Diyar Al Muharraq, one of the largest real estate development companies in Bahrain, has announced that construction work is in full swing on Souq Al Baraha, a leading tourist destination coming up within its integrated city in the kingdom.
More than 40% of the project has been completed and is due for official opening at the start of the second quarter of 2021, said the statement from the developer.
Souq Al Baraha has a built-up area of 20,242 sq m and covers a total land size of 64,202 sq m; it includes a total leasable space totaling 13,431 sq m and comprises 468 stores and 20 office units.
The project aims to provide visitors with an integrated shopping experience complemented by 686 of parking space.
Al Moayyed Contracting is the main contractor on the project. So far, a substantial percentage of the project’s spaces have already been leased to local and international investors.
Souq Al Baraha is located at the center of Diyar Al Muharraq in close proximity to the main residential, commercial and entertainment hubs within the masterplan. The market contains indoor commercial spaces and various outdoor kiosks, making it an ideal shopping destination not only for the project's residents but for all visitors from across the kingdom.
Souq Al Baraha is also well positioned to act as a leading tourist destination for visitors coming from the GCC countries and beyond, it stated.
Diyar Al Muharraq CEO Engineer Ahmed Ali Al Ammadi said: "We are extremely happy to see that the progress of construction works on Souq Al Baraha is well within the agreed timeframes, which further reflects our commitment to timely delivery of all projects while adhering to the highest quality standards."
Souq Al Baraha is a unique addition to the Diyar Al Muharraq project portfolio, and has been designed with aesthetics of traditional architecture that reflect the authentic culture of the people of Bahrain. We look forward to celebrating the completion of this project in 2021."
