Modi'in is a city in the Center District of Israel located approximately halfway between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. The cornerstone for present-day Modi'in was laid in 1993. It is a modern planned city with high standards of urban planning. Environmental issues and future growth were taken into consideration from the early design stages. Large greenspaces were incorporated into the city's layout and comprise 50% of the area within the city limits. The long term projection of the ministry of housing is for the city to be home to 240,000 residents, thus becoming one of the largest localities in Israel. However, plans approved for the city thus far are for only 120,000 residents.
