The United Tower, one of the most watched and prestigious projects at Bahrain Bay, has announced the completion of its external construction works with the fixing of the last piece of its façade panel.

Uniquely designed as a twirling structure, the development extends up to 50 floors.

Ahmed Al Qaed, managing drector, Cooperation Investment House SPC, the man behind the United Towers project, said: “We are very thankful to Allah that we announce the completion of the external works to the United Tower as we proceed to fix the last panel of the façade today. The twisting counter clockwise structure undoubtedly involved flawless planning and methodical execution.”

The United Tower will house the five-star Wyndham Grand Collection Manama over 14 floors of its 50-storey mixed use development combining five star authentic hospitality with modern corporate office space thus offering the best destination for business and leisure.

The tower rises from an octagonal floor plate, twisting counter clockwise that boasts uninterrupted 360 degree views of the bay and the Corniche.

With the external façade now complete, the United Tower will undergo extensive internal fit-outs equipped with modern sophisticated facilities serving corporate requirements. This will be soon followed by landscaping works around the building adding to its image of a prestigious location.

Located at Bahrain Bay, the United Tower is one of the high-rise buildings in the $2.5bln, mixed-use waterfront development that also includes other renowned brands such as Four Seasons Hotel, Arcapita, the group head office of Al Baraka Bank and the J W Marriott Hotel.

Commenting on this new development, deputy CEO of Bahrain Bay, Abdulla Al Doseri, added: “This unique structure stands out now as an architectural landmark and is a proud addition to Bahrain Bay.

“We have worked alongside the developer and their architects in a timely schedule following the highest standards that conform to our visionary Masterplan. With the utilities infrastructure now in place, the United Tower can plug in to avail the water, electricity and district cooling facilities without delay.

“We look forward to steady progress in completing the remaining works and eagerly anticipate the scheduled opening later this year.
