טקס הנחת אבן הפינה לבית העירייה החדש שתכננו האדריכלים רוברט בנט ובנימין צ’לנוב, התקיים ב-1950 (עד אז היה בית העירייה ברח’ בן יהודה). עיריית חולון הייתה בין הראשונות במדינת ישראל שכינסה את כל מחלקותיה במבנה מרכזי אחד. הבניין המקורי היה בן שתי קומות והכניסה פנתה צפונה אל כיכר בארי. בשנת 1959 נוסף האגף הדרומי בתכנון המח’ הטכנית של העירייה. כעבור שש שנים נוספה לכל המבנה הקומה השלישית. בשנת 1973 נבנה מגדל המשרדים בן 8 הקומות, בסגנון הברוטליסטי, בתכנון האדריכל רוברט בנט. כיום פועלים אגפים ומחלקות עירוניות מחוץ למבנה.

City ​​Hall
The cornerstone laying ceremony for the new city hall designed by architects Robert Bennett and Binyamin Chlenov took place in 1950 (until then the city hall was on Ben Yehuda Street). The municipality of Holon was among the first in the State of Israel to gather all its departments in one central building. The original building had two floors and the entrance faced north to Be’eri Square. In 1959, the southern wing was added in the planning of the technical department of the municipality. Six years later, the third floor was added to the entire building. In 1973, the 8-story office tower was built, in the Brutalist style, designed by architect Robert Bennett. Today, municipal departments and departments operate outside the building.
