RAPAPORT... The Harry Oppenheimer Diamond Museum is planning to move to larger premises in the area of the Israel Diamond Exchange, spokespersons close to the project confirmed.

The Regional Committee for planning and construction in Tel Aviv approved a new building in the Ramat Gan bourse area, which will house the new museum, according to a report in Ynet News. The 50-story building project will cover about a 47,000 square meter area, most of which will be allocated to corporate businesses. About 2,500 square meters has been allocated to house general retail businesses and a 1,000 square meter area has been set aside for the museum.

The museum was originally opened in the mid-1980s but underwent a major redesign and renovation to eventually reopen in February 2008. No timeline has been given regarding the relocation of the museum.
