A committee of engineers supports a controversial plan to build a four-floor parking lot under a historic square in the northern city of Tripoli, according to a report obtained by The Daily Star Monday.The experts recommended moving a taxi station currently located in the square to another area to transform Al-Tal into a pedestrian space.The report also urged authorities to carefully consider tasking a private company to design, build and operate the parking lot.The proposal to build a parking lot under the square came up after the end of the Lebanese Civil War in 1990 .Instead of the Ottoman Serail, the experts suggested the construction of a public park in the square.
