Majid Al Futtaim Communities' commitment to sustainable living and lifestyles has been recognised with Waterfront City Business Park in Beirut, Lebanon, having been awarded the prestigious LEED Certification, the most widely used green building rating system in the world, at Gold level.
Waterfront City is amongst Beirut’s most outstanding mixed-use communities, being a vibrant and cosmopolitan destination overlooking the waters of the Mediterranean designed to deliver an exceptional quality of life and great experiences for everyone who lives, works and plays there.
Strategically located on the Dbayeh seaside just off the highway, Waterfront City Business Park is the region's first and only grade A office facility. Covering 72,000 sqm with 60 per cent of the masterplan dedicated to green open spaces, the pedestrian-only zone features twelve purpose-built office buildings with unobstructed views of the central Boulevard that runs through the area. 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.
LEED certification acts as a globally recognised symbol of achievement and leadership when it comes to sustainability, providing a comprehensive framework for buildings that save money, improve efficiency, lower carbon emissions and create healthier places for people. LEED-certified buildings are widely viewed as critical to help address climate change and enhance the resilience of local communities.
The award of LEED Gold Certification for the Waterfront City Business Park is the latest of many sustainability awards and accreditations achieved by Majid Al Futtaim Communities’, part of Majid Al Futtaim Properties, world-class destinations across the Middle East.
