An unusual view of the famous old YMCA from the back.
The tall tower and the dome are part of the Y.
In back of it you see the venerable old King David Hotel.
But what's the big new building going up next to the YMCA?
The round sign on the fence says King David's Crown.
The eight-story crown-shaped residential building will have 200 apartments with underground parking and a tunnel to a new sports complex being constructed by the YMCA.
A 1.25-acre park designed by Israeli sculptor Adani will be artistically illuminated at night and include waterfalls and canals. It will be open to the public, they say.
Take a virtual tour of the project at their website.
Look at these prices for an apartment, in millions of shekels!
