Located between Begin Boulevard and the government offices of Generi 1 and 2, this new building complex of approximately 170,000 sqm will be built as part of the Light Rail Jnet network in Jerusalem. The building program of the complex includes a train depot with stabling facilities and workshops, several floors of underground parking, storage, and archives. Separate office buildings will house various government agencies, all set into a landscape designed to integrate indoor and outdoor spaces and provide a variety of public and private gathering areas. The first construction phase includes the 10,000 sqm offices of JTMT (Jerusalem Transportation Masterplan Team), including a unified control and operation center for the entire city. In a future stage, an additional 73,000 sqm of government offices will be constructed, in accordance with the masterplan, alongside the JTMT building. (THIS LEAVES YOU A BIT CONFUSED BECAUSE YOU WONDER WHY THERE IS ONLY 83 THOUSAND OUT OF THE 170 M2 ACCOUNTED FOR)
The architectural scheme was guided by the following principles:
To ascertain the best coordinated design process, the project is executed in BIM, as part of an international team with Obermeyer Planen + Beraten, Amy Metom, and multiple other consultants.
