The Neve Tzedek Tower, officially Nehoshtan Tower,[citation needed] is a skyscraper in the city of Tel Aviv, Israel. Located near the Neve Tzedek district of the city, the tower is one of the taller residential building in the country at 147 meters in height over 44 floors. The tower contains 300 apartments and was completed in 2007. It is taller than typical apartment buildings because some of the floors have loft units with greater floor-to-ceiling heights. Each floor is approximately 850 square metres in size and contains between three and thirteen apartments. On the tenth floor of the tower is an indoor swimming pool and a private gym. The tower was designed by Gabai Architecture & Building.

During construction, a crane at the site fell onto Eilat Street below, killing two workers and injuring eight others. This goes down as one of Israel's worst construction disasters. The crane also crushed a number of cars travelling below.
