Location of the Pyramid construction site in Jerusalem

B”H
Just recently I wrote about Jerusalem’s Mayor Nir Barkat who is planning a new symbol for Jerusalem. Believe it or not, it is going to be a pyramid. The ancient Egyptian symbol of slavery is coming to Jerusalem !
Once the pyramid is ready, it will be for the wealthy only. Pure luxury in an area where people don’t really have too much money. Yesterday I took a picture of the exact location where construction work has already begun: Agrippas Street leading into Eliash Street.

The former parking lot is already fenced in.

 

I only hope that this posh pyramid for the rich is not going to destroy the character of this great old neighbourhood. The people who are living here are ordinary people and could not afford higher rents. Who wants to see a pyramid in Jerusalem anyway ? Our city is the most famous place place on earth and what we definitely don’t need is selling out Jerusalem.
