Work in full swing on Bahrain's premium waterfront project

MANAMA, June 27, 2019

Bahrain Real Estate Investment Company (Edamah) said steady progress is being made on its  premium seafront development, Sa'ada West, located on the Muharraq coast adjacent to Shaikh Isa Bin Salman Causeway, with nearly 60 per cent of work already completed.

Edamah, the real estate unit of the kingdom's sovereign wealth fund Mumtalakat, said Sa'ada is a first-of-its-kind waterfront development mainly designed to cater to the needs of a diverse base of Bahraini locals and tourists, as well as serving the requirements from an investor and business perspective, providing the tenants with a differentiated project.

It features a variety of public facilities, including restaurants, kiosks, and a promenade, alongside various other services, enabling the development to emerge as a value-adding project for the community at large.

According to Edamah, the premium mixed-use waterfront project is being implemented in two phases. In Phase One, a 18,000-sq-m area has been reclaimed and prepared besides seawalls and jetties being constructed, while in Phase Two, currently under way, seven new buildings are being built featuring a total of 45 retail and food and beverage (F&B) units in addition to a multi-storey car-park building, it stated.

With a mix of both retail and hospitality spaces, the Sa`ada 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.

Ali Al Rumaihi, the head of corporate financing at Edamah, said: "Phase One consists of the development of restaurants and cafes with spectacular sea facing views, and a harbour for cruise boats and other leisure facilities."

The Phase Two will see the development of a centrally-located, multi-storey car parking building, acting as a link between the culturally rich Muharraq Souq complete with a modern waterfront promenade and pedestrian bridge, explained Al Rumaihi.

With the work in full swing, all the seven buildings will get completed in September and the 200-space car park will be ready for use in November. Mohammed Jalal Contracting is under taking the phased construction work.-TradeArabia News Service
