SSH Bahrain has been appointed to design the Ras al-Barr Resort by PK Development Company.
SSH won the contract through a tendering process, after competing with other local and international consultancies, to provide masterplanning, architecture and engineering consultancy services for the new 1.5 square-kilometre waterfront project located south of the Durrat al-Bahrain development.
Located on several islands of reclaimed land, it will offer a range of waterfront housing options, themed hotels, retail and souqs, public waterfront areas together with community facilities, schools, parklands, and sport facilities.
It will be developed in two phases. The first phase is an open-gated development and consists of three islands comprising small-to-medium-sized residential clusters, waterfront apartment blocks, a souk, a yacht club, four hotels, schools, a commercial area, a mosque, and beach area.
The second phase is a gated community development comprising medium-to-large-sized, mix-spread, waterfront residential properties on 14 islands.
PK Development Company is a joint venture of Kuwait Finance House and private investors.
