After its Fire and Water fountain was temporarily removed, the work to move Tel Aviv’s Dizengoff Square plaza to ground level began this morning (Monday) at 6:00 AM.

As part of the transitional phase of the project, 500 small pieces of the granulite floor of the square will be collected and handed out to the public. When the square has been completely destroyed, the construction of the new square will begin. The construction is expected to take about a year and will most likely end in the beginning of 2018.
