Once the Shalom Tower had pioneered the method of re-purposing public land for high rise development, the landscape of Tel Aviv began to sprout modest skyscrapers every time a large lot became available. One of the first followers was the Clal building on the site of the former "Silicat" brick factory. Though this was not public land, it was an unusually large parcel in the midst of a residential neighborhood, and the owners, the Histadrut Labor Federation, were able to close down an offending industrial use and win extra building rights for a mixed use development that included parking, offices and a gas station.
The location of the Clal Center was random at best. Access was poor and routed through residential streets. As a business function, it was disconnected from the commercial section of town and has remained an anomaly in its neighborhood. Since there are no other oversized lots nearby, it will likely remain as a lone office building in an otherwise residential area.
