The Israeli Finance Ministry’s district committee has approved plans for the 400-m-tall, 100-story “Tower Between Cities,” which, when completed, will surpass Moshe Aviv Tower as Israel’s tallest skyscraper, jns.org reports. Miloslavsky architects began planning the supertall building in 2014. In approving the plan, the committee also accepted a recommendation from Tel Aviv’s city engineer, Oded Gvuli, to allow the tower’s footprint to cover more than 166,500 m2 (546,000 sq. ft.). “A building such as this has yet to be built in Israel,” Gvuli said. The tower will feature 24 elevators and will include offices, public spaces and hotel rooms. It will be situated on the edge of Ramat Gan, Israel’s diamond district and business center. Completion is expected in 2023.
