Design and construction supervisor Pace says that steady progress is being made on landmark mixed-used project in Bahrain
Pace, a leading Kuwait-based regional multi-disciplinary consultancy firm, has announced that steady progress is being made on Marassi Al Bahrain, a landmark mixed-use project by Bahraini developer Diyar Al Muharraq, which will feature both commercial and residential properties.
In a project update, Pace said that nearly 56% of the project has already been completed, with final structural works, external facades, hotel fit-out, and external roadworks, as well as all electromechanical works, are currently underway, it stated.
Eagle Hills, in collaboration with Diyar Al Muharraq, has engaged Pace to provide a full range of design and construction supervision services for the development.
Its scope of work involves public space design and master planning works, including a beachfront, slip-lane connecting flyovers and a tunnel for mixed access and traffic management for the project component.
The project spans a plot of 165,790sqm and is set to become one of the kingdom’s major shopping, family entertainment and dining destinations.
The master-planned community of Diyar Al Muharraq is a coalition of eight artificial islands, home to many prestigious developments, one of which is Marassi Al Bahrain – the crown jewel of the development.
The project is in the north eastern corner of the kingdom, 10 km away from the capital Manama, and accessible by various means of public transportation.
With an estimated completion date in the fourth quarter of 2021, Marassi Al Bahrain is well on its way to becoming a landmark of Bahrain’s urban and architectural landscape.
It will feature a high-end shopping mall, Marassi Galleria, which provides 470 retail and anchor units on a 200,000 sqm total floor area, housing leading global brands, many of which will be making their Bahrain debut.
The mall will also contain an indoor aquarium, state-of-the-art cinema complex, supermarket giant Carrefour and overall mall retail delivery services. Additional mall components include a multi-storey car park, with the largest parking capacity in Bahrain accommodating up to 6,700 parking spots.
The adjacent waterfront promenade will house two waterfront hotels, the Vida and Address, each with a 300-room capacity. Both hotels will combine a range of high-end serviced residential units alongside traditional hotel rooms and services attributed to luxury hospitality including spas, gyms, premium pools, and beach.
Upon completion, it will house approximately 22,000 residents within 5,600 high-end residential units.
