Bahrain's Dragon City, a major retail project infused with Chinese architectural and cultural aspects, is set to be inaugurated in September, it was announced on Sunday.

ZG Keung, the vice-president of China Max Company, said in comments published by Bahrain News Agency that construction of the Dragon City project will be completed in June, with wholesale and retail trade facilities becoming operational.

The Dragon City project, which is a 115,000m2 development being built in the southwest corner of Diyar Al Muharraq city, will incorporate 780 shops with a special area of 4,500m2, designated for warehousing.

Diyar Al Muharraq, one of Bahrain’s leading urban developers, last May assigned Nass Contracting to construct the project.  Diyar Al Muharraq master planned project. China Max will run the project and is already established in the region, having promoted and operated the Dragon Mart in Dubai.
