The building shell of the Haifa seafront casino at Bat Galim may finally get some life after years. Sources inform ''Globes'' that Dor Chemicals Ltd. owner Gil Dankner, a cousin of Nochi Dankner, has bought the property from US businessman Shimon (Sam) Sheetrit.
The Haifa casino was built in 1935 in a complex engineering operation that included building part of the structure in the water. Alfred Goldberger, who designed the Haifa oil refinery structures, was the casino's architect. Sheetrit bought the property over 20 years ago, with the idea of building a banquet halls complex. He demolished the original building, and built a concrete structure identical to the original building, but the plan never came to fruition, leaving the skeleton behind.
