The development comprises 3,100 villas that are being developed as part of the country's Mazaya and social housing programmes
Bahrain’s Ministry of Housing is nearing completion of works for its Deerat Al Oyoun development project, it has been revealed.
The development is an integrated residential community that spans 120ha (1.2 million sqm) and comprises 3,100 villas as part of the country’s Mazaya and social housing programmes, Bahrain News Agency (BNA) reported.
The Mazaya programme is the ministry's collaboration with the private sector to develop social housing for citizens on its waiting list.
The ministry reportedly expects to hand over the first batch of the villas to their recipients by 2018.
Bahrain’s Housing Minister, Basem bin Yacoub Al-Hamer, recently visited the Deerat Al Oyoun site, where he was briefed about the progress on the development.
Al-Hamer said: “The Deerat Al Oyoun development project epitomises the success of the partnership between the ministry and the private sector to provide social housing.”
The 3,100-unit residential development is being financed and constructed by local developer, Diyar Al Muharraq.
