Bahraini developer unveils Suq theme mall
Manama, May 8, 2014
A new suq-themed mall, being built by Bahraini developer Delmon Gate at an investment of BD1.5 million ($3.95 million), is attracting a lot of interest from Bahrainis looking for medium-sized shopping spaces.
The firm is showcasing its flagship project Souq Delmon at the ongoing Gulf Property Show in Bahrain, reported the Gulf Daily News, our sister publication.
Coming up off Budaiya highway, Souq Delmon will be a two-storey mall featuring a blend of traditional and modern architecture, the company's general manager Abdulla Ali said.
"From the outside it will look like a suq, but will feature modern amenities. The complex will host 80 shops equally spread over two levels. There will be parking space for 70 cars and a playground also," revealed the official.
The shops sizes have been kept small to make them affordable for as many people as possible, but tenants will have the option of combining them into larger spaces, said Ali.
"We think it will be a great place for shopping and entertainment and will attract families. The project is underway and we expect to finish it by June next year," he added.
Ali said rentals would start at BD350.
Another highlight of the Gulf Property Show was 'Danat Al Madina' being showcased by Eskan Bank.
A strategically-located 'micro-city', the project comprises 14 buildings having a total of 324 apartments along with 39 showrooms and retail spaces. The project is to be located on three plots at the entrance of Isa Town by the intersection of Al Quds Avenue and Muscat Avenue.
The project is a partnership between the public and private sectors and is expected to be completed in November.
Master planned island development, Diyar Al Muharraq too is showcasing Diyar Homes, Sarat residential land plots and other investor related opportunities such as the recently launched commercial showrooms plots and light industries, logistics and warehouse plots located within Diyar Al Muharraq's Enterprise Zone.
Visitors at the show said they found it a unique venue for the construction, real estate and interiors sectors.
"It allows visitors to buy property, and check out repairs, renovation and interior design companies and services, all in one place," Moiz Trading's director Aziz Khan Saheb said.-TradeArabia News Service
