‘Sama Beirut’ project, in the heart of Lebanon’s capital, constitutes a milestone in 21st Century development, with a skyscraper that will grace the skies of Beirut.
Launched under the patronage of His Excellency, Lebanese Minister of Interior, Ziad Baroud, yesterday, the project, rising to 50 stories, will be a landmark in Lebanon, a fully Lebanese investment, from the people, to the people.
Sama Beirut’s prime location in the Sodeco area, in the heart of Ashrafieh, is currently attracting large masses. ‘Sama Beirut’s’ proximity to Downtown Beirut, makes it the perfect address for potential investors. It will include shops, offices and apartments.
The view from the tower promises to be wonderful, as the surrounding are filled with green trees and esthetically designed gardens. The tower itself will bring real estate development in Lebanon to a new level, especially as this project is the first of its kind in the country and is a big leap forward in the field of urban development.
The project has injected with the best equipment and materials, rising to 200 meters tall in the heart of the city.
This project will put Lebanon in the spotlight again, after the country emerged from the global financial crisis, attesting to the invincible Lebanese spirit. It will also raise the country to an equal footing with neighboring countries that own similar massive architectural developments.
‘Sama Beirut’ tower redefines the parameters of the region. It is conveniently located in Sodeco, which will contribute to the prosperity and revitalization of that area. It will also serve as a unique aesthetic construction with its sophisticated revolutionary conception and modern equipment, bringing back charm to the region and to a large part of Beirut, whether through its modern private health club, or through its external space or luxurious commercial shops.
The residential section of the tower, which can be accessed through Elias Sarkis Avenue, offers its residents a private entrance. The apartments vary in size, ranging between 300 and 1500m2. In addition to the residential units, the tower contains six commercial shops that will be held by luxury brands. As for the office spaces, they will welcome blossoming businesses, and are conveniently located in the vicinity of all facilities and services that may be eventually required.
Architects Elie and Randa Gebrayel designed both the exterior and interior spaces of the project in a unique way, with the tower façade made entirely of advanced composed curtain wall, and a revolutionary non-coordinated form rising in levels to reach the top of the tower at an altitude of 200 meters.
The main adviser to the project, Prime Consult, a company that provides real estate consultancy, was behind the creation of the concept and the purchase of land, after undertaking financial and market studies for ‘Sama Beirut’. The company, headed by Massaad Fares, is handling marketing and sales, in addition to financial and administrative management of the project.
The tower, which is expected to be fully operational in 2014, will be a great milestone, paving the way for many new huge projects of this type.
