Which Beirut Central District (BCD) project(s) are you most excited about? I'm interested in seeing what the most popular project is here among forumers... sorry I was bored...but it will be nice to see how they rank. If you aren't familiar with them, please check related threads.

NOTE: I allowed multiple votes, so please ONLY vote for those you really like.

And if I left any out, I'm sorry, but I'm only going to post the major ones that have gotten the most buzz...

^^ I like the souks because of the whole concept behind it and its historical significance, and its nice how they are modernizing it, but its just not that appealing to me - Im more into the high rises!

Nadini, this poll is only for the major BCD projects, most of these you posted are not located in the solidere area or are not major ones. Also buildings that are already completed do not count, this is for under-c or approved projects that we are looking forward to.

I chose Phoenician Village, Beirut Gate and Souks of Beirut because I want more action in the downtown area.

Marina Towers in the Hotel District because it would be a landmark. This does not mean that I dislike the others but...

I think we've discussed about this topic already jayme, I don't think they will renovate the Al Murr building (dull brown building) because it has foundation problems and other problems in the tower. I think they will demolish it and build it from scratch

Hey people,

Today I was there. I took many pics. I don't know if you realised or not, but I uploaded some images.
Hopefully, all of the pics would be uploaded later in the night. (It's taking a lot of time to upload)
