economy, resulting in a depletion of capital and a drop in real estate demand and
housing prices. However, property developers have continued to generate
comparatively high returns on their projects, including residential developments.
RAMCO executive Raja Makarem has observed that Lebanon benefits from a set of
fundamental characteristics that allow the real estate sector to move forward despite
economic adversity. One such element is the variety of building opportunities, which
many companies have leveraged to their advantage by expanding their portfolios
outside of Beirut. Whether located in the capital city or in its environs, here is a look at
