The city of Ashdod boasts some of Israel's most beautiful beaches; however, one cannot escape the notion that its urban design still fails to successfully acknowledge its waterfront. The new plan for the marina area attempts to change all that by outlining a colossal waterfront plaza, complete with a lake for sailing, and encompassed by a circular arcade of shops and hotels. The project is located on the north-westernmost plot, adjacent to the marina docks and lining a new section of the city's long beachfront promenade. A 225-room (all with sea view) 5-star hotel, packed into a 7-storey slab perpendicular to the beachline, sits atop a horizontal pedestal containing double-height retail areas, which in turn wrap around a 4-hall convention center, with an additional meeting-room complex. The vast roof of the low structure, overlooking the Mediterranean from a distance of just a few meters, is where the hotel's swimming pool, deck area, bar and restaurant are located. A long patio helps to animate and ventilate the conference foyer in the center of the deep ground floor plan.
