MANAMA, October 15, 2017

Work is progressing well on Phase One of Bahrain Marina, an iconic mixed-use project featuring a mix of residential, leisure, entertainment and marina facilities, with the piling likely to start in January next year, said the project developer.

‘Bahrain Marina’, dubbed as an iconic world-class facility, stretches along a pristine coastline in the heart of Manama and will be positioned as the kingdom’s prime lifestyle and leisure destination.

Aiming for Phase One completion by 2020, the mixed-use development will include a five-star lifestyle hotel, serviced and freehold apartments, waterfront villas along with a shopping district, fully-integrated family entertainment centre and a recreational waterfront space with dining and retail spaces, said a statement from Bahrain Marina Development Company.

A yacht club will also be built covering an impressive area with a marina capable of berthing a vast number of boats of different sizes.

The first phase of the marine works includes enabling and marine-related works such as silt removal, earthworks, shore protection, quay walls and culvert crossing in preparation for the construction stage of the project, it added.

A senior-level team from Bahrain Marina Development Company led by its chairman Abdulrahman Yusuf bin Yusuf Fakhro along with board members inspected the ongoing work at the project site and discussed the next phase.
