One building is on the Lieber compound, the second on Rothschild Blvd., and the third on Hamasger St. in the commercial district.
Tel Aviv will get three more skyscrapers: one on the Lieber compound on the border of the southern neighborhoods of Florentin and Neve Tzedek; the second on Rothschild Boulevard; and the third on Hamasger Street in the commercial district.
The National Planning and Building Commission yesterday dismissed a petition by the Tel Aviv Local Planning and Building Commission against the request by Intercolony Investments Ltd. (formerly American Colony) to rezone the Lieber lot to mixed residential, commercial and industrial use, including 150 apartments.
Tel Aviv Local Planning and Building Commission Doron Sapir said, "It's a shame that the National Planning Commission chose to reject the Local Commission's appeal. To accept residences as use on a mass-transit route is a waste of public money."
Yesterday, the Tel Aviv Regional Planning and Building Commission approved the Aviv on Rothschild project of Aviv & Co., and increased the building's height to 30 floors from 21.
The Tel Aviv Regional Planning and Building Commission also accepted for deposit for the 20-storey Beit Ozeri project by Achim Ozeri Ltd. The project is planned as a green building.
