HaNurit Street, Jerusalem- urban renewal

Client: Jerusalem Municipality, Moriah Jerusalem Development Corporation
Project Initiation: 2015
Location: Jerusalem
Project Area: 75 dunam
Status: Planning
Program: The program proposes 2,340 residential units in place of the 670 existing units
Planning Team: Ari Cohen, Yael Gold, Avi Lindenbaum

The feasibility study was commissioned in accordance with the municipal policy, as set out in the Yuvalim-Ganim Strategic Plan, that defines the Nurit area as an area slated for urban regeneration.

The planning proposal must meet a variety of criteria: economic viability; implementation stages; the creation of a successful urban space and finding traffic solutions.

The plan deals with a compound in a very poor state of maintenance – one of the worst in the city. Alongside the desire to renew and improve the quality of life for the residents, the program must meet economic viability standards. The balance between these requirements is expressed in the plan proposal, which proposes high-rise buildings with significant and continuous open spaces between buildings. In this program, the first in Jerusalem, the possibility of using complementary land is being examined in order to contribute to the reduction of future residential density in the compound
