Cu­bist res­i­dences take shape in Tel Aviv

The Jewish Chronicle - - CLASSIFIED - BY CHAR­LIE JACOBY

With Cu­bist-like art-ar­chi­tec­ture re­call­ing Pablo Pi­casso and Ge­orges Braque, Port Tel Aviv is caus­ing a stir in the Is­raeli prop­erty mar­ket. The project, by Ha­gag Broth­ers, con­tains apart­ments, com­mer­cial space and a ho­tel; the ar­chi­tect is Ilan Pivko.

The first and sec­ond floors are taken up by the 44-room/suite five-star ho­tel, with the top seven con­tain­ing 39 oneto four-bed­room apart­ments and fivebed­room pent­houses. Above all of this are rooftop decks and swim­ming pools for the two pent­houses. The façade is no­tice­able for its mo­saic ef­fect, cre­ated by con­trast­ing brise-soleil-shielded and open glazed ar­eas.

All the apart­ments face the sea. On the out­side ter­races, the brise-soleils can ei­ther pro­tect res­i­dents from the sun, or be moved aside to al­low sun­light to cas­cade on to the ter­races and into the liv­ing spa­ces.

Res­i­dents will en­joy 24-hour room ser­vice, per­son­alised fit­ness pro­grammes, ex­press laun­dry and bag­gage un­pack­ing, pri­vate yacht tours, a pri­vate chef, he­li­copter rides (for busi­ness or plea­sure) and beauty treat­ments.

Ever since the Bauhaus White City was con­structed in the 1930s, Tel Aviv has had a rep­u­ta­tion for de­sign­ing avant-garde build­ings. Port Tel Aviv will con­tinue this tra­di­tion and, in the same spirit, the dou­ble-height lobby will fea­ture a gallery of work by con­tem­po­rary Is­raeli artists.

The build­ing is in the Ne­mal Port dis­trict, known for its restau­rants, Fri­day farmer’s mar­ket and nightlife.

Apart­ment res­i­dents will be able to use the ho­tel ameni­ties, in­clud­ing a restau­rant and cock­tail bar span­ning the en­tire depth of the build­ing and a cinema/con­fer­ence cen­tre with meet­ing rooms and VIP pri­vate din­ing rooms. On the first floor, there is a gym and ex­er­cise stu­dio.

Fit­ted with the lat­est home tech, each apart­ment has a spa­cious re­cep­tion room and an open-plan de­signer kitchen, lead­ing to a pri­vate tim­bered leisure deck. The larger apart­ments have dou­ble re­cep­tion rooms.

Two of the four-bed­room apart­ments on the eighth floor have their own swim­ming pools, along with leisure decks that wrap around the liv­ing space. Both pent­houses have a triple re­cep­tion room, pro­vid­ing liv­ing ar­eas, fam­ily kitchen/break­fast room and a din­ing area seat­ing ten. There are also mas­ter bed­room suites with lux­ury bath­rooms and a se­ries of VIP bed­room and guest suites.

The pent­house liv­ing ar­eas open on to pri­vate leisure decks, with an out­side spi­ral stair­case lead­ing up to the rooftop leisure deck and pool.

Port Tel Aviv’s ho­tel part­ner will be an­nounced at a later date. Prices for the pri­vate apart­ments start at $1,764,888 (around £1,376,000), with the most valu­able pent­houses ris­ing to $17,056,180 (around £13,300,000). Agent is Beauchamp Es­tates. More in­for­ma­tion at port-tlv.co.il.
