Ahmed Alammadi, the CEO of Bahrain’s 12.km2 masterplanned Diyar Al Muharraq megaproject, has revealed to CW that works on its Vida hotel, Address hotel and 2,000m2 shopping mall will be completed by 2021.

The megaproject will feature facilities including villas worth $1.3m (AED 5m) which comprises a mix of modern and traditional Arabic designs, the Vida and Address hotels that also integrate residences, as well as one of Bahrain’s largest shopping malls.

The development, which started in 2007, is part of a joint venture between Abu-Dhabi based real estate developer Eagle Hills.

The developer gave an update to Construction Week during its site visit of the waterfront project.
