message from our chairman

Anthony Stephan - CEO
As a real estate developer and an active member of many international civil community societies, professional bodies and philanthropic organizations, our ultimate goal spans beyond merely developing projects, but to build sustainable communities; being the central pillars for stability, prosperity and growth.

While living and investing in a region devastated by wars and instabilities, we believe in socially responsible developments as a cornerstone for the rebirth of a stable and prosperous society at large. We always challenge ourselves and lead our teams by example not to compromise our core humanistic, family and social values.

Our successful ventures wouldn’t have happened without the hard work of a dynamic and creative team, coupled with the exchange of international expertise; to bring state-of-the-art ecofriendly products and solutions, projects that breathe life into our cities; the reincarnation of Beirut’s soul is a current challenge for which we will not spare any effort until its successful completion. As builders by culture and profession, our vision is to set trends through a sustainable approach for vibrant neighborhoods. Our dream is to radiate inspiration to regional entrepreneurs who must not stop at just being static visionaries, but to take progressive steps towards changing our gloomy present into a safer and more sustainable globe.
Anthony Stephan
