The construction at Jerusalem Estates continues to progress at an accelerated pace, as vision becomes reality. With the partial removal of the scaffolding in recent weeks, passersby are now granted a glimpse of the magnificent building exteriors, clad with a proprietary mix of over 50 cuts and styles of Jerusalem Stone.
Simultaneously, interior finishes are being applied to the lobbies, creating an aura that even surpasses the idea envisioned in the renderings.
Let’s Take a Stroll
In the Nissan newsletter, we announced the commencement of work on Amphora Garden, the pride and joy of Jerusalem Estates. Brilliantly planned by award-winning firm, Zur Wolf, whose iconic designs include the Rose Garden in Jerusalem, the Sarona compound in Tel Aviv, the Weizmann Institute of Science and more, the garden incorporates a modern design interpretation inspired by the historical nature of the region.
The nature of the terrain, complemented by the distinct linear design motion, creates a starkly experiential promenade. The paths are made of numerous cuts of Jerusalem stone, first a full floor, and then a combined grass floor with a winding barbed line of wild stone. The immaculate walkways are dotted by various seating areas, with small pergolas providing shade and comfort to anyone who wishes to sit and take in the full garden experience.
The only designated greenery for miles, the park is estimated to be completed next summer, and will be available exclusively for Jerusalem Estates residents, offering a destination that inspires and soothes.
In the weeks following this announcement, we’ve received countless inquiries about the garden and its interplay with the overall project. In particular, we received a significant number of inquiries regarding purchasing residences facing the promenade.
Bisecting Jerusalem Estates with 8 dunam of magnificent greenery, the park consists of dozens of rare plants and flora, ecological pools, carved paths, and shaded benches for rest and relaxation – an embodiment of the unprecedented commitment to aesthetic and natural beauty that personifies the Jerusalem Estates project.
“Amphora Garden is, for me, the crowning glory of the entire project,” says Peretz Blau. “It is the linchpin, unifying the entire concept, bridging the contemporary and historical to create a unique, remarkably tranquil atmosphere right in the heart of Yerushalayim.”
With wishes for a healthy summer,
The Jerusalem Estates Team
