I wish other real estate developers would follow Greenstone’s example and try to preserve some of Beirut’s history by combining the traditional to the modern. What Greenstone has done is keep the facade of the original building and incorporate it into the design of the new building and the outcome, as you can see above, is amazing.

You can read more on L’Armonial and the project’s progress [Here].

I hope this project will inspire other real estate companies and our culture minister Gaby Layoun to avoid demolishing old houses, like Amine Maalouf’s residence, and try come up with alternatives similar to what L’Armonial did.
