HCP to design yacht club in Durrat Marina
Manama, November 22, 2010
Renowned Spanish architectural group HCP has been chosen by Bahrain real estate development firm Durrat Marina, to design its yacht club.
Durrat Marina has signed an agreement with HCP, according to which the latter will put designs that cater to both the contemporary building standards as well as other logistic requirements for the club.
“We have picked HCP between many other firms specialised in the business because we know it is the ideal architectural company to do the job. The Yacht Club will be an important cornerstone in the Durrat Marina project and its visitors, and we want to deliver it to them up to the highest expectations,” stated Waleed Saffy, CEO of Durrat Marina.
Planned over an area of more than 14,000 square meters, the Yacht Club will be a three-storey building and will feature a state-of-the-art facility. It will host marina leisure and sports retail shops, yachts and boat services, VIP lounge, private swimming pools, coffee shops, high-end restaurants, open area terrace, outdoor lounge area, and a guest service centre.
The Yacht Club is expected to attract hundreds of visitors and residents to Durrat Marina providing a unique type of marina ambience overlooking the Main Marina and linked to the Promenade.
At the end of phase one, there will be a dedicated area for boats and yachts maintenance, as well as retail shops that specialise in selling boats and sea instruments and tools. Moreover, restaurants and cafes are planned to be operational down the line.
Durrat Marina, a part of the prestigious Durrat Al Bahrain master development, is an investment residential and recreational project that will feature around 4,000 villas and apartments, commercial and retail areas, with residential towers right next to the water front and a Marina that can host more than 400 boats and yachts of different sizes up to mega yachts.-TradeArabia News Service
