Very very sexy, but I´d prefer if it had that "beirut exotic look". I fear that every cities in the world look like chicago or manhatten. They should maintain each culture´s traditional architectures...

Agree to a point. Unless it is done 'properly', it can end up looking like a Disney attraction. Usually the interiors maintain traditional aspects though.

But, every major city ends up with the 'box' sooner or later. Nowhere can end up looking like Manhatten or Chicago BTW. lol

Thanks for the construction shots.

Looks like the construction is going well. I think this one will help out the Beiruit skyline alot.
