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.
