I dont think its the tallest building, theres the Al Murr tower but that one is in ruins (damaged from the civil war). However there is a plan to renovate the building with the Beirut World Trade Center

Thanks Nadini, but I noticed some of the pics were posted multiple times, and you put some of my pics that I originally posted too...so just so it doesnt annoy people let's try not to put the same pic more than once.

Keep up the good work, now what should the next thread be about.........

Hi, I believe the next tread should be about the project of the Marina park and the whole landfill project that is being built next to the Marina Towers. Or may be about the Nara Towers.

Great photos Nadini

dhamoudi,

I dont think those projects have really begun, so there wouldnt be much to post about. But if you do have some information on them PLEASE go ahead and start a thread... I think some threads on Four Seasons, Platinum Tower, and Beirut Tower are needed sooner.

The tower is impressive, with the spire on it it will look neat and beautiful. Now this area is going to be luxurious now that the Platinum tower, the Beirut tower which you see in the foreground, and the four season hotel will rise! I can't wait for the Platinum tower, it's a box but yet it feels unique for some reason, it looks pretty impressive to me.

^^Arent the Nara, and Marina same towers? Just changed name/design?
No, the Nara Towers and Marina was a completely independent project that was canceled a few years ago. It would have been 48 floors, almost twice the number of floors as the Marina Tower (26 floors) making it the tallest building in Beirut.
