This land was purchased after the First World War. Twenty dunams were transferred by the Tel Aviv municipality to Pinhas Rotenberg, the founder of the Israel Electric Corporation, which established there the first power station in Israel, operated in 1923.
On the side of the large well, which was used to irrigate the orchards, a water tower was built in 1925 designed by the engineers’ office, Gut-Berman, overlooking the south and east of Tel Aviv. The tower is located in the residential neighborhood that was then called Ramat Hasharon.
A neighborhood grocery store opened on its first floor, and after years the place served as a workshop for the municipal water plant.
The water tower was restored by IEC in the framework of its community activities, in cooperation with the Council for the Preservation of Israeli Heritage Sites and the Tel Aviv-Jaffa Municipality in 1999.
