The Marganit Tower is a skyscraper located in HaKirya, Tel Aviv, Israel. Completed in 1987, the building is 138 metres (453 ft) in height, although most of this is due to its "finger", a concrete mast with antennas and other transmission equipment. As such, it only has 17 floors. Now Israel's twelfth-tallest building, upon completion it was the country's second-tallest building. It was designed by ASSA Architects.

Marganit Tower is slanted 28 centimetres (11 in) to the right-hand side, a fact that was discovered in the middle of construction on April 5, 1989. Construction work continued after the checkup and approval of the tower's engineers.[1]
