nice update! It is gaining in height - now almost the same height as the Monroe (which is a third of the total height).

This looks like it was during the war because the city looks too quiet. Also, it only really rained and became gloomy when the war started (rumor has it that Israel released some sort of chemical to create rain clouds so that the view of their planes and ships could be obstructed!)

Yea it was weird, because just after the war started, it all of a sudden became unseasonably cloudy and rained for several days.

Beirut! dont forget that when there is a lot of smoke, due to the bombings, it releases chemicals in the air itself and forms a cloud overhead.

Welcome

I wanted to take a pic which shows the underground levels of the tower. There were at least 5 to 6 floors. Unfortunately, the security officer over there prevented me from taking pics from the inside. (His tone was very very rude!)

Well, let me update the status of the building.
One or two new floors have been added.
Unfortunately, I cannot take pics during these times in Central Beirut because of the tense situation. The army is all over the place and probably they won't let me take some shots.

Nareg (or anyone), do you think the PT has surpassed the height of the Monroe Hotel at this point?
