Beirut - the Souks project

"The reconstruction and development of the war-torn Beirut Central District (BCD) involved an area of approximately 1.8 million square meters, including Beirut''s principal public squares and avenues. Plans for the rejuvenation of the BCD, an area that has favoured settlement for thousands of years, touch on virtually every aspect of reconstruction and development. In addition to the complete installation of modern infrastructure, including roads, utilities, public spaces and marine works, the project will highlight and integrate the archaeological wealth of the city and provide the opportunity for the development of a quality urban environment with vast public gardens, recreational and cultural facilities, residential, commercial and office space."
