  •   Platinum Tower is a highrise residential building currently the tallest in Beirut, Lebanon. It occupies a large plot on the Saint George Bay Marina, and will be connected to the marina in the future by a pedestrian bridge. This luxury tower was a 'Hourie Development' project, designed by Ricardo Bofill Taller de Arquitectura & Nabil Gholam Architecture & Planning. It was completed in 2008, one year behind its expected completion date. It currently holds the status as the tallest building in Beirut at 153 m height, only to be eclipsed by the currently under-construction 195-meters-high Sama Beirut tower in the Achrafieh district of Beirut. The platinum has gradually occupied a significant location on the seafront, thus becoming an unmissable icon on Beirut's skyline. Located on what has become the capital's renowned hotel district, the tower is neighboring to several luxurious hotels like the InterContinental Phoenicia Beirut Hotel, Monroe Hotel, Le Vendôme Intercontinental Hotel, Grand Hyatt and the Four Seasons. It is also adjacent to several landmarks including the Rafik Hariri memorial, St. Elias Cathedral, Corniche Beirut, All Saints Church, BIEL Center, and the bullet-riddled Holliday Inn, the last witness on Beirut's rigorous past.
