Evacuation of a historic building for a residential building in Kiryat Yam - in its place will be erected a new and modern building of 9 floors, with a commercial floor and an office floor, and 7 residential floors.
The municipality of Kiryat Yam, through the Urban Renewal Administration, is promoting four construction evacuation plans in the scope of over 7,000 housing units, the first of which is expected to begin demolition this year.
Mayor David Ibn Zur: "This is the immediate answer to the earthquakes. We are promoting urban renewal because it is the lifeline and development of the city, we have no other way, and we have proven ourselves to be outstanding in this at the national level."

Kiryat Yam was added last year to the umbrella agreement with 12 other municipalities.
In addition, it was honored to be one of ten municipalities that received a grant to plan the urban renewal of an entire neighborhood - Neighborhood D.
City Engineer Yuval Baranov: "In the past, there were one-off projects of demolition and construction, but this is the first time that a multi-story residential building has been demolished and replaced by a new structure. I believe that this is a promising first wave for the coming year."
