Holon Urban Concepts

The city of Holon is just south of Tel Aviv, with a population of 190,000, part of the Dan Metropolitan Region. With KSM involvement in the Green Line Light Rail System and Red Line LRT in nearby Bat Yam, it was decided that KSM present to the city analysis of how the new transportation corridors may lead to a rethinking of the city master plan and land use patterns. In addition KSM was commissioned to master plan along with Zurbavel Architects, a new high density residential neighborhood with 2000 dwelling units called Naot Shoshanim. KSM not only master planned the neighborhood but designed the public open spaces and worked for the city on plan checking and coordinating plans submitted for permitting by the various contractors involved in the projects.
