The connection between the geographical periphery and other areas of the country is critical to both occupation and various living considerations. By combining accessible transportation with affordable living and commercial spaces, social-geographic gaps can be addressed and minimized. This project corresponds to the local authority’s intentions and plans to drive urban renewal in areas that were considered in the past as marginal and derelict, and which are now being revived and bettered.
Our unique construction project will be located between the train station and “Derekh Ha’darom” street in Kiryat Gat, which greatly influenced its conceptualization. The food manufacturing facility currently located is set for demolition and instead a complex combining living, office and commercial spaces will be built.
Relatively smaller living spaces were designed to answer the needs of small family units (bachelors, divorcees, pensioners, roommates or small families). They will appeal to those searching for affordable living and to whom proximity to the train station is in fact an advantage.
Over 350 affordable apartments, no larger than 60 sq.m for small family units, will be built. The apartments are divided between two types of buildings: 3 high-rise apartment buildings up to 22 floors each with commercial and office spaces located in the two ground floors, and terraced buildings that are to be integrated into a main square.
The commercial area will be accessible to arrivals from the railway station as well as from the city center.
The project is a part of Kiryat Gat’s urban rejuvenation plan and is built according to green building principles.
