Capital’s building and planning committee greenlights construction plans for massive compound on Hebron Road; still requires additional approvals before ground can be broken
Jerusalem municipal authorities on Monday advanced planning for the new US embassy compound in the city.
The Jerusalem District Building and Planning Committee approved the project through an earlier planning stage known as deposit. Those who protest the plan will now have 60 days to file objections before the project is given final approval for construction.
Currently, the US embassy is hosted in the former consulate building in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Arnona until a permanent complex is built.
