This APB branch, which later became Bank Leumi, was built at the end of the 19th century when people began venturing outside the walls of Jaffa`s Old City. It was part of a group of buildings that were constructed near the Old City wall and moat. Originally meant to be a private residence, its large common area was designed in a style frequently found in other upscale homes in the vicinity. After it became a bank branch, the building was decorated with frescos, marble floors and elegantly crafted carpentry. The preservation works at the site included the refurbishment of the top floor and its facades, as well as the restoration of the front balcony, the stone decorations and the intricate carpentry works inside the building.
