Trio of LEED Platinum-targeted glass skyscrapers revealed for Tel Aviv
Israel’s capital city of Tel Aviv will soon add extra shine to its skyline in the form of three glass skyscrapers for Landmark TLV, a mixed-use development that promises an “unparalleled work-live-play experience”. Designed by Israeli firm Yashar Architects, Landmark TLV will offer a design-forward and experiential office environment along with new residences, high-end retail, and public space in the heart of the city’s central business district. Filled with natural light and greenery, the towers will feature energy-saving climate systems and they are expected to attain LEED Platinum certification.
Located next to the Sarona Complex, Landmark TLV will comprise nearly 1.8 million square feet of new offices, commercial space, and residential. An internal atrium will connect two of the 45-floor skyscrapers and offer panoramic views of the Tel Aviv skyline and Mediterranean Sea, while opening up the building to natural light and ventilation. Internal bridges connecting the two buildings will also be built on every tenth floor.
To mitigate traffic congestion in the towers, Landmark TLV will be built with the country’s first dual elevator bank for both the lower and upper floors and will be designed to face outward towards the atrium. “The design concept and layout of Landmark TLV takes advantage of the unique Mediterranean lighting and each area is spatially arranged to afford large communal spaces and breathtaking views from every vantage point,” says Avner Yashar of Yashar Architects. “Every worker is part of the city when they walk out of the elevator and into Landmark TLV’s sun-lit communal spaces.” The project, developed by Melisron Ltd. and Africa Properties, is set for completion and occupancy in 2022.
