Welcome to Bahrain Bay!
For many of us, we have witnessed a dramatically changing Manama skyline and indeed a coastline to boot as development abounds unstoppable. Bahrain Bay can proudly claim its place within this short history as once rapidly reclaimed empty spaces fill, along with drawing silhouettes and outlines fast becoming a striking reality. Bahrain Bay has come of age with more and more visual evolution evident as a steadily increasing stream of traffic now has somewhere rather spectacular to go.
With on-going building at a steady pace and landmark structures already successfully established, it is perhaps a good time to boast a little and bring information up-to-date with Bahrain Bay’s new website. After all, it will not be so long now before the vast expanse of the BD 45 million ‘Avenues’ shopping complex opens its doors, bringing footfall to an all-time high along the 1.5 kilometer seafront perimeter of the Bay. The temptation to visit will be irresistible.
Bahrain Bay will remain forever a unique land and seascape in its own space, thus seemingly ageless, never to be obliterated by urban development. Its prestige is immediately eye catching and practical with its ultra-modern road network soaring across crystal waters.
Un -missable is Bahrain Bay’s first iconic structure, the towering Four Seasons Hotel, which opened in 2015 to well-deserved fanfare, firmly stamping its attributes in the list of striking buildings rapidly emerging in this ever expanding nation. As you read my latest update , the second equally iconic, high-rise structure will have opened its doors. The ‘United Tower’, is remarkable by shape alone as it spirals in a twist 50 floors skyward, glistening in the never ending sun. The United Tower, houses the 260 room Wyndham Grand ; it’s first in Bahrain and part of the largest hotel group in the world. As a mixed use building, both office and residential units are also available.
As the days turn into short months, more and more tenants will be making their way to Bahrain Bay. Already Al Barak Banking Group have settled in and again, another striking symmetric building with a unique exterior which befits the now trendy banking moniker seen in financial centres around the world. The Al Baraka building also claims its uniqueness as it stands in its own ambience and one clearly recognizes it from any distance.
Bahrain Bay certainly qualifies as a future proof investment opportunity having been well endorsed by a number of local, regional and international investors who quickly came forward, wholly supporting the vision. We’ve witnessed major commitments from discerning bodies in each of the Gulf countries too who clearly see the opportunity, thus highlighting the testament to changing financial parameters.
More recently, Bahrain Bay was selected to exhibit its full potential and indeed solid progress so far, at the ‘ Cityscape Global ‘ held in Dubai. Bahrain’s Economic Development Board (EDB) presented a pavilion at the show with Bahrain Bay one of the four developments chosen to participate on the stand. Proud and flattered by the immense attention received, Bahrain Bay will nurture and definitely be aiming high for in the very near future.
Having sprung from coastal waters, to what it is today, it’s time to showcase achievements and in doing so, Bahrain Bay will hold its grand opening event which has been scheduled for October this year. Aptly called ‘Bahrain Sea Festival’, the celebration will highlight the Island’s rich local traditions associated with the sea. The Bahrain Sea Festival will cleverly blend the thoroughly modern aspects of the bay while at the same time highlighting a proud heritage theme. Then, as the year nears its end, the Nation will celebrate its National Day on December 16th and Bahrain Bay is ready, for it will join those festivities, hosting the dazzling firework display which has also become an annual tradition which grows more spectacular each year. Held under the patronage of the Capital Governor, H.E. Shaikh Hisham Bin Abdulrahman Al Khalifa, there’s no better way to spotlight this magnificent development.
