"The Platinum Tower in Beirut comprises 75 very high standard residential units. The 34 floor building has a built-up area of 91,000m2 and stands out with its unique envelope of custom designed glazing and aluminum façade inter-mixed with granite cladding."

The exterior looks promising!

nice update! It is gaining in height - now almost the same height as the Monroe (which is a third of the total height).
