looool. it looks like that will be built on the same place everyone gathers for marches. i guess we will have to find a new marching area. no but really it looks cool. right now on half of it is just a humongous parking lot that never seems to be even 1/10 filled with cars, and the other half is just unpatched land

Impressive projects. I guess it goes well with Lebanon. In Dubai there are more and more commercials for Lebanon's Real Estate, a nice example that Lebanon makes progress.

They were posted on the Al Sayer official website... interestingly they didnt refer to the project as "Phoenician Village" not once on the site (although it is not the website for the actual project), so I wonder if that will be the final name?

What do you all think about the name, I like it a lot.

Here's some more info on the Levant Holding company:


Levant Holding to raise capital
April 26, 2006

Kuwait City

Kuwait-based developer Levant Holding said it wants to increase its capital 120 times to KD120 million ($411 million) as it gears up for a major development in Lebanon.

'The company is seeking to raise up to KD119 million by offering to prospective investors to subscribe in 1.08 billion shares,' the company said in a statement.

The company -- established by Kuwait's Al Dhow Investment Co to invest in developments in the Levant -- Syria, Jordan, Lebanon -- has paid-up capital of KD1 million.

The shares, to be offered by April 30 in a private placement subscription, will have a par value of 100 fils and a fee of 10 fils per share.

Its Lebanon project -- The Phoenician Village -- comprises hotels, residential, commercial and office compounds over an area of 50 acres in the heart of Beirut. The company said in an executive summary the project is expected to generate $1.3 billion in sales.

'This project will be a landmark in Central Beirut,' said Nasser Chamaa, chairman of Lebanese real estate giant Solidere, which is in charge of reconstruction in Beirut after Lebanon's 1975-90 civil war.

'The size of the project which exceeds $1 billion reflects the importance of Beirut as the capital for all Arabs,' he said.

Levant Holding's current capital of KD1 million will rise to KD120 million after the issue.

“High liquidity is mitigating concerns about confidence crisis with adequate capitalization ratios exceeding the required standard.

Nasser Al-Shammaa, Chairman of the Board and Managing Director of Solidere talked about the importance of Solidere’s strategic location at the center of Beirut as it represents the business and touristic hub of Lebanon, and underlined the importance of Levant Holding’s project. He went on to add that the new project is considered as one of the most important investment projects in the Central Beirut District. Nasser Mohamad Al-Sayer, Mohamad Nasser Al-Sayer and Sons’ Chairman of the Board, in his speech welcomed the attendees, and gave brief introduction of Levant Holding saying, “it was established with an aim to give a platform for investors wishing to invest in the Mediterranean region.”

Al-Sayer also spoke about Lebanon’s strategic location that makes it the heart of the Middle East, and the meeting point of the three continents: Asia, Europe, and Africa. He called upon investors to capitalize on the project and added that Al Sayer Group will be the core foundation of the project through Al Dhao Investment Company. Levant’s main objective is to conduct its operations in compliance with Islamic rules and principles. The company will be guided by a Sharia supervisory committee appointed by the Board of Directors.
