Areas designated for public use are shown shaded in brown on Jerusalem's urban master plan (brown areas).
The Jerusalem Municipality, through the ‘Eden’ Company, fosters projects throughout the city that include mixed usage (public and commercial), enabling more advantageous and efficient use of the land and promoting the construction of buildings for a variety of urban purposes.
Use of these areas can be divided into two main purposes:
A project for affordable, low-cost rental housing is planned as part of the Beit Ha’am Campus, adjacent to the Gerard Behar Auditorium. This will be carried out as part of the renovation and conversion of a section of the existing building and the addition of a number of floors.
The project encompasses 80 residential units of 1-2 rooms (studio apartments and two-person apartments) and public facilities for the residents’ use, such as a lobby, café, laundry room, etc.
A project for affordable, low-cost rental housing in the Triangle Lot, located in the area north of the junction between Ussishkin and Menorah Streets.
The proposed eight-story building will consist of 130 residential units of 1-2 rooms (studio apartments and two-person apartments) and public facilities for the residents’ use, such as a lobby, kindergarten, commercial premises, laundry room, etc.
The planned project is located on a 30,000 square meter plot of land east of Herzog Street, between the Rasco and Givat Mordechai neighborhoods, in the Jewish Youth Sports Center.
Currently, there are two low-density buildings of the Jewish Youth Sports Center in the lot’s southern section, in relation to the large potential of the land which may be used for construction on the site.
The proposed project would include the demolition of the existing youth center buildings and their replacement with a new, modern building, as well as new schools, a sports complex, an indoor swimming pool, underground parking and residential and commercial buildings.
