Locals call the building “the Grudge” and rightly so. This extremely narrow building standing on a mere 120-square-meter piece of land in Beirut was built specifically so that one man can block another man’s view of the ocean.

One of the brothers owned a minuscule plot of land, and was bitter for receiving the short end of the stick. Unable to build anything useful on his property, the jealous brother erected a narrow building, which was more or less a wall, so that his brother’s view of the sea was blocked in the hope that this would cause the value of his land to decrease.
