BEIRUT | Projects and Construction

B e i r u t - L e b a n o n




Welcome to the largest urban renovation project in the world! The Lebanese Capital Beirut had completely changed in less then 10 years
under the company of Solidere. Buildings damaged by decades of war that could be salvaged were restored meticulously to match the old architecture.
Phase I of the renovation project was completed in 2004 and phase II (highrise phase) has started, with an all new Beirut Marina planned that is currently under construction and a second Beirut Marina on the reclaimed land to be completed in 2025.

wow! Hard to believe Beirut was bombed out not too long ago, not then again, Berlin was, too, and there was nothing left of Hamburg and look at them 20, 25 yrs later.
