United Tower at Bahrain Bay spins its way through next stage

The United Tower, one of the most watched and prestigious projects at Bahrain Bay, has announced the completion of its external construction works with the fixing of the last piece of its façade panel.

Uniquely designed as a twirling structure, this magnificent development extending up to 50 floors is already creating a buzz at Bahrain Bay, known for its many iconic structures, its sophisticated design and landscaping. Mr Ahmed Al Qaed, Managing Director, Cooperation Investment House SPC, a well known personality in the industry and the man behind the United Towers project, expressed his pleasure at the pace of progress in completing the project, “We are very thankful to Allah that we announce the completion of the external works to the United Tower as we proceed to fix the last panel of the façade today. The twisting counter clockwise structure undoubtedly involved flawless planning and methodical execution”.

The United Tower will house the five-star Wyndham Grand Collection Manama over 14 floors of its 50-storey mixed use development combining five star authentic hospitality with modern corporate office space thus offering the best destination for business and leisure. The Wyndham Grand Collection is a fast growing ensemble of hotels that represent one-of-a-kind experiences in key destinations with refined accommodation, attentive service and relaxed surroundings. Benefitting from a strategic waterfront location within Bahrain Bay, the tower rises from an octagonal floor plate, twisting counter clockwise that boasts uninterrupted 360 degree views of the bay and the Corniche.

With the external façade now complete, the United Tower will undergo extensive internal fit outs equipped with modern sophisticated facilities serving corporate requirements. This will be soon followed by landscaping works around the building adding to its image of a prestigious location.

Located at the Bahrain Bay, the United Tower is one of the high-rise buildings in this USD2.5 bln, mixed-use waterfront development that also includes other renowned brands such as Four Seasons Hotel, Arcapita, the group head office of Al Baraka Bank and the J W Marriott Hotel.

Commenting on this new development, the CEO of Bahrain Bay added, “We congratulate Mr. Ahmed Al Qaed and CIH on achieving the completion of the external works on the United Tower. This unique structure stands out now as an architectural landmark and is a proud addition to Bahrain Bay. We have worked alongside the developer and their architects in a timely schedule following the highest standards that conform to our visionary Masterplan. With the utilities infrastructure now in place, the United Tower can plug in to avail the water, electricity and district cooling facilities without delay. We look forward to steady progress in completing the remaining works and eagerly anticipate the scheduled opening later this year.”
