Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University's Brownfields Center will meet with engineers and business real estate specialists from Beirut, Lebanon, who plan to turn a vacant Mediterranean waterfront property into a $4 billion mixed-use commercial development.

Deborah Lange, executive director of the Brownfields Center in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, said the center received $200,000 from the U.S. Commerce Department's Trade and Development Agency to introduce the Lebanese engineering team to engineering technologies, construction services and companies with expertise in waterfront development.

The Lebanese development team is seeking technical advice for construction of a new city center on 445 acres of land, including land reclaimed from the Mediterranean Sea.

'They want to accommodate a broad mix of land uses ranging from business and residential to cultural and recreational uses,' Lange said.

The Brownfields Center was developed in 1996 to develop interdisciplinary solutions to challenges posed by old industrial sites.
