Tama 38 in Jerusalem

Is it possible to carry out a Tama 38 project in Jerusalem?​

Project Tama 38 Jerusalem has been approved in the city only since the year 2014 after the District Commission formulated all the rules and guidelines for implementing the plan in different parts of the city.

According to the law, construction rights granted to the contractor will be limited to the addition of 2.5 additional floors and will not be allowed in historic parts of the city, as defined by the municipality and in collaboration with the Misrad HaPanim.

What is Tama 38?

Project Tama 38 is a government program, designed to achieve one major goal: fortifying old buildings from earthquakes. In order to allow each building to go through the reinforcement process, the government has built a scheme that allows the buildings’ occupants to pay for the reinforcement work, via building rights that will be given to the contractor, for building apartments at the top of the building and selling them for a profit. This way, the apartment owners themselves are not required to pay for the work.

Since the contractor is already doing thorough and comprehensive construction work on the building, the plan also allows the renovation work to expand in order to renew the building, including components such as adding an elevator, balconies, private parking, lobby renovation, apartment expansion, etc. all in exchange for the building rights granted to the contractor, which is worth a lot of money for him.
