According to Massilati, conspicuously absent from the list for new high-rise construction was Tel Aviv, despite being the leader in overall ongoing construction. Indeed, in Tel Aviv 1, 609 apartments are being built in buildings with over 21 stories.

Hanan Sagel, the vice president of marketing at the Dizengoff Trading company which builds projects in the city, mainly on the city coast, explained the sharp increase in demand for apartments in Netanya.

“The increase in the amount of construction beginning in Netanya is the result of projects which were approved a year ago, and despite this it is still a long way from meeting the high demand to live there, ” said Sagel.

“There is a high demand because, among other reasons, the prices of the apartments in the the towers overlooking the sea in Netanya are cheaper by 60%-70% that those overlooking the sea in Tel Aviv.”
