Thanks for this thread Nareg!

The design isnt exactly amazing but its nice and simple; I would rather have a more exciting tower in that prime location since it's surrounded by the likes of the MT and PT.

I guess I like this tower for now... I wish more renders were available though.


Also, this render is a view from the rear correct? Not a view from the marina (which would be the front of the tower)?

It looks too similar to the Beirut Tower ... but maybe that's not a bad thing?

Remember, this is the formation of the new skyline, so it would be nicer to have more unique looking towers in this area.

No they are separate towers, right next to each other. The Beirut Tower is U/C and has just topped out (see thread). This "new" Beirut Tower was just announced recently and goes by the name Bay Tower now. Both are residential high rises.

Yes. This is from the rear.

The same developers behind the Beirut Tower are behind this tower, not to mention the same architects.

The Bay Tower will come up extremely close to the Beirut Tower. There will not be much spacing if any. The plot of land they are using is pretty small.

With reference to Solidere's Q4 2006 report, the tower is waiting DGU approval for high-rise buildings.

In my previous post I used the acronym DGU.
In one of Solidere's reports, I found that DGU stands for Directorate General for Urbanism. So, it makes sense.

That is true.
Both towers have common consultants.

I checked Jacques Matta's site two days ago, they didn't have Bay Tower listed as a current project. Now that it has been added, I assume the project got approved by the Beirut Municipality.

It's kinda blending with the Beirut tower,
it doesn't stand out.
It would look good in Ramlet El Baida though
