The much-awaited auction of Bahrain's stalled Amwaj Gateway mixed-use real estate development has been postponed until 2019. Bahrain’s Judicial Committee for the Settlement of Stalled Real Estate Projects has posted the auction of the failed project until 9 January, 2019.

When it eventually goes ahead, the auction will open with a starting bid of $46.5m (BHD17.5m), more than 50% below its initial price in 2017.

The committee said the decision to delay the auction, which had been scheduled to take place this year, rested on efforts to resolve stalled real estate projects and protect the rights of all parties involved.

An attempt to auction off the property in October 2017, with an opening bid price of $95.5m (BHD36m), was unsuccessful.
