Shrinking Palestine - An Architectual Challenge __    
Saudi Arabia plans for Downtown Ramallah
In the last years the prizes at the real estate market in Ramallah rised up to the sky. According to the fact that more and more Palestinians have to live in a more and more shrinking land a new architecture will be necessary. Thus, investors from Saudi Arabia are currently buying urban properties to realize high flying plans: the New Downtown for Ramallah (NDR) - with scyscrapers until a height of 190m. The new buildings of the NDR for offices of NGOs and other international companies will offer also luxury appartments on the highest floors with a view to the near, unreachable Mediterranean Sea.
