Bahrain Bay Master Plan
Conceived in response to widespread economic development in the Middle East, this sweeping master plan is designed to propel growth in Bahrain and its capital, Manama. It is also intended to serve as a model for future development throughout the region.
The 432,000-square-meter site consists of an island connected to the mainland via causeways. With strong radial organization, the new district is bisected by a mixed-use boulevard that terminates at both ends with grand public spaces. SOM’s plan calls for a variety of buildings and amenities, including residential towers, cultural venues, an upscale hotel, and a verdant park. The area is brimming with potential, particularly given its close proximity to the city’s international airport and the Bahrain World Trade Center.
