I was hoping for a point tower, too stubby looking from the Marina view.. we need something slender and more curtain wall glass

It's not that bad really,but 100 millions$ is too much,that money can build a 50+ f tower in any other country in the region.that has to be EXTRA prestigious!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Technically, it's not really in front of the Beirut Tower, only the Bay Tower.

I like the top of the building, not so much the main facade. It will certainly make the MT and PT look bad, but then again its only 8F and wont really have much of an impact.

The facade of this building turned out to be different than what they had in mind:

I don't have any updates for this project. But I'm pretty sure there are workers on-site.

if it was any taller, it would cover the view of the building behind it. i think it looks good and of the right size. but the price is kinda too much...100 mil , thats over 10 milion per apartment? is that right? (thats assuming its 1 apartment per floor)

Everyday I pass by it and till now have not noticed anything special. I'm not sure if they are working on the foundation.

It is obvious that the cost of construction of this building has been the central issue in the thread. Honestly, once I read it is 100-million dollar project (This implies I'm not 100% per cent sure). However, taking into consideration the costs of neighbouring projects all exceed 100-million dollars, then it makes sense.
