The Avenues-Bahrain ... expansion work is now under way.

The Avenues Company, a unit of Al Sorouh Management Company, has achieved a major construction milestone on its expansion project in Bahrain by clocking one million safe hours without any Lost-Time-Injury (LTI).

Work on Phase Two of The Avenues-Bahrain – the first commercial and leisure mall of its kind in the kingdom with a unique 1.5-km-long waterfront – kicked off in September last year. With around 20 per cent work already accomplished, it is on track for completion by Q2 2024. Leading Bahraini construction group Nass is the main contractor for the project.

Following the expansion, The Avenues-Bahrain will boost its leasable space by 41,000 sq m, which will include 244 units, two entertainment areas, an ice rink, a supermarket, as well as a basement parking, thus bringing its total leasable area to approximately 80,000 sq m.

The Avenues Company said the key safety milestone highlights the commitment to applying the highest safety standards at work sites.

The successful completion of the project will cement The Avenues-Bahrain as the largest development in Bahrain Bay.
