I disagree. Visit any city centre in Europe or the Middle East and you'll notice there is something fundamentally wrong with Solidere's "Downtown".
Whoever said it in the article is completely right - Downtown is soulless. People do not live there. There are no fresh markets, no barber shops, no workshops. There are no public spaces where people picnic or play with their dogs or read a book when it's sunny.
It is artificial. It is a desolate mall like the ones you might see in Dubai. How I dream of a Solidere-less Beirut where the stalls would return and the heart of the city would come back to life, so that I can see it in all its former glory.
it was and its still a huge soulless open air mall with nothing to do with lebanon or its culture.
shove ur lies up where the sun dont shine

But yes, it was a bustling place before the peasants set up camp...

yes it would have been smarter and much better to close tari2 saadnayil, you know where the real seat of power liesKind of silly then for Hezbollah and Co. to set up protest camps in a desolate and stillborn area. Keep clinging to those delusions of yours....
