Facts

  • The bridge leads to a "sky-street", based entirely on Le Corbusier's idea of pedestrian streets as an integral part of a building.
  • First highrise to take a direct missile hit in the second Lebanon war, through 3 upper floors, on 07/21/06, wounding 10 people.
  • The sky-walkway on the 6th floor contains 2 shops and a kindergarden, benches and a decorated ceiling, designed by Mansfeld and Gitai, the building's architects.
  • Second largest apartment block in Israel with 200 units. Israel's largest is its neighbour 28-36 Leon Blum Street with 205 units.
  • The bottom floor serves as a car-park and contains storage compartments.
  • The main pedestrian bridge from Leon Blum Street divides the massive building into two sections, hence the "T" shape giving the tower's nickname.
  • There are 10 separate entrances from the pedestrian walkway on both sections. Section A: Entrances 4-16, Section B: Entrances 18-24.
