On these sites, a much freer regime of planning controls is applied; creating major architectural and development opportunities intended to attract world-class designers. This is now happening with many international architects attracted to Beirut. The move to bring world-class designers to the city was initiated by Solidere as part of the process of repositioning the city. Such architects are working both on the company’s own projects and for key sites acquired by other developers.

These derive from an analysis of the dimensional rules behind the design of buildings on the colonnaded Maarad Street and Foch Street, with its distinctive ‘jetty’ form. Streetwall controls are applied along all main streets connecting to the historic core, stepping up in scale through new development areas. The scale and form of the street is maintained, with any permitted high-rise elements set back from the street façade. A final principle behind the master plan is reflected in the form in which it all comes together; a three-dimensional massing plan that determines, not the zoning of land use, but the maximum heights, building envelopes and control surfaces of the new architecture of the downtown.

The former model of the city centre as a predominantly single-use, employmentbased central business district is breaking down and is widely perceived as having failed. What is envisaged in Beirut is a new kind of city centre that is mixed-use, emphasizing downtown living, heritage and civic value. It is to be a magnet for shopping, entertainment, culture and leisure, with a continually changing programme of festival events, while at the same time maintaining the city centre’s traditional focus of government, business and banking.
