Isn’t Beit Misk a village? or is it a residential compound? If it is a village then the ad is true.Shou???
Hayde “day3et” beit misk
Like… Hayde beit mery
Alf is right. It is day3et beit misk so feminine.
Beit misk is not a village …
Najib, yes it is. It was constructed as a modern day village with its own roads and electrical and water supplies.
It may be constructed like a village but it’s not one officially. Hayda machrou3 sakane not more
I know it is not more than a machrou3 sakane, but what a machrou3 sakane by the way!
I visited the project last month since I had a meeting there, and I just fell in love with it. The houses, the location, the nature, the view.. all is just so beautiful. I wish I had a couple of millions with me and I would definitely buy a house there!
well not yet Najib, so until then I’m with you on that Hayda not Hayde…
i go there from time to time and never seen a village just a great big construction site. but it’s got a nice view…
Najib, they are trying to promote it as a real village. There are “Ana men beit misk” and “Na7na men beit misk” ads everywhere on the roads.
hence the use of haydi not hayda, the ad is stressing that haydi DAY3ET beit misk. the ad is clever regardless of iza beit misk day3a or just a construction block.
Najib I win:) lol
Jenjen, not sure what you won, but if you get your Blag Baladi T shirt delivered to your home, please let me know, wouldn’t mind to have one of those… 😛
Not convinced still
Ba3den min Wen la Wen clever ?
If this is a village it should be affordable
Someone tell me how much does a house there cost ?
Not sure how much a house there costs, but someone has to pay for all that advertising, a 2 km stretch of perfectly asphalted road, a very posh reception etc…so it wont be even close to affordable…
Hayda one of many projects that are disfiguring what’s left of Matn’s landscape.
Ronman: Blog Baladi T-shirts??? What do you mean?
Joe: I wouldn’t really say disfiguring. These people actually planted a tree for each one that was cut down to build to the project. Add to the fact that people need houses! Especially those that are from Beirut and do not have a proper “Dai3a” experience. This is as close as it gets, in a Neo-Dai3a sense.
There was a full side of a mountain full of trees before that project invaded the area, do you really believe that they would replant every torn tree.. where will the buildings and roads go then?
How about zoning and planning, who said that this area can handle a 800 Million $ housing compound?
Can you tell me how many Lebanese will afford those packaged villas?
But the “Neo-Dai3a” term is quite fitting, this is exactly what this project does it mimics our traditional villages with a cement mammoth.
For more on this:
Quoting Lebanon Executive:
But with many of Lebanonâ€™s high mountains already spoiled by poorly planned development and half built concrete homes and apartment buildings, is the unspoiled upper Metn really a place to build a suburban neighborhood?
BeitMisk may be advertised as environmentally friendly, but the fact that construction will destroy a part of the forest did not render environmentalists very enthusiastic. Wael Hmaidan, executive director of IndyAct, a league of independent environmental, social and cultural activists, says that BeitMisk will destroy the natural habitat and the ecosystem of a big part of the mountain forest.
â€œThere will be plantations rather than a forest ecosystem. You cannot compare it. The dynamics are different,â€ Hmaidan says. â€œA tree does more than give oxygen. It is a habitat, a house and an eco-system.â€
Garaved Kazanjian from Greenpeace agrees with Hmaidan. He says that the organization does not support these projects, but has no capacity to pursue every development that threatens what is left of the Lebanese natural wealth.
The community center and surrounding area planned for the BeitMisk development
For the same reason, Hmaidan says that campaigning against any single development is a lost cause. What should be done is to reform planning policies in Lebanon so developments would not be allowed if they threaten the sustainability of Lebanese forests. â€œWe can continue like this until we donâ€™t have a single forest in Lebanon,â€ Hmaidan says. â€œOr we can create urban planning and a system to benefit all levels of society.â€
What about those BlogBaladi tshirts?
Joe: I recall an episdoe of Kalam El Nass where they were showcasing Beit Misk and they were claiming that for every tree cut down they were going to replant one wherever they would be able to. I assume they meant above buildings, between them etc. in a sort of “green city” concept. They also said that they had dug up old environmental laws that even the government doesn’t regard anymore and that they were abiding by them. Laws such as the archaeological value of the soil and made sure they abiided by it.
The ecosystem debate seams valid, though, and one can never know how if they really did all what they claimed they had done.
MASDAR is a green city concept, BeitMisk is not so advanced, check the rendering in the Lebanon Executive article.. there are buildings 5 floors high.. this is certainly not what we want our Lebanese villages to look like.
it has to be HAYDE as it is 🙂
they are referring to the city…
