The US spy scandal goes from bad to worse according to a Yediot Achronot report that says the US rented an apartment across the street from then Defense Minister Barak, apparently to spy on him.
The apartment housed a single US Marine, whom Israeli Intelligence noted in 2007 had brought in an unusually large amount of electronic equipment into his apartment. The US claims the marine was simply an embassy guard.
In light of all the spying the US has been doing on Israel, Israeli officials have been calling for the release of Jonathan Pollard.Jewish Press News Briefs
Dizengoff Trade has announced the sale of a 280 sq. meter apartment with an additional 60 sq. meter veranda for the record price of NIS 8.58 mil.
The apartment is located on the 30th floor of the first tower being built as part of the LAGOON Complex, which combines tourism and residential facilities in a single compound and is located in the Net-600 neighborhood along Netanya’s southern beach.
The apartment was sold to a new immigrant from France; more than 87 units have been sold so far.
Based on Israeli tax authority data, the deal signed for the LAGOON unit broke a previous record held since June – a 200 sq. meter apartment on the 21st floor (of 22) that was sold for NIS 6.71 mil.
Dizengoff Trade Marketing Manager, Hanan Segal says, “The city of Netanya is constantly breaking its own residential price records. On one hand, demand is rising while supply is diminishing, on the other, especially for projects situated along the coast line. In 2012, the number of construction starts was 1,214 units, as opposed to 99 in the first quarter of this current year.” Segal adds that “The city of Netanya and its unique coastline have become a viable alternative to Tel Aviv. We are experiencing a migration of well-established residents in their late 40s, who have achieved their professional goals and whose children are grown up; they are now free to focus on attaining a quality of life that they had been dreaming about all those years.” The LAGOON Complex covers an area of nearly 9 acres and includes 2 luxury towers – one which is 34 stories high (153 units) and the other – 37 (167 units) for a total of 320 residential units plus a luxury hotel.
The complex includes a lush expansive park, underground parking for each building, security, a gym, a private outside pool for each tower, an events hall, a café, a boutiques avenue, and jogging paths. An adjoining bridge will provide access to the beach and the Netanya Promenade, which recently won the coveted Israel Realization designers prize, alongside an inspirational Sculpture Park.
The LAGOON project is being marketed by Remax.
