Jaffa is central to its identity, specifically the abrupt transition between the two. Located on a 10-meter (roughly 35 feet) high cliff above the beach itself, the area overlooks an underwater nature reserve. The beach itself is considered marginal and is mostly uncared for. Many underdeveloped, neglected public spaces exist in the area which are free for intervention, as the municipality holds no plans for them, including a local neglected Naval Center adjacent to cared for area.
