The 100-floor Intercity Tower, measuring 400 metres in height, has been granted planning approval. The new tower upon completion is set to become the tallest building in Israel, stripping the Moshe Aviv Tower of that designation.

Planned by Miloslavsky Architects, the ambitious initiative began in June 2014 and has now been officially approved by the Israeli Finance Ministry’s district committee. The committee accepted both the construction plan and a recommendation by Tel Aviv’s city engineer, Oded Gvuli, to allow the tower to cover more than 166,500 square metres at its base.

The colossal skyscraper will not include residential apartments but will house offices, public spaces, and hotel rooms. It will also feature 24 high-speed elevators to accommodate the heavy load of visitors and workers.

The tower, which will be built on the edge of Ramat Gan, Israel’s bustling diamond district and business centre, is expected to be completed in 2023.
