Water Bay’s towers are currently under construction, according to Suri, who revealed that buildings one, two, and three have reached their sixth, fourth, and second floors, respectively.

Commenting on the progress of the wider community, Suri told Construction Week: “At present, approximately 18% of Bahrain Bay is complete. An additional 10% is currently being developed by Bin Faqeeh, so that puts us close to 30% [either complete or under construction].”

Elaborating on the importance of Water Bay’s estimated completion date of Q1 2019, the Bahrain Bay CEO added: “Assuming this deadline is hit, it will take us to our 30% target of vertical development.”
