When exploring Tel Aviv, it’s nearly impossible not to notice its lively
streets, vibrant night life and café culture. The city center is where
it all comes down to.
The center of Tel Aviv boast a wide range
of attractions: Dizengoff Center is a haven for those who love shopping,
while the famous Dizengoff Square, with its colorfully kinetic
fountain, is rich in history. King George Street offers an eclectic
shopping experience and underground bar scene; and Bugrashov Street
entices serious shoppers with unique boutique fashion and charming
Known as ‘the city that never sleeps’, this dynamic part
of Tel Aviv literally never sleeps - whatever the hour, whatever you’re
into, you can find it all here.History
the late 19th century, a Jewish organization named "Hibbat Zion" was
founded for the sole purpose of encouraging aliya. Dr. Shimon Frug was
one of the greatest poets of the organization and the street bearing his
name commemorates his great efforts. The Lessin House, the former
Habima Theater resides just on the corner of Frug and Frishman hosting
some of Israel’s best actors and theatrical performances. The "Habima
Actors Complex," where some of the famous actors of the early 20th
century have performed, resides on 31 - 33 Frug Street. On nearly every
building a sign pointing out famous actors, poets and important names
can be seen. Location
relatively small street in the very center of Tel Aviv, Frug Street
begins on Ben Ami Street by Dizengoff Square and ends on Gordon Street.
Although Frug runs parallel to Dizengoff, it remains a quiet and serene
street with easy access to some of Tel Aviv's best attractions and
Despite being a small street, Frug faithfully represents the "White
City" with its many Bauhaus buildings. Some of the beautiful, preserved
Bauhaus buildings stand proud and are part of the famous UNESCO list,
while others still remain untouched. Typical Bauhaus architecture can be
noticed everywhere on Frug; square or rounded balconies, white, clean
cut design and low three story buildings. Meonot HaOvdim
a commune complex purposely built in 1930s Tel Aviv with a communal
yard at the center of the complex was provided for the wellbeing of the
residents, creating a Kibbutz-like feeling within the city. Many of the
buildings on Frug and the surrounding streets were built below street
level including either a basement or an "English Courtyard." The most
prominent is the inner courtyard passage connecting Frug and Dov Hoz
(the street parallel to Frug). The average apartments that can be found
on Frug range from 80 to 100 square meters in size. The residents of
this lovely street are both local and foreign families. With its close
proximity to the beach and Dizengoff, young professionals, couples and
roommates sharing flats are also part of this magical street enjoying
the very best of what Tel Aviv has to offer.
Real Estate prices in the City Center are relatively high, with an
average NIS 27,000 per square meter; on Frug the prices can even hit
the NIS 32,000 per square meter mark. The history, a long with its
serene yet center location, is what makes this hidden gem so attractive.
A designer, 100 square meter, two and a half bedroom, two bathroom
apartment, with a private 120 square meter garden residing in a Bauhaus
building is currently available for sale for NIS 4.1 million.
In July of this year, a 71 square meter, two bedroom apartment on Frug Street was sold for NIS 3,050,000.
Rentals on Frug are high as well; a fourth floor (no elevator) three
bedroom, two bathroom roof top apartment was recently rented for NIS
7,100; a ground floor, one bedroom apartment was recently rented for NIS
5,500. In real estate, it’s all about the location and when it comes to
living in Tel Aviv's hub, it can get pricey as it is convenient.
Nestled between Gordon and Ben Ami, Dizengoff and Ben Yehuda, Frug
Street is a symbol of history through its land mark architecture to its
former residents; the past and the present blends seamlessly, marking
this a magical street not to be missed.Su Casa TLV
