#COMPLETED-Beirut: "Astoria" | 20F Res

A S T O R I A

Beirut, Lebanon





www.jamilibrahim.com.lb





Accessing ASTORIA, one has a feel of infusion. Gardens & water cascade mesh to form a oneness between structure and environment.

The state of the art residential tower has 20 floors divied up between two identical blocks, but entirely independent.












Quote:
Situated between Raouche and Ain ElMraiseh, the ASTORIA building towers over the Mediterranean and rests along the most famous seaside corniche in Beirut.

Ideally located within walking distance from Hamra, Raouche, the hotel district and Down Town, this imposing residential tower enjoys, besides the panoramic view, proximity to the most sought-after outlets in the city.

It lies within a wide array of restaurants, supermarkets, and is in the vicinity of major universities and hospitals.

There is an apartment on each landing, with breathtaking 360 degree views and private gardens.

Floor Plan

That's not really a park, its private unused property...I wouldn't mind seeing a really nice tower there but it is a steep slope.

Today I saw it and the building has nearly topped out. But still too much work is needed. It seems they are working on a slow rate or had stopped construction last summer.

Across the street from where the bombing took place, the 10-story Hotel Mediterranee had all its front windows shattered by the blast.

"All the glass up to the 10th floor is broken and many aluminum [balcony] frames," said Rania Halabi, the hotel owner's daughter, as she observed workers covering the windows with sheets of plastic. The hotel's restaurant was empty Wednesday night, and Halabi said she expected no one would come over the next few days.

"We started renovations, asking no one to help. We'll keep going on," she told The Daily Star.

Astoria is located even closer to the bombing site, I wonder if the building sustained any damages?
