The Avenues – Bahrain continues to strive in redefining the shopping and entertainment experience in the Kingdom of Bahrain by developing Phase II of The Avenues – Bahrain, an extension plan worth approximately BD 60 million.
Phase II of The Avenues – Bahrain will add a leasable area of approximately 40,000 square meters, and will include 218 stores and restaurants, two entertainment zones, a supermarket, and a basement car park with 1,330 parking spaces. The combined gross leasable area of both phases will be approximately 77,500 sqm.
The new phase will include new beautifully-designed districts which promise to provide visitors with a modern and exciting shopping experience, namely The Forum, Grand Plaza, Electra, The Souk, as well as an expansion of Grand Avenue which is currently very popular and a favorite of local and international visitors. Each district will have its unique character expressed through its architectural style inspired by modern design concepts.
The project will expand the public promenade by an additional 600 meters west along the waters of Bahrain Bay, becoming the largest entertainment center facing the sea with a total length of approximately 1.3 km.
The Avenues Management has announced that Phase II is projected to be completed by Q4 2023, having successfully obtained the necessary approvals from government authorities for reclamation and piling works as well as the service re-routing during the third quarter of 2021, for the duration of seven to nine months, where both contracts are valued at BD 8 million.
