The Diamond Tower is a skyscraper located in the city of Ramat Gan near Tel Aviv in Israel containing the world's largest diamond trading hall, accommodating up to 1,000 people. At 115 meters and 32 floors, the tower was the tallest building in Ramat Gan from its completion until 2000, when it was surpassed by the Sheraton City Tower. It was also the tallest building in Israel outside of Tel Aviv upon its completion in 1992. Designed by Eli Gvirtzman, the tower serves as the 'head-tower' of the Israel Diamond Exchange with the first twenty floors serving only diamantaires.
