Waterfront City Business Park in Beirut awarded LEED Gold certification

Lifestyle destination developer Majid Al Futtaim Communities has announced that its Waterfront City Business Park in Beirut, Lebanon has achieved LEED Gold certification.

The developer, which is part of Majid Al Futtaim Properties, said that LEED certification is the most widely used green building system in the world. It noted that the award of LEED Gold Certification for the mixed-use project is the latest of many sustainability awards and accreditations it has achieved at its destinations across the Middle East.

Waterfront City is billed as one of Beirut’s most outstanding mixed-use communities. Designed to be a vibrant and cosmopolitan destination overlooking the Mediterranean, it aims to deliver an exceptional quality of life and great experiences for everyone who lives, works and plays there, the developer said.

In June 2022, Ibrahim Al Zubi, Chief Sustainability Officer at Majid Al Futtaim Holdings spoke to Big Project Middle East about why incorporating sustainable practices is the only way to do business going forward.

Located on the Dbayeh seaside just off the highway, Waterfront City Business Park is said to be “the region’s first and only grade A office facility”. Covering 72,000sqm with 60% of the masterplan dedicated to green open spaces, the pedestrian-only zone features twelve purpose-built office buildings with views of the central Boulevard that runs through the area.

The developer said that the Business Park features multiple open plazas, lush landscaping, an amphitheatre where people can gather to socialise and enjoy community events, numerous food and beverage outlets, and retail facilities.

In February, Majid Al Futtaim Communities launched a new neighborhood within its Tilal Al Ghaf development in Dubai, and in April, it announced the final neighbourhood within its Al Zahia development.
