I like the Jewish Community Tower better too. I thinks it fits better into the existing skyline.

I know the existing building in Tel Aviv. Shalom is a Jewish organization, that's where the name comes from.

I hate Shalom Tower. Looks too boxy and they tried too hard with cladding. The Jewish Community one is quite nice though. Looks more of an office building though.

The construction of the Shalom Tower should start by the end of 2007 or the beginning of 2008.

I am not sure about the Shalom Tower, I do not like it (maybe due to poor quality pics).

The Jewish Community Tower rocks though! A great design!

Shalom is nice for a box-type, but somehow i don't like the color scheme - it seems as if its trying to look old or 1960's.

2nd tower is nice. If there was a competition for which tower to be built the second would win in aesthetics.

My thoughts exactly. It will be dangerously easy to screw the tower up using even slightly inappriopriate colours.

Definitely looks like an oddball. Maybe it will look better in the real world

don't forget these are unofficial renders, the only one shown by architects is in the first post, the rest is just my imagination on how it could look like from different perspectives
