Since its completion in 1975, this multi level entertainment and tourism center has greatly degraded in popularity and recognition. This complex is an excellent example of Brutalist architecture. These types of buildings tend to be made out of concrete and host repetitive angular geometries about the entire structure. A major renovation plan is now in the works to restore this once grand development. In the plaza, there are still two major hotels as well as some restaurants and shops. In the center, stands the “Coluseum,” that used to be recognized as the biggest disco in the Middle East.
