The tallest building in Israel is being planned for a site on the border between Tel Aviv and Ramat Gan, Globes reported Tuesday.

The 100-floor structure was approved by the Tel Aviv District Planning and Building Committee for construction on a 2.75-acre plot near the entry ramp to the Ayalon Highway adjacent to the Tel Aviv Central Savidor Station. The public will soon be invited to state objections.

The building will contain offices, hotels and commercial firms.

The plan, called “Between the Cities” because of its location on the seam between Tel Aviv and Ramat Gan, originally envisioned only 75 floors. Subsequently, city planners accepted the recommendation of Tel Aviv city engineer Oded Gvuli to raise it to 100 floors. Amnon Schwartz Architects have been tapped for the prestigious project.
