Was anything demolished in order to clear this plot?

Also, from the Google Earth pic, the plot looks too small for a 27F tower, do think it might include the adjacent plot to the left? Or is there another project planned there?

Well, I don't know if anything was demolished prior to the beginning of the works.

For your second question Beirut!, I don't find the plot area that much small because by comparing it with Phoenicia Hotel's middle building, they are more or less the same width.

well what can we say guys, its not as easy as 1,2,3, be glad that we even reconstructed a part of our Beirut, and the rest will come sooner or later. Not every city has made the comeback Beirut has done! So be proud and stop complaining!

this is it lol, this building is a combination of all the buildings around it, the shiny silver is like that of the Platinum, the glass like the Marina Towers and the limestone color is like the BCD buildings, it will indeed look awesome!

HOSN 440

Guys,

I knew from the owners that the building permit has been issued and Construction shall start in 2-3 weeks (Mobilization Period). I will try to attach a photo of the most recent perspective.

Rgrds,

Did you take these pictures yourself? If so great work and thanks for posting!

I noticed it appears they have added two new rendering images to the billboard at the construction site (compare to the pic Nareg took in the Intro post).

Also, this new official rendering is much clearer and brighter and certainly improves the overall look of the tower.

I think 100 to 110 meters.... The spire looks like 9 to 12 meters tops from the end of the concrete part. I'm basing these figures on typical ceiling height at 3 meters.
