Bahrain: Water Garden City Phase 1 nears handover
Phase 1, which includes the Marina Promenade dining strip, is nearing construction completion, with tenants set to move in later in the year
Phase 1 of Bahrain’s mixed-used waterfront development, Water Garden City, is nearly ready.
Citing the developer, Albilad Real Estate Investment Company, Arabian Business reported that the first phase's construction work is almost completed.
The project, located in Seef District, has two main water bodies integrated within the development – a marina and beach.
It also comprises residential units and a commercial district that will provide offices for businesses.
Phase 1, which includes the Marina Promenade dining strip comprising family-orientated restaurants, is nearing construction completion, with tenants set to move in later in the year.
Zeyad Janahi, general manager of Albilad Real Estate Investment Company, said: “The presentation of Water Garden City as a well-planned, sustainable, exciting and vibrant 'urban lifestyle hub’ where local residents, tourists and visitors can live, work, play, relax with friends and socialise as a family in a safe and truly modern city space."
Albilad added that it has teamed up with US-based architecture-engineering firm, HoK, to create a city "designed and tailored to benefit primarily residential and commercial users".
The three precincts of Water Garden City are divided to create nine neighbourhoods, each with their own distinct features, the company revealed.
All infrastructure requirements, including roads, electrical power, water supply, and a sewerage network, have been completed for the Marina District.
Batelco optical fibre high speed cables have also been installed as part of Marina District's infrastructural programme.
The Sky Garden villas are also nearing completion while construction of the planned Marriott Residence Inn is due to start later in 2017.
