Levontin 28 - White City Group

Jacobson House

This three-story building was originally planned as an office building above a commercial floor. In practice, it has always served as a mixed-use building that includes offices, apartments, and a commercial ground floor. Today, it features 12 residential apartments and commerce at street level. The building has been meticulously preserved while also adapting to today's needs; the apartment layouts, increasing their number, and installing protective areas (""mamad"") and elevators. In addition, the commercial floor has been restored to all its original details.

Levontin 28

In 1933, with the Nazi's rise to power, one of the severe restrictions imposed on German Jews was the ban on retrieving cash. However, an agreement was signed between the Jewish Agency and the Nazis that allowed the purchase of goods in Germany instead of transferring money, making it easier for those leaving Germany to make their new life in Israel. Among the goods bought were German-made, yellow Villeroy and Boch tiles measuring 15/15 cm that found themselves in Levontin 28.
