This item was last updated in: 10/4/2009.

  • Location: Along Dizengoff st., from both sides, in the junction of King George st.
  • Dizengoff Center is a shopping mall, situated from both sides of Dizengoff st.. Two towers stand above the mall; An office tower ("Al Tower") and a residential tower (Dizengoff tower). Dizengoff center contains four levels of shops and restaurants, two cinemas; "Lev" Cinema with 4 halls and "Dizengoff" Cinema with 3 halls (In addition, there are several more cinemas in short walking distance), a swimming pool, an underground car parking and an additional parking on the top of the center. Dizengoff st. bisects the center and divides it into two parts, which are interconnected by two bridges and underground passages.
  • Dizengoff Center is the first shopping mall in Israel. Although a mini-mall was opened two year before at "Klal" building in Atarim Square, which also fits the title of "The first mall in Israel".
  • The center was built over the ruins of "Nordia" neighborhood, which was populated by Jewish immigrants. Before the construction of "Nordia", the area was full of vineyards.
  • During the construction of the center, the culture of shopping malls in Israel was not common, therefore, this shopping mall is unique and different from all other malls in Israel by structural and characteristic aspects. Moreover, due to the fact that the custom of shopping in malls was yet to be known and popular at the local public, the word "mall" was not customarily used, therefore, it was called a "shopping center" instead. This is the reason why people usually forget that Dizengoff Center is the first mall in Israel.
  • The structure of the mall enables the visitors to pass along all the shops in all the levels without using an elevator or the stairs, and without reaching a dead-end like other numerous malls. This is made by a gradual incline of the ascending corridors. This designing method is typical for many museums in order to encourage people to visit all of the sections.
  • The mall constantly hosts activities and fairs - the most prominent of all is the food fair, which includes many food vendors that are set all over the lower level of the mall.
  • The decision to build the shopping center was taken in 1958.
  • The whole center was built by phases, the first store was opened in 1977, and the towers were built several years later.
  • During the construction of the shopping center and after its completion, the project's initiators boasted about the new center and used slogans such as "city within city" and "a new era in Dizengoff", mainly because the center was the first of a kind in Israel due to its size.
  • The mall is being slowly and continually renovated (which mainly includes a new tiling), the renovation works usually take place at the night-time.
