The contract involves designing the infrastructure for all the facilities and developments within the marina.

Once complete it is expected to have more than 3,000 residences consisting of waterfront villas, townhouses and apartments. It will also have commercial and recreational facilities.

The marina itself will be designed to accommodate more than 300 boats and yachts.

The overall development is owned by the Durrat Khaleej al-Bahrain Company, in which the government of Bahrain and Kuwait Finance House each hold a 50 per cent stake.
