THE GRAND VISION
Ahlam is the dream of a smarter world where a mindful community lives in harmony with its land and is enthusiastic about passing on this lifestyle to future generations. It’s a dream we dared to dream twenty years ago, and that is now a reality. Located an hour away from Beirut’s city center, the 1,100,000 sqm real estate project is centered around nature and healthy living; the seed of a new mentality we rooted and is set to blossom on this gifted land.
Living here is choosing landscape; taking hour long walks and quenching your thirst off the natural springs. It’s removing the leaves from your freshly-picked groceries, calling your neighbors by name, and feeling confident raising your children in a wholesome, like-minded community.
In Ahlam, you have the chance to reconnect with the world around you. The village center is peaceful, carrying in its streets the authentic feel of the small Lebanese village, with a contemporary twist. Designed for pedestrians, the environment is pleasantly relieved from the stress of cars and the jolting rhythm of the stop lights. Children can run down the streets safely, while you enjoy the many cafes, restaurants, shops, organic market, hotel, school and other amenities in perfect tranquillity.

Summers - Residents meet in the village where the conversations resonate all day from the cafes and restaurants, while the country club’s swimming pool bursts with life. After sunset, they gather at either each other’s home or in the village, where the tables full of food are lit by the stars.
Every moment here is an occasion to bond with someone, highlighting your summer with sweet memories and lifelong friendships.
Winters - In Ahlam, your neighbors are friends with whom you can appreciate this unique setting. In the blink of an eye, afternoon gatherings around your fireplace turn into hour long dinners, where warmth and coziness allow good conversation to flow naturally.
Those more daring can also exhaust themselves with limitless outdoor fun. From enchanting expeditions to exhilarating powder skiing and community sled races, Ahlam is an exciting place to spend the winter.
THE ARCHITECT & PLANNER
Habib Debs is a French-Lebanese urban architect who studied and worked in Paris for over a decade. Mr.Debs found his way home when Beirut’s renovation program was launched; a project he saw as stimulating because of the challenge, and honorable for its cultural stake.
Known today as a figure of the cultural heritage preservation movement of Lebanon, Habib Debs worked over twenty years on urban architecture projects aimed at preserving existing structures, while harmoniously implementing contemporary construction. His intervention in the neighborhood of Saifi in Beirut being one of them.
Hoping the work we have accomplished together will inspire other developers to engage similar projects, Habib Debs proudly calls Ahlam his “signature work.”
Reputed for its impeccable work ethic and the many projects it has helped to create, FFA has been to Ahlam a valuable ally. It has played a role that was far beyond that of a developer, being steadily present at every step of the development; whether it was to overcome issues, to advise, or to initiate advancements in the project.
The FFA's primary motivation in getting involved with Ahlam started with a fascination for the site itself and was further reinforced by the passion our team expressed towards Ahlam. The FFA is fully committed to Ahlam, presently, and for many years to come.
