Apparently it's going to be the world's most expensive and biggest hotel.. 10 stars, and it's going to cost around $3 billion. Supposed to be built facing the new marina in Beirut, and it's going to be officially announced in August of 2008. Construction beginning in 2009, taking 3 years.

Heh yeah so I talked to my cousin, and he talked to his friend, and apparently it was slated to occur in Lebanon, but they moved it to Dubai citing the current situation in Lebanon, and the construction boom in Dubai. I still don't know if that's true, but that's what he said.
