Eastern Marina by Solidere
Solidere is planning to launch works in its Eastern Marina, to the east of the waterfront district, near BIEL. “It has been planned and designed and now it’s just a question of time,” said Mounir Doueidi, General Manager.
Solidere will fund the entire project, which may start by mid 2015, according to Doueidi. The marina was designed by the Denmark-based company, COWI. “It will resemble Zaitounay Bay,” he said. The marina will incorporate an urban beach resort, including a hotel, serviced condominiums, low-rise residences and quayside retail outlets. It will be serviced by an underground car park.
Upon completion of the Eastern Marina, the city center will offer a 3.5 km uninterrupted extension of the Beirut shoreline, providing more than four times the space of seafront promenade currently available in the city.
