Kooheji breaks ground on 435-unit luxury Bahrain Bay project

Kooheji Development, Bahrain’s leading real estate company, has joined hands with its key unit, Kooheji Contractors, for the groundbreaking of Onyx SkyView - the second project within its esteemed Onyx series. 
Situated in the dynamic heart of Bahrain Bay, this latest addition to the Onyx series promises to transform the skyline with an unmatched luxury design. 
Onyx SkyView boasts 435 luxury residential apartments distributed over 53 floors, in addition to 40 offices distributed over 10 floors with four offices on each floor and seven commercial stores.
The spacious and ultra-luxury residences at Onyx SkyView are a carefully curated collection of studios, one-, two- and 3.5-bedroom apartments combining distinctive design, and inspired lifestyle inclusions in the best layouts and space planning within the Kooheji Development residential towers portfolio.
The groundbreaking ceremony was attended by the company's board of directors and prominent stakeholders, signifying a new chapter in the distinguished trajectory of Kooheji Development and its construction affiliate, paving the way for another architectural masterpiece in Bahrain.
Speaking on the occasion, CEO Engineer Mohamed Abdulghaffar AlKooheji said the Onyx SkyView will be an iconic project in Bahrain’s skyline bringing a new paradigm for elegant high-rise luxury development in the kingdom and also the region of creating a modern and sustainable living experience.
"And with Kooheji Contractors at helm, we are certain that this project will be another success story of Kooheji's legacy, thanks to their expertise and experience in the construction industry," he stated. 
With the start of the construction activities, Kooheji Development is now one step closer to making this unique and exciting development a reality in Bahrain. It has already completed 10% of the construction work on the project.
"This progress is a testament to our unwavering dedication to excellence and our commitment to bringing this visionary project to life," remarked Al Kooheji.
"The completed phases of construction so far include the completion of site mobilisation, extensive excavation work, and the commencement of structured piling. This rapid development is a clear indication of our expertise in managing and executing large-scale projects with precision and efficiency," he added.
The top Bahraini developer said the project focuses on creating an inviting and comfortable atmosphere for its residents, with ample green spaces, comfortable living spaces, and modern amenities. 
Onyx SkyView will be nestled in spacious grounds complete with architectural terraces of green outdoor spaces and features dedicated residents-only amenities in a double-height indoor floor as well as outdoors over a 3,800-sq-m area.
Featuring a grand main entrance facing the Four Seasons hotel, Onyx SkyView spreads over construction area of 108,000 sq m and comprises luxury residences, offices as well as an attractive retail unit along the two sides of the project.
With these elements, Onyx SkyView will create a luxurious living experience that is both modern and elegant, he added.
Once fully operational, the project will provide a luxurious and resort-like community with unique amenities close to some of Bahrain's most renowned attractions including the Bahrain Bay promenade, five-star hotels, the gardens, and the seafronts. 
This project will provide an opportunity to experience the best that Bahrain offers in one convenient location.
The floor-to-ceiling windows of the residences offer panoramic views of Bahrain's skyline from the bedrooms and living spaces. New classic wooden flooring designs, cool stone finishes and panelled walls bring a natural touch to balance the impact of the expansive glazing.
The spacious floor plans can meet various customers' preferences and can be easily configured into a range of different requirements. 
In addition, optional and extra interior design packages will also be available to buyers. The mixed-use development also benefits from proximity to major shopping malls and is within walking distance of the buzzing life of Bahrain Bay.
AlKooheji said: "Our combined experience of 50 years in the real estate and construction sectors, and in particular the development of high-rise luxury residential towers, will ensure that this project is completed with the highest quality standards and high-end detail finishes to achieve the redefinition of the luxury of living in high-rise residential towers."
"These resort-style indoor and outdoor amenities include active and passive entertainment activities zones, such as an indoor multipurpose hall, VIP lounge, café, cinema theatre, ladies' and men’s gymnasiums, play areas as well as outdoor water features including levelled decks with iconic waterfall cascades between pools as well as fitness areas with lap infinity pool, dynamic splash pads, and a lazy river surrounded by fire pits spots for the cozy family barbecue gathering," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
