Our hospitals (see Hadassa case) barely have enough money to pay salary to their doctors and you seriously think , it could get built in the next 5 years?

Sadly, it's not the winning proposal

they came in second place

and the winner is this building; 19 floors above existing 3 floors parking lot:

The winning design is 8 floor parking + 2 lobby + 20 residential = 30 fl not 19.

and it won because they managed to squeeze in more tiny apartments,
16 tiny flats per floor.. 300 flats with only 3 elevators!!
The people who reviewed this plan must be blind, stupid or dont care.

As is often the case, the second-place building is much more interesting and innovative than the first. People, especially large organizations are afraid to be bold. They prefer to follow the herd than set out in a new direction.

It's not about being bold, It's about money. The hospital has a very strict board of directors including representatives of the ministry of health and treasury. It was obvious they would go with the most coast effective offer for the design

they just know that the flats will be sold out to staff or people who need to live
as close as possible and this competition alone is probably enough marketing to presale it
all with a waiting list and no advertising. so they dont need to do anything special.

Avivster, just a moment.
These 8 parking floors are going to be underground are they not?
In which case its still 3+20=23 floors above ground.

no, look at the rendering.
its 8 parking floors (existing structure plus..) and above 22 floors.

in any case the "shortage" is so high that projects like this one are in
no hurry to start construction..

Hmm, you may be right.
It looks like 8 floors of over ground parking floors and then the tower.
Pretty rare design for Israel.
Usually they put the parking floors underground.
