A Tel Aviv municipal committee has given the green light to the construction of a 100-story tower in the city.
The Bein Arim Tower will be the tallest skyscraper in the country when it is completed, the business daily Globes reported.
The Tel Aviv District Planning and Building Commission voted on Monday to approve the building, which will be located close to the city’s Savidor train station next to the Ayalon freeway.
Bein Arim translates to “Between the cities.”
Plans for the site, which is owned by the municipality and currently used as a parking lot, include 120,000 square meters (1.6 million square feet) of space for offices, stores and public areas, according to Globes. The top 15 stories will be a hotel.
