CW In Focus | Inside Edamah's Sa'ada waterfront project in Bahrain

Why is the government-backed developer building a megaproject near the old town of Muharraq?

Government-backed real estate developer Edamah is developing the Sa'ada mixed-use waterfront destination – which it describes as one of the nation’s “most prestigious developments” – to unlock the economic potential of oil-dependent Bahrain.

The developer says Sa’ada aims to fuse the traditional Bahraini architecture for which the Muharraq area is known with the modernity of a vibrant leisure destination for both tourists and locals.

In this video, Construction Week's deputy editor, Oscar Rousseau, provides key updates about Sa'ada's construction programme following a tour of the site with senior Edamah officials.
