Unfortunately that is what most people think, and they are very wrong. Beirut has returned to its former glory as the Paris of the Middle East and a playground for the rich and famous.

Thank you SSC!

Here's another render of the Phoenician Village


Some more highrise

Royal Monnot Hotel


Beirut Trade Center (we still dont know if this will happen)


Berytus Park







Société Sémiramis




Bab El Saray






Sodeco (proposed not to long ago, hopefully it will be built!)






Saifi Hills


Beirut Cultural and Conference Center (BCCC) (on hold for now but Beirut! has seen recent changes in the plot, no clue if they will go with this one or another one)

Only the Phoenician Village, all others (that were U/C or are approved) have resumed and are rising rapidly to make up for the lost time.

What a beautiful place - Beirut !
__________________
We looked at mountains until dawn, and then when dawn came, it was too pretty for me - there was pink and blue and gold, in the sky, and on icy places, brilliant pink and gold flashes, and the snow was colored too, and I said," Oh," and sighed; and each moment was more beautiful than the one before; and I said, " I love you, Momma." Then I fell asleep in her arms.
That was happiness then.
