On New Year's Eve, the population of Israel is estimated at 9.593 million people. The population will reach about 10 million inhabitants at the end of 2024, and about 15 million inhabitants at the end of 2048 when the State of Israel will celebrate 100 years of existence, and about 20 million inhabitants at the end of 2065. Where will these people live? Well, Israel is not preparing for the expected growth in the coming years. Our politicians focus on the now and not the future. But - "Jerusalem, we have a problem".
We need another 5-6 large cities and another 10-15 small cities to accommodate the increase in population and/or to increase the existing cities. But where can you build in the existing cities? Is there a place in Tel Avish? In Ramat Gan? Well, there is a partial solution, there is urban renewal. Instead of a 2-3 story building, there will be a 7 or 10 or maybe 20 story building, there are dozens of such buildings in the center, maybe hundreds. The density will increase, but it will in any case only be a partial solution. This is not a solution for millions. As part of urban renewal, new cities will arise - what happened 20 years ago in Modi'in and a few years ago in Harish, will be more dramatic in the coming decades - new cities will arise.
