Jerusalem Municipality approves major luxury residential tower, hotel adjacent to shuk

The Jerusalem Municipality has approved plans for a sprawling 26-story luxury hi-rise residential building adjacent to the Mahane Yehuda market, featuring hotel space, high-end retail shops, and a rooftop fine dining restaurant.

The complex, called the “Freedom Pyramid,” is being designed by celebrated Polish-born architect Daniel Libeskind, in coordination with Israeli architect Yigal Levi, and will be built over the former Eden Theater.

The 105-meter tall building will be constructed with equal parts glass and Jerusalem stone, include 35,000-square-meters of space, and contain 200 luxury apartments, a boutique hotel, and outdoor public plaza lined with upscale shops, the municipality said.
