The New Waterfront District (Sectors A & D of the master plan) was the subject of a limited international competition, with the object of developing a landscape design concept for sidewalks, shared surface roads, associated spaces within the highway right of way, road islands and medians. The Competition, won by CBA will turn Beirut Waterfront's public realm into a major

contribution to the environment of the city center. Landscape and streetscape strategies are based on a variety of public open spaces, with substantial access to the sea. Streetscapes will emphasize cafés and pedestrian areas, creating a vibrant sub-center of activity in the city as a whole.
