The Elite Tower is a skyscraper approved for construction in Ramat Gan, Israel. At 280 meters upon completion, the tower will be the tallest building in Israel while taking the title from its neighbor, City Gate Tower. Originally slated to be constructed by Donald Trump as the Trump Plaza Tower, the tower is now being constructed by the Azorim Group and is being constructed on the historic site of the Elite Candy Factory. The finished building will contain a museum as a tribute to this.
Originally, the Elite Tower was planned by US property tycoon Donald Trump in association with Crescent Heights Investments as his first development in Israel. Called the Trump Plaza Tower, Trump shelved the plans in 2007, when the site was sold on to Azorim for NIS 306.5 million. Trump purchased the site for $44 million.
Construction will begin in 2013, and the tower will be completed in 2016.
