Lebanon’s tallest building has been completed in Beirut following a seven-year construction period, reported the Council on Tall Buildings.

Developed by Antonios Projects SAL and designed by ERGA Group, the 52-story Sama Beirut features a glass facade using materials supplied by the French multinational manufacturer Saint-Gobain, which ranges from neutral to blue depending on the transparency of the shaded glass.

Supported by a base that hosts six high-end retail boutiques on the ground level, the project boasts office and residential units which are split between the tower’s halves. Occupying floors two through 13 sits the office spaces, while the rest of the floors are for private use.

LEED-certified for its sustainable methods and features, including the water treatments, waste anagement and air quality control, the tower sits on Beirut’s popular Sodeco Street and maintains views of the sea and mountains alike.
