The multimillion-dollar Terminal car park in Manama, Bahiran's capital, has been inaugurated by the country’s deputy prime minister.

The Terminal, developed by the Bahrain Real Estate Investment Company (Edamah) at a cost of $18.6m (BD7m), was inaugurated by the Deputy Prime Minister Shaikh Khalid bin Abdullah Al Khalifa, chairman of the Bahrain Mumtalakat Holding Company.

The Terminal is a multi-storey car park, with 330 spaces, and 10 commercial outlets such as restaurants and cafés. Some of the stores have already been let, according to the Bahrain News Agency (BNA).

The project in the neighbourhood of Adliya, Manama, took 18 months to build and Edamah said in October 2016 that the company expected to completed the car park by the end of 2017.

It is not known when construction of the Terminal’s finished, but the building was inaugurated by Bahrain’s deputy prime minster in April 2018.

Meanwhile, developer Edemah continues to work on the mixed-use Saada West waterfront development in Muharraq, one of the biggest cities in Bahrain.

All reclamation work has been completed on the development.

A main construction contract for Phase 2 could be issued in May 2018, with work starting a month later, BNA said earlier this year.

A tender for construction of a multi-storey carpark with 500 spaces could be issued soon, although a date has not been publically set.
