Ramat Shlomo Master Plan
21.5 hectares, 2,200 R. units
An urban planning project for a 17,000-residents ultra-orthodox neighborhood on a hill in Northeast Jerusalem.
In the present extension of the neighborhood additional 2,200 residential units are to be added to the existing neighborhood.
The main considerations of the plan are the young demographic – about 40% of the residents are 13-40 years old – that affects the housing requirements and the kind of public institutes needed; the topography: the neighborhood's epic center is 800 meters above sea level and the streets are aligned with the topography; and the natural and archaeological elements: a promenade with panoramic view and the terraced buildings that overlook the Ramot pine forest are well-integrated into the landscape.
