the city today has some 60,000 people. in 15 years from now the city will grow up to 250,000 people.
Sited on a treeless, hilly terrain of rocky escarpments and fertile valleys, the new city of Modi'in, located between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, is planned for a population of 250,000. The topography consists of a series of valleys running east to west towards the sea converging at the site's center. The Modi'in master plan proposes a continuous network of urban roads and community services within the valleys culminating in the town center, where the valleys join the principal north/south highway. Each valley, planted with a different type of tree, becomes a winding spine of the city, devoted to parks and playgrounds, neighborhood shopping areas, schools, synagogues, clinics, and other facilities. Four-story apartments and terraced housing follow the natural topography up the hillside, with high-rise structures on the hilltops acting as landmarks with views of the Mediterranean and the coastal plain. The entire city, with the exception of schools and community services, is being constructed by the private sector.
