Rehavia: The centre of the Jerusalem elite

Since it was established in the 1920s, Rehavia has been considered the centre of the Jerusalem elite.

The Rehavia neighborhood contains political leaders, academics, judges and intellectuals.

Rehavia has a quiet and calm environment, until you reach Rechov Azza, which is teeming with restaurants and cafes.

There are many young people and students in Rehavia, partly due to accessability to the city’s academic institutions.

There are a high number of Tama 38 projects in Rehavia. This is due to the fact that many buildings in the neighborhood have received "preservation" status from the municipality because of a historic or architectural design, which places many restrictions on the changes and extensions that can be made specifically.

Rehavia: A "historic city area"

The entire neighborhood of Rehavia is considered a "historic city area" which also adds to the property prices in this location, as well.

Rehavia properties also have the church land issue, which also affects Talbiya, and the German Colony.

In most cases the lease is expected to expire in 2050-2051, but there are properties whose lease termination date is closer.

These are apartments and valuable real estate, the question of ownership of which may become a political issue.

Due to many complexities, the status quo is unknown in connection with the future of the apartments, but there is concern that at the end of the contract the tenants will have to leave or pay the church.

Today it seems that due to the uncertainty, the value of the apartments will decrease as the end of the lease approaches.

In Rehavia, according to Madlan, 56% of properties are rented. Whilst three-room apartments are most popular, at 29%.
