The Atarot Industrial Area
The Atarot Industrial Area is located at the northern end the Jerusalem municipality's jurisdiction, next to the airport. Atarot was established in order to serve as an industrial area for all types of industries, and is recognized as a "national priority A" area for all industries. Land costs, expenditures and development costs, as well as rental prices, are significantly lower than those in the rest of the industrial zones, within the city and outside of it.
Development slowed down at the end of the 80�s, in the wake of political events.
Nonetheless, lately, there has been a renewal of interest, due to progress in the
political process and a planned new direct road from the coastal plain. A number of
new buildings are already in advanced stages of construction.
