An 840-foot skyscraper, the largest residential tower in the Middle East, will rise in the Greater Tel Aviv area, the Azorim Development and Investment Company announced Thursday.
Construction on the 65-floor complex, which will include an observatory, will begin soon on the site located in Ramat Gan, an upscale city adjacent to Tel Aviv.
The building will be one foot lower than the U.S. Steel tower, Pittsburgh’s tallest building, and 27 feet higher than One Chase Manhattan Plaza in New York City.
