UAE developer Eagle Hills has appointed a main contractor for a new scheme at the Marassi al-Bahrain masterplanned community.

Both projects will be developed within the Marassi al-Bahrain development, which upon completion, will be home to 22,000 residents with a total of 6,000 residences and a total retail space of 250,000 square metres, adding 1,200 jobs to the area.
The project is being developed 20 minutes from Manama International Airport, in the Diyar al-Muharaq area.
