Toha: Tel Aviv, Israel

Currently under construction, ToHA will occupy 19,000 square feet and comprise two buildings, one a 63-story tower that will surpass 800 feet, making it Tel Aviv's – and Israel's – tallest skyscraper.

The two towers will house offices and other commercial space and thanks to an innovative design by star architect Ron Arad, himself a native of the city, it will be energy efficient and offer plenty of public space throughout.
