Ariel Rosenberg 12 Mar 08 (Globes Online)

The skyscraper fever now sweeping Tel Aviv is now heading south to neighboring Bat Yam. Last week, an executive committee, consisting of the mayor of Bat Yam, the chief executive, and a select group of council members, approved the building by the The Mizrahi Group of the City Center project, comprising three skyscrapers, the tallest of which is 50-storeys (160 meters) high. The Bat Yam has forwarded the plan to the Central Regional Planning and Building Commission for approval.

The towers in the City Center complex will consist of two buildings with 324 apartments in 38 floors and a third 50-floor block with 50,000 square meters of space for commerce, offices, and roof observatory. Also included in the plans is a two-storey shopping mall at the project's entrance. Total sales from the project are expected to be just short of the NIS 1 billion mark, at NIS 950 million.
