The capital city's skyline is going to change beyond recognition after the Jerusalem Planning and Building Committee on Monday approved a plan to build 12 skyscrapers at the city's entrance. The goal is to turn the area around the Binyanei Hauma convention center and central bus station into the capital's main business quarter.

The estimated cost of the plan is NIS 8.5 billion. Officials say it will add one million square meters of office space to the city, as well as some 40,000 new jobs. --  Nir Hasson, Haaretz
