The Lebanese Village is consistent of 50 buildings, each with apartments of various sizes and studios. 30 of those buildings are 24-floor residential and commercial towers. There are also a big mall, a group of Villas, a range of restaurants, and VIP chalets with their services.
This project is coming to life with the help of various Lebanese architectural firms like Abdul Wahed Chehab’s, whose architectural work has the traditional Lebanese aspect to it. Sofar 25% of the project is complete.
