"According to the plan, the former police structure will be razed and replaced by seven structures ranging between four and five stories in height" As an architect with the experience of few years of work in Jerusalem, let me tell you that by Israeli law, the building permit is required when a building outside envelope is altered (even slightly) or a new opening in it ( eg a window) is envisaged. That razing a public building and erecting a complex of new buildings in its stead would be subjected to no building permit procedure is a kind of world record, possible only in this sad wonderland-democracy called Israel. Leaves one indeed speechless.
