About City People - Urban Renewal

City People is a leading real estate company specializing in development, management and construction of residential projects as part of urban renewal, specifically in the Tel-Aviv metropolitan. The company is among the leaders in the field of NOP 38 and urban renewal according to the Globes and Madlan rankings.
Founded by three veteran Air Force fighter pilots, including CEO Ron Chen, City People is a subsidiary of Rothstein Real Estate.
For over a decade, the company has had proven successes in leading and managing complex projects under tight schedules. The company carried out one of the first NOP 38 projects in Tel-Aviv, and recently submitted the plans for its first clearing and reconstruction project as part of the Districts Plan.
Today, City People leads 60 unique projects with an emphasis on Tel-Aviv as part of urban renewal, including buildings for conservation and buildings and complexes targeted for clearing and reconstruction. The company collaborates with the leading architectural firms in the country that perform project planning tasks under the supervision of the company’s internal architecture and planning department.

Rothstein Real Estate has rich professional experience and a long-standing reputation, which enables the initiation and construction of budget-intensive projects amounting to hundreds of millions of shekels, while having full banking support for each project.

Transparency and Customer Service as Leading Values

City People won Madlan’s transparency award and had a was ranked the highest among apartment owners in Tel-Aviv. The company puts the well-being of the tenants and personal attention given to each of them first, as it understands that an NOP-38 project is a complex process for the tenants living in the building. Therefore, City People invests a lot of resources and makes tremendous efforts in maintaining the relationships with the owners of the apartments in order to provide them, to give them a different and friendly experience throughout the life of the project.

The Tenants as Partners in the Community

Nowadays, people want to feel part of a community, especially where they live. City People is part of the tenants’ community, in light of the company’s view of the tenants as partners with similar interests. Therefore, the company takes care of building apartments and buildings that improve the tenants’ quality of life and is a partner not only until the key handover, but also a partner for life, even after the project is completed.

Recent occurrences suggest that the barriers to securing broad patent protection in the US have increased.
