Solidere announces plans for technology park

BEIRUT: Solidere announced that it intends to set up a technology park as part of a drive to turn the Beirut Central District into an advanced technology and IT hub that will attract small and medium sized companies.

Solidere general manager Mounir Douaidy made the announcement during the ArabNet conference held in Beirut.

“Solidere is not only a real estate company but also a living space that offers lots of activities and services,” he said.

“We are not only city builders. We also provide many things other than buildings and construction.”

He added that Beirut is an interactive city. “We transformed Beirut, a former war zone, into the best city in the Middle East,” Douaidy said.

He did not disclose the cost of the technology park nor the companies which will build it. Solidere recently announced plans to upgrade its broad fiber-optics network so it can reach a speed of 100 MB per second.

The service will be provided to all the homes and offices in Solidere.
