PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

The master plan for the 2,500 acre new city off the coast of Bahrain is anchored by two urban cores.  The North Core was primarily residential in character organized around a pedestrian Corniche, harbor and mixed use promenade.

 

The second core, Town Center, was more commercial in character with a sizable office component and a Lifestyle Retail Center at its heart, including:

  • Retail        800,000 SF

  • Residential     1,200 DU

  • Office        1.2 MM SF

 

Steve Kellenberg’s design team developed both urban design plans, landscape concepting and detailed design guidelines.  

 

The project is currently under construction.
