An International Press Club for Jerusalem being built

.

While wandering around the old Jerusalem neighborhood of Mishkenot Sha'ananim a month ago, I discovered this small construction site.
The sign says it is the future home for an International Press Club, sponsored by the Jerusalem Foundation and Mishkenot Sha'ananim.

I never realized that there is no international press club in Israel or any of its neighboring countries at present.
At least that's what it says in the Jerusalem Foundation's article about the new club. 

They certainly have a breathtaking location, across the valley from the golden wall of the Old City.
Imagine a  correspondent giving a live TV report with that background.

The JPC's website is http://jerusalempressclub.com/about-jpc-v2
and their FB page is https://www.facebook.com/JPressClub .

I wonder how long it will take before we start to see news items from there on our TVs.
