Tel Aviv, Israel—Tel Aviv’s Bavli neighborhood will be home to a large-scale residential project. The Bavli Towers, comprised of six 44-story towers, are designed by Gal Nauer Architects (GNA), an international architecture firm with offices in New York and Tel Aviv.
Held by the real estate group of Diur, Amtash and Elad-Israel Group, the residential units will be developed on a landscaped plateau that will blend with Ha’Yarkon Park, Tel Aviv’s “Central Park,” and will contain 880 condominium residences, ranging from 1,100 to 5,000 square feet.
Encompassing about 27 acres, the multifamily complex will feature extensive amenities: an outdoor swimming pool, extensive landscaped area, a fitness center, a lobby lounge and panoramic views. In addition, because of Bavli’s proximity to the city center, residents will be within walking distance of major public transportation, shops, cafes and public community areas.
In a statement, Gal Nauer, founder and president of Gal Nauer Architects, describes the towers as having all the qualities of a private home, a powerful connection to the neighborhood and a true sense of community. Nauer emphasizes the importance of these traits as vital for a residential design, explaining that they represent the benchmark for a new generation of architecture and a new standard of modern living.
GNA prioritized the implementation of the latest innovations in architecture, green technology and interior design, hoping to deliver one of the most advanced developments in Tel Aviv. The construction is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2011, with the completion of the first tower anticipated for 2013.
By focusing on environmental impact, by allowing underground-only access for vehicles and by enforcing various other green technologies, the complex will seek LEED certification upon completion. “As one of the largest green initiatives for Tel-Aviv and the 21st Century, the Bavli Towers will attract a diverse population seeking an urban lifestyle in an environmentally forward-looking community,” adds Nauer.
