The Bat-Yam Municipality complex is designed to be the center of the city’s CBD. The site is bounded by roads on all four sides, the road at its east being about two storeys higher than the road at its west. The height difference between the two roads has been exploited to design a series of urban plazas with a large shopping mall beneath them and the Municipality Building tower rising above it, containing a municipal theater, a café, and a ten- storey office structure that forms the southern face of the plazas. The plazas include a gardened municipal plaza with a view of the sea, and an inner plaza sheltered by the envelope of buildings opposite the theater and the foyer of the Municipality Building.
