Bahrain's new waterfront project set for 2019 launch

MANAMA, February 5, 2018

Work is progressing at a steady pace on the Saada West, a seafront property development coming up in the Muharraq area of Bahrain, with the reclamation now fully completed.

Endorsed by Bahrain's Prime Minister HRH Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, Saada West is being developed by Bahrain Real Estate Investment (Edamah), the real estate arm of the Bahrain Mumtalakat Holding Company (Mumtalakat), reported BNA.

A mixed-use waterfront development with both retail and hospitality services, located at the entrance to the old city, Saada West is envisioned to house a promenade with family entertainment, an experience of harbour-side dining and a modern marina hosting an array of boats, it stated.

The project is being implemented in two phases - wherein the first phase (reclamation works) has now been completed, while the second phase involves the construction of seven buildings with a total of 45 retail and food and beverage units in addition to a multi-storey car-park building, said the report.

The seafront property is likely to be completed in May next year and operations set to begin the following month.

"The contemporary development of Bahrain’s historic city, Muharraq, is designed to enhance regional culture tourism and family entertainment," remarked Essam Khalaf, the Minister of Works, after inspecting the project site.

"I am very pleased to see how the area is progressing and look forward to the upcoming stage of building works and development," stated Khalaf, while touring the site along with Khalid Al Rumaihi, the chairman of Edamah.

The latest real estate development by Edamah was embarked upon to develop Muharraq’s waterfront area, linking residents and tourists with the country’s heritage heartland.

Alongside the contemporary retail spaces which will be connected to the city’s traditional suq, a car-parking facility will be built to accommodate up to 500 cars in line with the requirements of local inhabitants and visitors.

"In line with the vision set by HRH Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, the Prime Minister, the team in Edamah has been working very hard to ensure the area’s development is conducted smoothly," remarked Al Rumaihi.

"The second phase in which contracting works are to take place is about to start and we expect to award a contractor for the project by May," stated Al Rumaihi.
