The Haifa district planning and construction committee has approved a plan to evacuate two old apartment buildings in the Kiryat Shprintzak neighborhood and replace them with a 22-story residential tower, reports www.local.co.il. The existing buildings contain 13 tiny apartments of just 42 sq.m. each, while the planned tower would contain 100 apartments of about 110 sq.m. each.
According to the report, the Shprintzak area contains an ageing population housed mostly in very small apartments in low-rise buildings, surrounded by large stretches of open land slated for suitable apartment towers. A committee spokesman said the project was in line with plans for urban renewal, and the new tower would be physically distant from other low-rise buildings in the area.
