090613_mishmash_israelIsrael’s tallest building is going up in central Tel Aviv.

The municipality’s building commission approved the Keren Hakirya complex, which will include an 80-floor skyscraper. Keren Hakirya will be located in the northeast corner of the Kirya, the Israel Defense Forces’ headquarters, and will be comprised of five buildings. Joining the
skyscraper will be two triangular-shaped office buildings and two residential high-rises.

The office buildings have been nicknamed the Toblerone Towers by planners, the Israeli business daily Globes reported, since they are shaped like the delicious Swiss chocolate. The plan calls for up to 770 apartments.
