BEIRUT | Beirut Gate | ~140m | U/C

Beirut Gate

BCD - Beirut, Lebanon





This 600 million$ project consists of many plots in Beirut's Martyr Square. Many famous architects are submitting plans for the project. Two of eight plots have been approved with mixed-use commercial and residential complex and one tower that would be approx. 140m high.

there will be no buildings that will be demolished.
The famous ''bubble'' will be integrated in the designs.
The following pictures will show you how it will look like.

Digging has begun after the recent election were held. All developers are continuing and expanding their current works in Beirut. The whole city is in a construction boom
