Imagine waking up to the serene views of the Mediterranean, taking a stroll through an outdoor farmer’s market by-the-sea, or indulging in a gourmet meal in one of the most celebrated culinary scenes in the world.
While for many, this may seem like a distant dream, especially in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, for a select few, this reality is not so far off.
With the events of the past few months irreversibly changing the global status quo, many Jews from around the world are turning their gaze back home – to Israel.
“We have recently seen a lot of interest from well-established Jews in the US, Europe and elsewhere who are looking to come back to Israel and to Tel Aviv in particular, either permanently or to at the very least have a base here, a place where they will always be welcome and can always call ‘home,’” Lee Ziv, an expert in the international and Israeli luxury real estate market recently told The Jerusalem Post.  
Ziv, who has sold prime real estate to clients around the world, currently serves as VP Sales and Marketing at Port Tel Aviv – one of the most exciting and eagerly anticipated new projects in the heart of Tel Aviv. 
Port Tel Aviv, a new development by leading developers the Hagag brothers, is a 10-story residential tower and boutique hotel located only 50m from the Mediterranean shoreline at the entrance to the Tel Aviv port.
Designed by world-renowned architect Ilan Pivko, the top seven floors of the development consist of one to four bedroom apartments on the third to eighth floors, and two coveted five bedroom duplex penthouses with private leisure decks on the ninth floor and an outside spiral staircase leading up to the top tenth level which has a large rooftop leisure deck and private swimming pool. 
All the apartments face the sea and benefit from bright, open interiors, high ceilings and floor to ceiling glazing and are adorned with the finest materials such as glass, steel, marble, and oak. 
Paying homage to Israel’s status as the tech capital of the world, all apartments are also to be fitted with state-of-the-art smart technology.
Alongside the luxury apartments, the first two floors of the development include a five-star boutique hotel with 44 rooms, a luxury spa and wellness center, spacious lounge areas, a restaurant and cocktail bar and VIP private dining rooms.
Similar to residences at internationally acclaimed Four Seasons or Mandarin hotels, Port Tel Aviv was designed to fuse an atmosphere of luxury living with an indulgent vacation.  As such, a unique quality exclusive to the residents of Port Tel Aviv include premium hotel concierge services and exclusive hotel management of the residences.
Services on offer for residents include 24-hour room service, personalized fitness programs, express laundry and baggage unpacking, flower arrangements, private yacht tours, private culinary experiences and chef-made dinners, and helicopter rides for business and pleasure.
“Port Tel Aviv is a world-class building where a dream destination and luxury apartments are intertwined with the vibrant lifestyle of the most attractive city in the Middle East," Ziv said. "It is the ideal living experience for those who want to fulfill their dream of having a home in Israel, while maintaining the high quality lifestyle and flexibility they are accustomed to.”
