Dont worry (or celebrate) just yet people.

Pavlemadrid, thanks for posting this project here.

I decided to copy the important posts from the official thread at the Lebanon forum in order to make this thread more thorough.

Unfortunately, this project is currently still on hold...

hmmm, I don't like this at all actually. It looks tacky and out of place and like there was not much real thought put into this project. It jsut looks soulless to me.
I feel like so much architecture in many cities these days is all about egos and who can outdo the other. There's very little aesthetic quality and careful design. Ok I'm done complaining...

I had the same feeling, but I dont know, I cant say if I like it or not until I see it cuz the facade looks interesting. But in any case, this project would be great alongside Beirut Gate's project

After major delays with the political crisis the country was experiencing, the Phoenician Village (as well as the Landmark and Beirut Gate, major projects worth over 3 billion dollars) will resume work and it WILL be built according to Al Mustaqbal after the recent presidential election and construction boom Beirut is witnessing.

This project looks extremely similar to the Owen Street development in Manchester, UK.

Just compare these two pictures to see how similar they are. I do love them both though.
