Edamah announces completion of first phase of Bahrain edu park

Bahrain Real Estate Investment Company (Edamah), a unit of the kingdom's sovereign wealth fund Mumtalakat, has announced the completion of Phase One of the Amanat Edu Safe Park. 
 
The 16,000-sq-m facility is a first of its kind offering a one-stop solution for students and parents which will add value to education beyond school hours. 
 
According to Edamah, it will be equipped with state-of-the-art education centres and halls which will be leased for lectures, workshops, training programs, and theatre and art productions. 
 
The Park will also partner with educational institutes to offer a range of extra-curricular activities in areas such as liberal arts, technology, and robotics, as well as dedicated special needs educational programs, it stated. 
 
Amanat Edu Safe Park senior representative Sheikh Mohammed bin Khalifa A Khalifa said: "It will be an important addition to the Isa Town Educational Area, extending students’ learning experience beyond school hours through a variety of enriching and educational activities."
 
"The project incorporates our more than 30 years of experience in education to create a one-stop solution which meets the needs of the entire family and offers a nurturing environment conducive to learning and personal development," stated Sheikh Mohammed.
 
Parents, he stated, will be able to take advantage of the time spent waiting for their children by earning certifications in vocational skills programs supported by the Tamkeen Training and Wage Support Scheme.
 
In response to a shortage of retail or commercial offerings in the area, the project also has business centres, and service centres for the further convenience of parents and students. 
 
The Park features scenic green spaces with jogging tracks, walkways, and outdoor scientific installations, which create an atmosphere conducive to learning, he added. 
 
The project is supported by Edamah, who conducted extensive initial research to assess the area’s market needs. 
 
Edamah CEO Amin Alarrayed said: "We are especially supportive of endeavors in the education sector and will continue in our unreserved support of Amanat, and their unique approach to learning and development. Congratulations are due to Dr Shaikha May bint Sulaiman Al Otaibi, whose energy and vision is at the heart of the project."
 
"We are pleased to announce that construction of the retail component is now complete, and units have been handed over to tenants for fit out works. We look forward to delivering this pioneering project to the people of Bahrain in August," stated Alarrayed.
 
The second phase of the Amanat Edu Safe Park is expected to be completed in August, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
