New mixed use Project approved for Katamon neighborhood of Jerusalem
The Jerusalem District Planning and Building Commission has approved a new mixed-use Project covering nearly 6 acres of land in the Katamon neighborhood of Jerusalem. The plan calls for 316 housing units in 6 high rise buildings with commercial and office space on the ground floors. 25% of the residential units will be small apartments.
The new project will be located on the axis of Ben Zakai Street, Maalei Zeev Street, and Ben Baba Street.
Jerusalem District planner Shira Talmi said, "The additional housing units are important for Jerusalem. The plan greatly improves the public space in the neighborhood, contributes a lot to development of the connection between the bordering neighborhoods, and increases the supply of open public space in the area."
