  2. 2. 13 of the Latest Big Real Estate Projects in Lebanon  Recent activity in the Lebanese real estate market has yielded a variety of outcomes for all parties involved in the industry, from developers to the banks. Travel and tourism numbers have declined across the country, and this fact alone has shaped the overall 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.
