Controversial Beirut Force

Solidere is the company behind the rebuilding of downtown Beirut. Look them or loathe them, Solidere is transforming Beirut. Sometimes the new core seems soulless and designed for wealthy gulf emirs. But the shops, restaurants, architecture, housing all make for a brilliant urban core where there was once desolation. It will be interesting to see how this plays out over the next few decades.

Nice place, you could easily spend a day there.

Would have loved to see more shops, as a lot are closed!

Restaurants and cafes are EXPENSIVE.

who shops here? We bought nothing as the multinational chains charge the same prize as everywhere else. Most Lebanese cannot afford it. Much is not locally appropriate. The organic food and cosmetics market appeals to a small minority of above average income but feels like the markets in every other western city. And why spend millions $US on an appartment in a still unstable political setting where this vanity project is reviled by many.

Solidere or Down Town Beirut was a good place to visit and to check out all the stores and high-quality brands. Although some parts of it were very empty with no sign of people, despite the many high rise buildings.

Architecturally well designed area with modern buildings very attractive for any tourist.
Shops more than requirement and most of them empty. Most of world brands are there but no one visits the shops.Very few people are sitting at front
of cafe shops.

A great part of ‘downtown Beirut’ was destroyed during the countries long civil war.

A great part of ‘downtown Beirut’ was destroyed during the countries long civil war. There was a major project in the late 1990’s to turn the ruined buildings back to their former glory and the infinitive was called Solidere or now called “Beirut Central District”.
Now the reconstruction work has been completed and it is a great district of Beirut to simply to walk and enjoy the Roman archeological sites and the various old churches and cathedrals that are all in the area plus enjoy a coffee or ice cream.
I must admit that 10 or 15 years ago this area was much busier that it is today.
On Saturday’s they have within Solidere a nice type of: ‘Farmers Market’ called: Souk El Tayeb. Finally there is ample underground parking so you don’t need to waste your time looking for any street side parking.

A nice plaza

The solidere plaza is a must see in the heart of Beirut. In the past it used to be more dynamic. It is much calmer now.
