They are currently doing the enabling works. Once that's done, they will start construction of the building itself.

The more I look at this rending the more I like this design. It has a more classic look and it is something different for the area. I'm also sure it will look much nicer in reality once completed.

UPDATE: Sorry, I didn't take any pics. Works continue but nothing appears from outside. It seems foundation works haven't completed yet.

hey hey.

just wondering, has construction progressed on the Grand Hyatt at all?

i was surfing the Net and i found out the place will be designed by the famous designer Pierre-Yves Rochon. this means that the hotel will have this classically contemporary feel; no doubt it'll be amazing. i'm sure it will make quite the impact on the Beirut hotel scene.
