Tourist-driven marina breaks ground
BAHRAIN: A groundbreaking ceremony for the BD200 million Bahrain Marina project took place in Manama last November. The mixed-use project aims to solidify the country’s position as a distinguished tourist destination by providing options for both permanent and short-term residence.
The marina will provide 182 berths and a 3,200m² (34,400ft²) clubhouse with entertainment activities and marine programmes. There will be 192 retail units, including luxury shops, restaurants, cafés and a 33-store commercial complex, 274 luxurious freehold homes, 304 deluxe hotel rooms and 1,769 underground parking spaces.
