+Cassia's winning entry competition for this 97,422 M2 mixed-use development located on a reclaimed sea-fronting plot of 6,530 M2 in Bahrain won first prize.

The site is situated across the street from the ongoing construction of the Bahrain City Centre Mall and in close proximity to Reef Island and the Bahrain Financial Harbour. Al Seef District is home to one of the largest concentrations of commercial Malls in the GCC and fast becoming one of the premium residential and commercial destinations of the Kingdom.

The project consists of 3 interconnected towers set on a raised urban plaza with street retail outlets along the pavement and public food and beverage outlets within the base of each of the three main towers. The tallest tower accommodates a 288 key four star hotel, itself connected to a lower annex structure that contains the front of house, lobby and other public amenities required. The two other towers house 130 short-term and 193 long-term suites that are accessed independently of one another for convenience and security. The hotel function occupies the western side of the plot and consists of a sizable ground floor lobby, foyer and public amenities, including a feature bar outlet. The back of house and hotel management occupies the ground floor and part of the first basement, as well as parts of the mezzanine where an executive lounge and all day dining facility is located. There are 9 levels of suites and 27 floors with standard and larger rooms. Mechanical floors are strategically located at the bottom and top parts of the tower. The Business Centre, Gym, Spa and enclosed swimming pool discreetly occupy the hotel annex block.
