The coastal city of Ashkelon is set to embark on a major reconstruction program that will overhaul the exterior of one of its oldest neighborhoods and expand housing availability.

Israel’s High Speed ​​Construction Approval Board (Vatmal) last week Program reconstruction Allows demolition and reconstruction of older properties using the established Pinui-Binui Urban Renewal Framework. The plan covers most of the Givat Zion district in southeastern Ashkelon and its surrounding areas.

The proposal was jointly developed by Ashkelon’s urban planners and the central government’s Urban Renaissance Department in collaboration with existing communities. They include the city’s supplemental budget to support infrastructure development through rebuilding zones.

The area covers 56 dunums (13.8 acres) and currently has 132 residential units in four-story buildings in Givat Zion, one of Ashkelon’s oldest areas. The new plans include the creation of 927 new housing units, the majority (558) of which are on new land.

The restructuring program combines styles by combining both low-rise and high-rise buildings, public spaces, commercial areas, bike paths and new road networks.

The mayor of Ashkelon, Beni Baknin, said in a statement that the plan “will transform the oldest part of Givat Zion to provide a new, advanced and well-maintained living space.”
