בית מועצת הפועלים
בשנת 1923 הוקם כאן צריף ל-31 הפועלים שחיו ב"עיר הגנים", וכלל אולם לאספות ומטבח פועלים.
בשנת 1925 נבנה בית הפועלים הראשון מאבן. כאן גם הוקם סניף ההסתדרות ברמת-גן.
עם ריבוי המפעלים והפועלים ברמת-גן הצומחת, התעורר הצורך בהגדלת המקום.
בניין זה, בתכנונו של אד’ אריה שרון, נחנך בשנת 1937.
בשנת 1957 עבר בית מועצת הפועלים למעונו החדש ברחוב הרצל פינת קריניצי ולאחר מכן למשרדים ברחוב קריניצי סמוך לכופר הישוב.
כיום משמש המבנה כבית לשבת "צופי עלית רמת-גן".

Workers Council Building
In 1923, a cabin was built here for 31 workers who lived in "Ir HaGanim," including a meeting hall and workers’ kitchen.
In 1925, the first stone workers’ building was built. The Ramat-Gan branch of the Histadrut (Labor Federation) was also established here.
With the increase in factories and workers in fast-growing Ramat-Gan, there was a need to expand the place. The permanent structure, designed by architect Arieh Sharon, was inaugurated in 1937.
In 1957, the Workers Council Building was moved to its new location on Herzl Street, at the corner of Krinitzi, and following that, to the offices on Krinitzi Street, next to "Kofer HaYishuv".
Currently the building is used as the group base for the "Ramat-Gan Elite Scouts.
