March 2018

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

Saada West is being developed by Bahrain Real Estate Investment (Edamah), the real estate arm of the Bahrain Mumtalakat Holding Company (Mumtalakat), reported the Bahrain News Agency (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.

The project is being implemented in two phases. 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 outlets, in addition to a multi-storey car-park building.

The seafront property is likely to be completed in May next year and operations due 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.

Edamah embarked upon its latest real estate project 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 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 is about to start and we expect to award a contractor for the project by May,” stated Al Rumaihi.
