The Jerusalem Municipality has approved plans for mixed-use "Pyramid Tower" designed by Studio Libeskind. A collaboration with local architect Yigal Levi, the tapered tower will rise 105-meters in the heart of the city, adjacent to Mahane Yehuda market - commonly known as "The Shuk". Its form, said to reference "Jerusalem’s existing architectural language," is designed to allow maximum light to the public plaza below. A geometric pattern of Jerusalem stone and glass will adorn the facade, while its arched colonnade connects the tower's ground floor shopping arcade to the surrounding open space.

“The Pyramid mediates between ancient traditions and myths, while providing a 21st century reinterpretation of that great form,” said Daniel Libeskind. “The design complements the context and gives the neighborhood a vibrant public space in the heart of the ancient city.”

The 26-story tower will feature 200 apartments, a boutique hotel, a public plaza lined with shops, and a roof-top observatory and restaurant once complete in 2019.
