In the next few days, Netanya Municipality, through the Netanya Development Company, will begin building the Coral Promenade, to the south of Carmel Hotel.
It will be a new promenade that will connect to the Carmel Hotel Promenade (existing) and will continue the line of promenades down the shoreline. As part of this, a portion of Ben Ami Street (starting north of Carmel Hotel and to Ben Avi Blvd.) will be canceled and another parking lot will be built instead.
The new promenade, Coral Promenade, will also have a commercial front of a residential building that will be built at the site, and in fact, will include a leisure area and, of course commercial areas that will be created by the developer.
The Netanya Development Company stated that development of the promenade will be have high level finishing, including granite flooring, decks and decorative lighting. Additionally, supporting walls and infrastructures will be built along with gardening and irrigation, pergolas and lawns. Across from the promenade, the entrance to Ben Gurion Blvd. will be arranged, including expansion of the street and the addition of a bike path. Traffic will also be arranged with the addition of a traffic light at Ben Aviv-Jabotinsky-Ben Gurion Blvd.
Cost of the work: NIS 8 million. Anticipated completion of Phase A - beginning of 2017.
Mayor Miriam Fierberg-Ikar: "There's always something new in Netanya: In recent years, the Municipality has done unprecedented work in terms of deploying new infrastructures in the city's new neighborhoods and establishing its flagship projects, along with ongoing upgrades and maintenance. The Coral Promenade is a continuation of Netanya's beautiful strip of promenades, and it will further maximize the view and enlarge the green strip down the length of the beach."
Adv. Shiri Haguel Sidon, Chair of the Halat Board of Directors: "The Coral Promenade completes the strip of promenades that runs from north to south and allows Netanya residents and their families travel its entire length, to ride their bicycles and to take refreshing walks."
