More than 3,000 new homes approved for Jerusalem

The Jerusalem District Planning and Building Commission has approved on deposit the addition of more than 3,000 new homes for Jerusalem in two neighborhoods – Givat Shaul and Mount Scopus.

In Givat Shaul, near the western entrance to Jerusalem, which is a commercial and industrial zone, 25 percent residential use will be permitted for the first time. At Mount Scopus, due to the surplus of student dorms, the Bronfman, Resnick, and Ha’arazim dorms will be converted to housing.

The Bronfman Dorms will comprise 500 housing units with 3,000 square meters of retail space. Resnick’s dormitories will have 1,000 units, 30% of which will be for rental only, plus 200 sheltered units. The Arazim dormitories will include 130 rental units as well as 8,000 square meters of office and commercial space.

In Givat Shaul there is now the potential for 1,500 new homes on land available for construction in the suburbs, now that it has been rezoned for 50% commercial and office use, 25% hotels and 25 % of dwellings.
