First phase of HOK-designed Bahrain Water Garden City nears completion
A major new mixed-used waterfront development in Bahrain will be promoted at a real estate exhibition next month, its backers have announced, Arabian Business reports.
Albilad Real Estate Investment Company said in a statement that construction of phase one of the Water Garden City project is nearing completion.
The project is masterplanned by Aecom, while HOK are on board as sub-consultants to create a city “designed and tailored to benefit primarily residential and commercial users”, Albilad said.
The project, located in Seef District, has two main water bodies integrated within the development – a marina and beach.
It also includes residential units and a commercial district which will provide offices for businesses that embrace new ways of working and understand how a good working environment leads to increased productivity.
The three precincts of Water Garden City are further divided, creating a total of nine neighbourhoods, each with their own distinct features, the company added.
The first phase, which will include the Marina Promenade dining strip, comprising family orientated restaurants, is nearing construction completion, with tenants moving in later in the year.
All infrastructure requirements have been completed for the Marina District including roads, electrical power, water supply, sewerage network and Batelco optical fibre high speed cables have been installed.
The Sky Garden villas are also nearing completion while construction of the planned Marriott Residence Inn is due to start later in 2017.
The Gulf Property Show takes places from April 25-27 at the Bahrain International Exhibition Centre.
