Yes, it was completed several years ago...however for reasons unknown to the public it has been vacant ever since. During the 2006 war, the displaced from the Dahyeh stayed in those apartments.

All of it is vacant. It's not that no one wasnt to live/open business there, there must be a reason why...

It's vacant because it belonged to Taha Koleilet, so it was seized along with his assets!
then Coldwell Banker got the right to display it for sale...

Any idea whats going on with this? The building has been complete now for over a decade. Only recently have the residential units been occupied. In 2006 the building was housing Dahieh evacuees.

Ok, so I went there and talked to the concierge pretending that I want to buy a store...(and I was convincing! :P). He told me that there's none available. I asked him if they were sold out or rented, he said that they were "mdammaneen" ( I don't know the word in English). When I asked him about the apartments, he said that they are all sold out and already occupied.

I told him how comes the retail area is still empty? He said that they are planning a big opening after Ramadan, and they will all be occupied afterwards.

Also when I asked him about the reason of that delay, he was vague in his answer. He said that there were problems with the bank vouchers or something like that. I think Rabih's post # 10 could be the logical answer.

So, in a nutshell, let's wait 2 months and hope the next pictures posted here will have some famous stores showing...
