Most of the buildings in the neighborhood were built in the 1930s and 1940s, or even earlier. The buildings were built originally with three floors, but a roof-floor was later added to most of them. In many streets the style is European - the front turns to the sidewalk, without a fence or a backyard. This differs from the Israeli-style buildings of the 1950s, with the first floor on columns above the backyard or the parking. In some buildings you can still see the Shield Wall - a brick wall which covers the stairway entrance as refuge from the snipers firing from Jaffa at the Independence War, before most houses were designed with built-in shelters.

Today, new houses are built in the International style and Eclectic style. Most of the old houses are either being torn down, or preserved and reconstructed.
