Architecturally similar to le Grand Sérail, but smaller and younger by a few years, this dominant building is now known as CDR (the Council for Development and Reconstruction). It was built in 1861 as an Ottoman military hospital, conveniently located next to the Grand Sérail, which was then used as a military barracks. For a while after the departure of the Ottomans, the hospital was taken over by l'École des Beaux-Arts, but then ultimately it became the headquarters of CDR. It is located between le Grand Sérail and Eglise Saint-Louis, right above the Roman Baths.

Address: Rue des Capucins - Beirut Central District
