United Tower in Bahrain to finish in Q1 2015
Upon completion, the 50-storey tower will house the Wyndham Grand Collection Manama and offer 20 floors of commercial office and retail space
United Tower, a masterplanned project in Bahrain Bay, is on track to complete in Q1 2015, according to the leasing agent.
CBRE, which has been appointed by Cooperation Investment House SPC, said the waterfront development is designed as a twisting structure rising from an octagonal floor plate, rotating counter-clockwise and offers uninterrupted 360 degree views of the bay corniche and downtown Manama.
Upon completion, the 50-storey tower will house the Wyndham Grand Collection Manama.
The property also offers 20 floors of mixed use development combining modern commercial office and retail space.
Steve Mayes, director, sales & agency, CBRE Bahrain, said: “United Tower is a landmark development in the Kingdom and with its prime location at the Bahrain Bay waterfront community, and superior build quality, it is sure to attract high-profile occupiers. We look forward to working closely with the team to support and develop its long term strategies for the project.”
Ahmed Al Qaed, managing director, Cooperation Investment House SPC, added: “United Tower will offer tenants an exceptional work environment, ideal for businesses requiring a presence in the Kingdom. With this mix-use development, we aim to cater to the growing demand for commercial space among global and local companies. We are confident that with our strong management coupled with CBRE’s strong local and international experience we will be able to deliver strong results for this asset.”
