Studio Libeskind and architect Yigal Levi designed this conceptual pyramid tower that will feature 26 storeys.

The idea is simply titled the 'Pyramid Tower' and it will be located in the center of Mahane Yehuda market in Jerusalem, Israel. The goal for the tower is to act as a multi-purpose building that will contain 200 apartments, a hotel, a rooftop restaurant and an observatory. The rooftop will contain a canopy-like cover that will actually be the tip of the pyramid. The open-concept rooftop will also provide exquisite views of the surrounding cityscape, doubling as a glorious, stargazing oasis.

This skyscraper is set to be the second tallest building in the city as it is expected to reach 105 meters in height.
