A Night in the Square info/Pages/nightinsquare.aspxA Night in the Square<img alt=" " src="/Municipality/Msg_84/PublishingImages/LalyelaKikar.jpg?RenditionID=14" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><p style="text-align:left;">The most successful housing solution in Manhattan, Washington DC, and London has landed in Jerusalem: check out the newest urban living solution – co-living pods, where housing meets 21<sup><font size="2">th </font></sup>century needs. </p><p style="text-align:left;">Welcome to the world's cheapest Airbnb: only $10 a night – and Safra Square is yours to call home.</p>This must be the best Airbnb deal ever.

Want to be that guest? Post your reason on our Facebook page in the most creative way you can think of, and it might be you!The Safra Square Co-Living Project is a special cooperation between the Municipality of Jerusalem, the Ministry of Housing, the Ministry for Jerusalem Affairs and Heritage, and the Jerusalem Development Authority. It is part of the campaign led by the Municipality of Jerusalem for raising awareness of co-living solutions, also including a conference discussing these solutions. Arising from the realization that the current housing market caters only to families, the ultimate goal is to adapt the co-living model to Israeli reality, including bringing government housing regulations up-to-date. Co-living 90 percent of our time in 40 percent of our living spaceCo-living is a growing housing trend around the world. Cohabitation in cities started out as a community co-housing model in Scandinavia in the 1970s-1980s, when residents came together to purchase and manage communal housing solutions.This model has been adopted around the world, and some of the most successful co-living projects include Carmel Place (Ollie) in Manhattan, 5 buildings at Old Oak in London, and communities in Brooklyn, Washington, and Pittsburgh.Co-living redefines housing as a commodity and a service. It rests on the realization that 90 percent of the time, people are using only 40 percent of their living space. Co-living means shrinking personal space and increasing communal areas instead.Practically speaking, the housing model offers rent-only units with shared public spaces, operated by a management company offering serviced living, including maintenance, resident screening, and a rich community experience.Renters enjoy a communal life, but as opposed to the older co-living community model, do not take part in ownership or establishment of either the building or the community. Co-habitation is now a new market commodity – a rewarding residential experience for young renters, and a lucrative opportunity for developers.Communal areas in the building include a laundry room doubling as a lounge, a large common room with seating areas and a dining area, and a residents' club for parties, events, and movie screenings. The living units come fully-furnished with a bed, a sofa, etc., and equipped with a fridge, a television, and other amenities.Residents pay a monthly fee covering rent, community events, personal unit utilities (water, gas, electricity, city tax), communications (cable TV, internet), cleaning services (twice a month), and a maintenance fee. The conference on co-living will be held at the Koresh Hotel in Jerusalem on Monday, July 30.The co-living pod will be on display at Safra Square on July 30 – August 15, 2018.For further details, please contact Ravit Carmeli at Stern-Ariely-Saar PR, on 052-6678357.Competition terms and conditionsFurther details available on the Airbnb site7/28/2018 9:00:00 PM
Building a Future – Thinking Outside the Box info/Pages/BuildingaFuture.aspxBuilding a Future – Thinking Outside the Box<img alt=" " src="/Municipality/Msg_84/PublishingImages/BuildingFuture.jpg?RenditionID=14" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><p>​The Municipality of Jerusalem is promoting a planning reform for public institutions that will allow allocation of additional lots for kindergartens, day care centers, mother-baby clinics, and so on, with the aim of providing solutions for thousands of future housing units.</p>​The new planning reform for public institutions in Jerusalem will be brought before the District Planning and Building Committee on Monday, July 30, 2018.The reform changes the planning approach for the city's public zones and their utilization, and will make it possible to cluster different public uses, such as kindergartens, mother-baby clinics, and day care centers, in a single lot. This will lead to optimized land use and allow sufficient construction of public institutions for providing services for thousands of new housing units in the future.In addition, the reform will enable developers to receive approval for additional units in plans that were already approved, on condition that extra space is also allocated for public institutions.This reform is vital for addressing the continuous growth of the city and the constant need for additional housing units. Projections predict an addition of 100,000 housing units to the city by 2040, representing population growth of 450,000 people. This projection has prompted the Municipality to prepare a local master plan for public spaces, which will allow the addition of construction area designated for public institutions, leaving more land for residential use.7/28/2018 9:00:00 PM

Barkat to Ministry of Transport: Allocate Resources for the Recruitment of Bus Drivers info/Pages/busdrivers.aspxBarkat to Ministry of Transport: Allocate Resources for the Recruitment of Bus Drivers<img alt=" " src="/Municipality/Msg_84/PublishingImages/one.PNG?RenditionID=13" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><p>Mayor Barkat participated in a Knesset Economics Committee discussion on public transportation in Jerusalem and called on the Ministry of Transport to allocate resources for the recruitment of bus drivers in order to improve service to residents and visitors.</p> Jerusalem Mayor, Nir Barkat, took part in a Knesset Economics Committee discussion on Jerusalem public transportation this week, noting that, "until completion of the construction of the light rail system, the Ministry of Transport must allocate substantial resources to recruit additional bus drivers in Jerusalem, and to offer bonuses to drivers coming to Jerusalem to improve the service." He also said that, "Jerusalem chose public transportation. It's a good thing we did, because looking forward, there is no substitute for efficient public transportation."Barkat emphasized that, "until completion of the construction of the light rail system in the coming years, Jerusalem's reliance on buses will be absolute. Since the security incidents three years ago, there has been a great shortage of drivers in Jerusalem which has not yet been filled. If Jerusalem's residents are unable to rely on the timely arrival of buses when planning their day, we are going backwards instead of forwards."The Mayor explained that, "in the past, when there was a shortage of police, the Public Security Ministry added 1,200 positions and raised salaries through a special bonus for those serving in Jerusalem – an initiative that provided a quality solution to the city's security needs. Using that analogy, given the current shortage of bus drivers, which harms Egged's operations, the Ministry of Transport needs to allocate substantial resources for use in recruiting additional drivers, and should even offer bonuses to drivers willing to come to Jerusalem in order to improve the service."In addition, Barkat referred to the decision that Jerusalem will be the first city to issue a tender for the operation of a large number of service taxis that will improve the city's public transportation, saying that, "this is important news for residents, and I thank Transport Minister, Israel Katz, and the Chairman of the Economics Committee, MK Eitan Cabel."In his closing remarks, Barkat added that, "In Jerusalem, we have been blessed with very strong residents who know how to raise flags and demand solutions to problems that arise in the field, and I congratulate all of the organizations involved. I believe in the Ministry of Transport, its attentive ear, and its ability to respond to the challenges of Jerusalem during the period of transition to the rail system."3/17/2018 10:00:00 PM
