More than $11 million has been raised from a small group of benefactors to acquire the tax- exempt foundation which owns the land on the Mt. of Olives. Two additional properties were purchased in early 2019 to complete the necessary footprint for the Domus Jerusalem.
The investment needed to build the Domus Jerusalem is estimated at $35 million, based on the practical experience of construction of the Domus Galilee. Most legal, architectural, and engineering services have been volunteered. The project anticipates use of donated materials, volunteer tradesman and labor, and local purchase of Israeli goods, equipment, and services, as with the Domus Galilee.
- $2.5 million for legal, architectural, and archaeological consulting, fees, and permits.
- $28 million for infrastructure, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, landscaping, security & communications, and building construction.
- $4.5 million for furniture, fixtures and equipment.
Kiko Arguello is coordinating a team of architects, engineers and planners to build a multi-level complex of 140,000 sq. feet, with accommodation for 80 guests, a Church, an auditorium, and rooms for meetings and celebrations.
