The elegant, Ottoman-era train station in the capital’s German Colony neighborhood will soon be the center of an entertainment and cultural revolution in the capital, complete with restaurants, bars, a farmers market, galleries and concert space, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat announced Tuesday.

The train station complex is expected to open in April. Avi Murdoch, a contractor who helped transform the Neveh Tzedek train station in Tel Aviv, designed the renovations for Jerusalem’s train station, which will be called “First Stop.”
