Thanks for posting this link Arz, but I think it would be much more productive if we posted the major individual projects here in separate threads so we can discuss them here, and have them posted in an organized way... and get more attention from the mods so they will give us a forum.

^^Give Lebanon time and it will prevail over those desert cities... Lebanon is more natural, has a rich culture/history, many REAL tourist attractions, a liberal lifestyle, #1 hospitality, etc... Also, they didnt have 15 years of war like we did, bust still, look at us now...soon their oil will run out and their weather is just awful, all the tourists will flock to Lebanon instead.

No offense to all the Gulfies! Its just my thoughts...but Beirut will indeed rise again and rival Dubai in tourism.

6 Tower Complex in downtown Beirut.

Levant Holding ,a susidiary of Al Sayer Group, is going to construct a six tower complex in Al Shuhda Square (Martyr's Square), Solidere.

The six towers will be 160m, 140m, 120m, 90m, 40m and 30m high. Elevated bridges will connect the six towers to a shopping mall. There will be two commercial towers, two residential towers and a 5 star hotel. The advantage of the location of this project is that it gives views of both the mountains and the sea.

This project will be completed within 3 years.

I'm sorry but I haven't found any renders for this project.

^^ Thank you for this, but oh God I think its awful... It will not only block the view of the sea from Martyr's square but the buildings do not look modern at all...maybe this is just not a very appealing render but I am quite disappointed.

a special architectural contest was organized to pick a design for this project. So it has to be innovative and unique, I got an undetailed description from an architect friend who was involved in the selection, it seemed interesting, with the towers being linked through a series of stairs, bridged and outside spaces. It shouldn't be that bad afterall.

I was hoping the genius Lebanese architect Bernard Khouri would get a footprint in the solidere area (other than the couple of small projects he was commissioned there so far). Something like a supertall or a major project, There is still hope.

Investors pumping billions of dollars into marina development in Lebanon & the region

Soaring regional demand for boats over the last few years has spurred massive investment in waterfront development. Over the next five years, a whopping $20 billion will be invested in the sector. A stunning $1 billion has already been spent on marinas and seafront developments in Lebanon alone.
