Israel To Build An Island On Tel Aviv's Coast

The Israeli government is interested in constructing a man made island in off of Tel Aviv's coast. Although they are seeking a variety of purposes for the tiny sand pebble (it's really small) their plans range from building an airport on top to a power station.

(Israel Today) Israel is planning on constructing a manmade island off the coast of Tel Aviv. The project, initiated by Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai and Transportation Minister Shaul Mofaz, would see the manmade island built between 1.5-2.5 kilometers off the Tel Aviv shoreline, constituting approximately 250 acres. [...]

While government agencies prefer the island be used as an airfield, the committee that reviewed the plans for an island understood it was to be used as a power station. There are a total of 13 purposes to be used for the island, an airport ranked ninth.

There is some resistance to the idea from environmentalists, although the reasons against the project do not seem to hold much water (no pun intended). The article did not go into details over the other various purposes for the island, although I could imagine several hotel chains seeking to set up shop there, as the view would definitely be incredible!
