I had mentioned this building back in May, but now it seems that Englewood’s “Beirut Building” will be dust soon (fingers crossed):

After two decades of failed plans for offices, condos, demolitions and even an artificial reef…the end is near for an Englewood eyesore.

No idea who coined the term “Beirut Building” – the ‘eyesore’ has been standing for over 20 years – so it’s safe to say the building was named after the scene and newsreels beamed out of Lebanon during the early 90s. Without a specific person, I’ll have to pass on the LLB certificate.
