The Interior Ministry's Planning and Building Committee today approved continued planning of the "Entrance to Jerusalem" project on Tuesday afternoon, a massive construction project that will incorporate a large cinema, conventions center, 2,000 hotel rooms, and tall office buildings that are more frequently found in Tel Aviv than the country's capital.

The committee approved more planning on the condition that the new skyscrapers not interfere with the "visual expanse" of the Calatrava Bridge of Strings at the entrance to the city.

The planned area, located between Herzl Boulevard and the Government Quarter, will include 520,000 square meters of office space.

The Jerusalem municipality has already begun the process of publishing a tender for an underground parking garage in the area.
