Haifa Tower

Recommended Posts

Hello/Shalom :)

I'm new to Urban Planet.

Can anyone in Israel be of help.

I was in Haifa last year and they had, what I consider to be the nicest looking tower in Israel. I'm not sure what it's called or any other information, unfortunatly. Maybe someone could help with more information and/or photos.

Let me discribe it for you. It was near the port and was by far the tallest building around. What I remember most was one glass wall of the tower looked like it was being blown out, as if it were a sail on an old wooden ship. I think our Madrija said it housed government offices.

I'd say that tower and the SwisRe tower in London are my most favorite towers.

If you have any info on Haifa tower please let us know.

Many thanks/Toda

Ste
