History[edit]

The first two towers were completed in 2003, and the third in 2006. The towers were designed by Moore Yaski Sivan Architects. Tower 3 was originally planned as a 140-meter tower containing 140 apartments, but this was scaled down and it was finished to a height almost identical to that of the other towers. The final design contained 120 apartments. This tower topped out in August 2004. The top three floors of Tower 2 contain one of Israel's most expensive apartments, purchased for $10 million, a record-breaking purchase at the time. The total complex contains 360 apartments.

Living in Tzameret Towers became a status symbol, although marketing was accomplished without a sales campaign or public promotion. The building set a new standard for residential buildings, with amenities such as fitness centers and swimming pools that were introduced hereafter into all new luxury complexes. The project has been described as a turning point in Tel Aviv's housing culture.[1]
