"Thank you very much to the Israel Hotel Association.! "This is an exciting occasion for the mayor, who since his inception has worked to encourage and develop tourism in the city, in cooperation with the Jerusalem Development Authority, the Jerusalem Affairs Ministry, the Ministry of Tourism and Prof. Michael Porter.This cooperation led to a revolution in the field, and in recent years we have witnessed a trend of increased demand for hotels in Jerusalem. At the Jerusalem Marathon event last month, some 3,700 runners from around the world came to Jerusalem to enjoy the attractions it have to offer. In addition, the Jerusalem Conference Assosiation is promoting conferences in Jerusalem, so that almost every week a different conference is held in the city, bringing hundreds of visitors who stay for the rest of the week. Tech and high-tech industries are also being promoted simultaneously in the city.In addition, thanks to the allocation of many resources, including budgets allocated specifically by the Ministry of Tourism, which worked to advance the Encouragement of Capital Investments Law, 1,000 new hotel rooms will be added by the end of 2018 (both in boutique and other hotels). The next few years will add another 4,000 rooms.The unprecedented investment in the hotel industry is bearing fruit, and a recent survey shows that Jerusalem is perceived by its critics, Israelis and others alike, as a creative, leading and interesting city, especially in culinary and cultural fields. At the same time, there was a 25% increase in visits by independent tourists and in Milan tourism (tourism abroad), and a 35% increase in domestic tourism.4/2/2017 9:00:00 PM

The new Bezalel complex continues to be builthttps://www.jerusalem.muni.il/en/Municipality/Municipal info/Pages/ThenewBezalelcomplexcontinuestobebuilt.aspxThe new Bezalel complex continues to be built<img alt="" src="/Municipality/Msg_84/PublishingImages/NewBezalel-1.jpg?RenditionID=14" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><p>​The local planning and building committee approved the granting of a permit to build the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in the Russian Compound.</p>​The municipal planning and building committee approved on Wednesday the granting of a permit to build the Academy of Art and Design at the Russian Compound in the center of the city. The transfer of the academy to the city center will provide the students with an urban, community and diverse learning environment. This is part of the plan to renew the city center, which sees the return of thousands of students from the Bezalel Academy to the center of Jerusalem as an important part of the program. The students will enjoy the advantages of living in the city center and will contribute to its development. In addition, many visitors from the center of Israel will enjoy a vibrant and vibrant cultural center.Mayor Nir Barkat said, "The return of an important institution like Bezalel with thousands of students to the city center will continue to revitalize and leverage the city center, which in recent years has become a bustling, vibrant and advanced center - more attractive to young people, students and artists. The Bezalel Academy joins other projects such as the Jerusalem Art Campus, the student dormitories and more, as part of the Jerusalem Municipality's goal of attracting young people to the center of the city, in order to strengthen their businesses and entertainment centers in Jerusalem.A little historyBezalel Academy of Art and Design was established in Jerusalem in 1906 on Shmuel Hanagid Street of today. Over time, the place was too short to accommodate the many students and visitors, and in the early 1990s it was decided to transfer it to Mount Scopus. About 10 years ago, it was decided to have Bezalel School of Design return to the city center, in order to make the old and important institution an integral part of the developing city center.Over the past few years, the Mount Scopus compound hasn't been able to accommodate the large number of students. This need, together with the desire to operate in an urban work environment that will allow creativity connected to the community and society (parallel to the development of the city center), has prepared the ground for the institution's return to the city center. The restoration of the Bezalel complex to the city center will contribute greatly to the development of the city's cultural and artistic branches. The institution is a source of pride for the city and the municipality, and the municipal interest is to maintain the institution as a leader in its field.About the planThe school will be located in the Russian Compound on an area of 10,394 square meters, which is owned by the Israel Lands Administration and allocated to the Bezalel Academy by the State. As part of the plan, the various plots in the area will be consolidated into one lot of 9,177 square meters, which will be used by the academic institution.3/28/2017 10:00:00 PM
Renovating Mahane Yehuda: upgrading the Shuk’s roofshttps://www.jerusalem.muni.il/en/Municipality/Municipal info/Pages/RenovatingMahaneYehuda.aspxRenovating Mahane Yehuda: upgrading the Shuk’s roofs<img alt="" height="115" src="/Municipality/Msg_84/PublishingImages/MahaneYehudaMarket.jpg" width="184" style="BORDER:0px solid;MARGIN:5px 15px;" /><p>​With the arrival of spring, Shuk Mahane Yehuda will undergo a facelift: the Eden Company, in coordination with the Shuk’s merchants, will renovate their roofs with an investment of around ₪15 million by December.</p>​Through the Eden company (the Jerusalem Center Development Company), the Jerusalem Municipality will soon begin a project upgrading the roofs of Shuk Mahane Yehuda. The project will cost around 15 million NIS, and is expected to be completed in December 2017. This is a joint project between the Municipality, the Ministry of Tourism, and the Jerusalem Development Authority (JDA), in coordination with the Shuk's merchants.Shuk Mahane Yehuda is currently blossoming both culturally and economically for the first time in years, thanks to cooperation between merchants, local business owners, and the Jerusalem Municipality—made possible by the Eden Company. The Shuk has become a focal point for many visitors from outside Jerusalem, and a tremendous success story that symbolizes the awakening of Jerusalem's city center. The Shuk houses a mix of Jerusalem businesses, restaurateurs, and a unique night life. All these have attracted visitors and revelers from all over Israel, who have brought economic and business prosperity. This is also evidenced in the tremendous demand for opening businesses in the Shuk.Shuk Mahane Yehuda has great business potential, in light of its strategic placement between major transportation axes and its attractiveness as a mercantile epicenter. At present, it has around 30,000 sq. m. of commercial space, which contains a wide range of businesses including traditional ones (food, services, clothing, and shoes), new businesses such as various boutique shops, gourmet restaurants, and others.The Municipality is committed to further investment in improving the infrastructure, developing commerce, and promoting culture in the Shuk, which represents one of Israel's strongest commercial and tourist centers.Jerusalem Mayor, Nir Barkat, emphasized that "in the last few years, the Jerusalem Municipality has invested, via the Jerusalem Development Authority and the Eden Company, millions of shekels to restore and improve the physical infrastructure of the city center. We expect to invest tens of millions of shekels more. The upgrading of the Mahane Yehuda Shuk area represents another successful example of our extensive activity to reinstate the city center as a thriving public space which is full of commercial and cultural activity."Member of the city administration and Community Council portfolio-holder, Moshe Leon, noted that "to my great joy, the Ministry of Tourism, led by Minister Yariv Levin, approved my request for budgeting 12 million NIS out of the 15 million NIS that were designated for the project. The improvement of Shuk Mahane Yehuda, the beating heart of Jerusalem, is very high on the Municipality's priority list—as it should be. This investment, unprecedented by any standard, will bring about the prosperity of businesses in the entire area and will represent an even greater source of attraction for tourists and the tens of thousands of Jerusalemites who visit the location every day."Deputy CEO of the Eden Company, Leor Bar David, explained that "after reaching a cooperative and agreed upon course of action with the merchants, and pooling the required resources, a tender was publicized which included the upgrading of the roof and the drainage system, the addition of lighting and innovative air-conditioning systems. The outline of the work, stages and timeline for implementation, were coordinated together with the Shuk's merchants, and they are full partners in the project."3/21/2017 10:00:00 PM
For the first time in 50 years: Jerusalem’s territory grewhttps://www.jerusalem.muni.il/en/Municipality/Municipal info/Pages/Jerusalem’s_territory_grew.aspxFor the first time in 50 years: Jerusalem’s territory grew<img alt="" src="/Municipality/Msg_84/PublishingImages/bniya1.jpg?RenditionID=14" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><p>​The Ministry of Interior transferred land for new residential neighborhood in Jerusalem, which will have around 2,000 new residential units.</p>​250 new hectares of land were recently added to Jerusalem’s control following a multi-year process, which will allow the Municipality to establish a new residential neighborhood in Jerusalem with around 2,000 new residential units. In 2009, the Border Committee of the Interior Ministry met for the first time to discuss the possibility of transferring 250 hectares of land, adjacent to the Arnona neighborhood, from the Mateh Yehuda Regional Council and Kibbutz Ramat Rachel to the control of the Jerusalem Municipality. The land was used in the past as agricultural space for the Ramat Rachel Kibbutz.Recently, the Municipality received an official letter from the Minister of the Interior heralding the transfer of the land to the city’s control. Following this, and in collaboration with the Ministry of Housing and the Israel Lands Authority, we are planning to build the “Mordot Arnona” (Arnona Hillside) neighborhood, which will include more than 2,000 residential units.The approval of the program for the residential neighborhood and the transfer of land to the control of Jerusalem, afford us and the government authorities access for developing and marketing the neighborhood. The program has already been approved and was validated by the regional committee, and is currently being marketed, a process which is expected to last around a year—before building permits are issued.Mayor Nir Barkat noted that "we are strengthening and increasing Jerusalem's size. In the 50th year since its unification, it continues to grow and to develop. The establishment of a new neighborhood will allow us to attract young families to the city, to expand our response to the demand for housing in the city, and, of course, to strengthen Israel's capital."3/21/2017 10:00:00 PM
