Majid Al Futtaim Communities, a part of UAE-based developer Majid Al Futtaim Properties, said its commitment to sustainable living and lifestyles, has been recognised with Waterfront City Business Park, its key project in Lebanon, winning the prestigious Leed certification, the most widely used green building rating system in the world, at Gold level. 
Waterfront City is amongst Beirut’s most outstanding mixed-use communities, being a vibrant and cosmopolitan destination overlooking the waters of the Mediterranean designed to deliver an exceptional quality of life and great experiences for everyone who lives, works and plays there. 
Strategically located on the Dbayeh seaside just off the highway, Waterfront City Business Park is the region's first and only grade A office facility. 
Covering 72,000 sq m with 60% of the masterplan dedicated to green open spaces, the pedestrian-only zone features 12 purpose-built office buildings with views of the central Boulevard that runs through the area. 
Majid Al Futtaim Communities said the Business Park features multiple open plazas, lush landscaping, an amphitheatre where people can gather to socialise and enjoy community events, numerous food and beverage outlets, and retail facilities. 
Leed certification acts as a globally recognised symbol of achievement and leadership when it comes to sustainability, providing a comprehensive framework for buildings that save money, improve efficiency, lower carbon emissions and create healthier places for people, it stated. 
These Leed-certified buildings are widely viewed as critical to help address climate change and enhance the resilience of local communities, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
