Our friends at the Government Press Office are moving to new digs this week. While we don’t envy them the move itself, the nicer facilities will be a great blessing.
They are relocating to the Jerusalem Technology Park, also known as the Malha Technology Park. It is a high-tech industrial park located in the Malha neighborhood of southwest Jerusalem, Israel, beside the Malha Mall.
“The Jerusalem Technology Park covers an area of about 15 acres (61,000 m2) and was built gradually and populated since 1996, along with the development of the entire area, which includes: the Jerusalem Mall, Teddy Stadium, Jerusalem Malha Railway Station, Jerusalem Tennis center, the Biblical Zoo, a residential neighborhood and a park.
The Park was designed and built as part of urban development plan that puts an emphasis on integrating the urban fabric with the surrounding landscape, while creating a quality working environment. Within the park, in-between its buildings, there is also a Sculpture garden.
On the hill above the mall, office building and stadium is the now infamous Holy Land Towers development.
Their old location at the bottom of Hillel St, in Beit Agron was in terrible shape. Hopefully this move, which puts them nearer to many of Jerusalem’s news organizations will improve their lives.
