Highrises in Tel Aviv

I was speaking to someone yesterday who was surprised when I said that there were high rises in Tel Aviv.

I found a website that documents high rises around the world, and it listed six buildings in Tel Aviv over 40 stories tall, another dozen between 30 and 40 stories and, of course, many more between 20 and 30 stories.  Israel’s tallest building (not included in these statistics) is in Ramat Gan, a suburb of Tel Aviv.  It is 68 stories tall.  If you go to the wikipedia listing for Ramat Gan, you can see a nice picture of Ramat Gan’s high rise district.
