  • CGI Conseil et Gestion Immobilière

    Conseil et Gestion Immobilière (CGI)

    This arm of the Saradar real estate strategy focuses on property investment and development, taking an active role in the projects it invests in to deliver above-average returns with tight risk management and complete control on the quality of the end product.

    Created in 1998, CGI has built a reputation for integrity, reliability and innovation through its diverse investment projects in Lebanon. Its primary focus has been on the purchase and development of land in exclusive locations within Beirut’s Ashrafieh district, a prime, central location with attractive returns. The portfolio combines mixed-use towers and clusters with pure residential plays, including large scale residential project Place Pasteur, a gated community with five low-rise buildings and a 36-floor tower with panoramic views of the capital, right on the sought-after Gouraud and Pasteur streets.

    To diversify its strategy and capture even more attractive returns, CGI now seeks to build projects in areas that have remained underdeveloped. The aim is to act as a catalyst for the area to grow and expand, increasing the value of the initial development through the higher attractiveness of the neighborhood. Harbor 970 is a prime example of such projects, located in Beirut’s art district with 17,000m2 of office space and 4,400m2 of retail locations.

    This two-pronged approach to its real estate assets makes CGI a daring and innovative force in the real estate landscape.
