      Jerusalem's Schneller Compound To Become Deluxe Condos


      The Schneller Army camp in Jerusalem has been purchased and will be turned into residential apartments. The Israel Lands Administration has issued the building tenders for seven buildings comprising 218 apartments with 5 floors. The historic compound was built by Johann Ludwig Schneller in the 1850s and used as an orphanage. It was later used by the British army and in recent times the Israel Defense Forces.
