Bat Galim Station

Haifa Bat Galim station was built as a combined rail and bus terminal in 1975. The overscaled monstrosity was clearly a product of its time and the brutalist architecture has not worn well in the salty Mediterranean air. Bus service was relocated to a new Hof HaCarmel Central Bus Station in 2003, leaving the old bus terminal largely abandoned. The crumbling and precarously cantilevered tower above the station was supposedly used by the Israeli bus company, Egged, for offices.
