Oh I agree, it will just be nice to see those walls and over-grown vines come down and that space be open to the street... I hate the walls along some of the sidewalks...

I liek it. I think it looks really nice next to the Marina towers.

For a secodn I thought the Khatib and Alami was cool because my last name is Alame and my last naem has alot of ways to spell it liek Alame, Alama, Alami but I read it in Arabic and it is spelled differently. The Alame is the same as Ragheb Alame the singer

Yea I thought the same thing but its not so bad.

In just about 5 years, Verdun will be one of the nicest streets in the country.

The cobble stone, Dunes Center, Verdun Twins, Concorde Center, Verdun 2, Verdun 5, Verdun 730 and 732.... etc. Just amazing!

Verdun 2 is well under way but there has been an extremely long delay concerning Verdun 5.
