The restoration of Beirut city center's historic fabric was a real success confirming the sustainability of traditional districts and heritage buildings and their great potential for creating value, once adapted to the needs of contemporary life and business.
Solidere took the lead in the restoration process, undertaking showcase work in its properties. Among the 265 buildings that were retained for preservation, the ownership of 11 of them has devolved to Solidere.
International experience in urban and architectural conservation was adapted to local materials and know-how, with the adoption of specific stone masonry repair techniques and the reconstitution of elaborate façades. Buildings were rejuvenated through the use of skylight atriums, roof gardens or glazed roofs. The interiors were fitted to comply with modern requirements for functionality, flexibility, comfort and efficiency.
