Residents of the northern city of Tripoli are opposing a new building project on the city’s public waterfront, saying it would rob locals of access to the free coastal strip.

The project, as presented by one of its financiers, Youssef Fattal, seeks to reclaim land near the Olympic Stadium at Tripoli’s southern entrance.

If licenses are approved, two 80-meter high towers, a beach resort, a hotel and shops would be constructed in addition to a marina for yachts by the waterfront, which spans the city of Tripoli and its immediate neighbor, the city of Mina.

It would reclaim some 50,000 square meters of land.

Discussions over whether the licenses should be approved are due to be held by the Tripoli Municipal Council Thursday.
