Ferris wheel-style parking set for liftoff in Beirut"We need to save land, we need to address the traffic in Lebanon," said Elias Beainou, general manager of Ayoub Beainou and Sons Company. However, now Lebanese companies – including ABSC – are coming up with their own, futuristic, solutions to the capital's parking problem.The Korean firm is the original manufacturer of the particular structure ABSC seeks to install nationwide. Dongyang has successfully installed its system in 54 countries around the world.Sassine-based Smart Parking Cooperation Lebanon is also attempting to introduce its own new system of parking.In June 2016, SPCL installed its prototype parking structure in Beirut's Mathaf.Although the structure bears some similarities to that of ABSC, SPCL's use of local manufacturing gives it the ability to customize each structure.However, such an environment, the company claims, is ideal for SPCL's structures.It is also good for us because then people will be able to see [our structure] and experience it," Jaber said.If all goes as planned, he predicts that SPCL's smart parking structures will be more common throughout Beirut a year from now.
