Currently they're still digging. The plot is now very deep compared to post #5. Probably there'll be multi level underground parking.

It says its for the "main" package..In previous posts in May it says there digging and Nadini wasnt sure but says it "looks" like the foundation was done..At least we are moving forward.

well, after studying las vegas casino resorts and their structures, this kempinski seems to be curved inwards, such as the famous Bellagio, Wynn resort, Treasure island, the Venetian, they all seem to have a curved or open book structure, which is visually appealing to the eye...although vegas resorts cost up to $3 Billion dollards to build, they are much more extravagant and luxurious...To have a hotel like this in Lebanon is good enough for me :) if u go down to the construction site u can see the picture up close, its vegas style for sure...
