The Bahrain Real Estate Investment Company’s (Edamah) new waterfront development, Sa’ada West, is making steady progress. Work on the project, located on the Muharraq coast adjacent to Shaikh Isa Bin Salman Causeway is nearly 60% complete.

According to Edamah, the real estate unit of Bahrain’s sovereign wealth fund Mumtalakat, Sa’ada is a first-of-its-kind waterfront development mainly designed to cater to the needs of a diverse base of Bahraini residents and tourists. It will also serve the requirements from an investor and business perspective, providing the occupants with a differentiated project.

Sa’ada features a variety of public facilities – including restaurants, kiosks and a promenade – alongside various other services, enabling the development to emerge as a value-added project for the community at large.

The premium mixed-use waterfront project is implemented in two phases. The193,680 sqft phase one area has been reclaimed and prepared besides seawalls and the construction of jetties. Seven new buildings, part of phase two, currently under construction, will feature a total of 45 retail and food and beverage units, in addition to a multi-storey car-park building.

With a mix of both retail and hospitality spaces, the Sa’ada West is envisioned to house a promenade with family entertainment, an experience of harbour-side dining and a modern marina hosting an array of boats.
