Saida North Entrance
Saida, Lebanon
Master Plan

The area selected to mark Saida's Northern Entrance falls at the end of the Beirut/Saida
expressway, meeting the new peripheral boulevard with the old municipal stadium. The
suggested master plan revolved around the rehabilitation of the multipurpose Saida Municipal
Stadium and the development of retail areas, a shopping mall, a seaside hotel and marina
around it, turning it into an urban sporting complex. A thalassotherapy center was also
planned, drawing on a nearby mineral water spring up the Awali River.
