If we had that info, we would have updated the introductory post.

About its status, it is proposed and nothing is finalised yet.
As for the location, it is behind Beirut Tower/Bay Tower.

I really like this tower! The cladding is so...unique and interseting. Really happy to finally see office towers in that area.
Is it going to be near Hosn 440?

i just noticed: i don't like the wide open spaces on both sides of the road. its a waste of space AND it's not nice for a 'city'. great building though!

yea a city needs open spaces, but those open spaces should be in the form of designated parks, rather than green spaces on the side of the footpath (which is a feature common in suburban areas in europe), a city should be dense and compact, the buildings should border the sidewalks so that people can maneuver freely without having to follow the designated grass path - in fact people sooner or later will start walking across the grass, and making the place look untidy (the grass also needs to be maintained, or else it will turn brown).
also, the only way of creating a truly pedestrian space with a cosmopolitan feel is by having shops side by side, buildings side by side etc...; if the buildings and shops are spread out people will not walk, simple as that (thus, creating a deserted-car-dependent city). :S
the only proper city i know that doesn't follow what i described above is Dubai - and well, there's practically no pedestrian life there. for a successful city (pedestrian wise) think london, newyork, paris etc...

I agree however you have to understand the use of this area...this will be a very public area when complete. It will consist of hotels and the marina with all its facilities..it is not in the core buisness district...not only that but the surrounding buildings(such as Marina towers) were designed with gardens..and the seaside parc etc
