Latest News:

- Sky Gate: The distinguished design of this upscale residential tower was developed by architect Nabil Gholam, which won the "Highly commendable" (Second Best) Award for Tall Buildings at MIPIM in Cannes, has been approved by the Higher Authority of Planing. Development is to start later this year, for completion by the end of 2012.



Besides the foregoing projects, MENA Capital has recently acquired a strategically located property in Achrafieh to develop an upscale residential tower surrounded by over 2000 sqm of attractively landscaped gardens.

Several other projects are being considered in Lebanon, including new residential concepts and resorts.

Is it normal in lebanese real estate to see projects offering apartments of such size?

Yes, most often a whole floor of a building is shared between two families or one (highest floors). I always find their apartments oversize compared to Ottawa, Canada.

Do you think it has to do with the size of an "average" lebanese family or just with the target market?

Not sure to be quite honest, there was always this mentality of a ''winter living room'', ''summer living room'' and the typical living room for show only lol... along with the other typical rooms (3 to 4 bedrooms, kitchen, dining room, bathrooms and a laundry area). At times, you would also find a small family room between the bedrooms. The biggest room in the house is usually the dining room and the living room.
