This neighborhood contains dwellings, light industry, a country club and sports club and contains 1,680 residential units plus 90,000sq.m. of light industry on the Science Campus.
Pisgat Ono project was designed to balance and integrate residential and industrial areas. The proximity between these two principal functions has enabled the municipality to set up civic facilities which are shared by both.
The concept of combining land use for residential purposes and other functions is not new. To date the common combination was that of dwellings and commerce, hotels and occasionally offices. The combination of dwellings and industry was not desirable so long as industry was a cause of discomfort. Today we are witness to the growth of the hi-tech software and communications industry, “distance” working and working from home made possible by internet communication.
The special combination proposed in our program for the Pisgat Ono neighborhood provides a solution to some of our most troublesome dilemmas.
