State-of-the-art complex The Terminal opened in May in fine dining area “Block 338”in Adliya
Edamah, the real estate arm of the Bahrain government, has signed an agreement with international restaurant company Food Fund International (FFI) to become a tenant in the BHD 7.6 million state-of-the-art complex “The Terminal”. FFI has developed a portfolio of well-known restaurant brands across the globe that include The Meat Co. and Attic, which currently reside within the “Block 338” area. FFI will open the first Nikkie Cuisine (Japanese- Peruvian) restaurant concept named Clay in the largest of the ten spacious units available in the complex. This unit represents 20% of the occupancy of the leasing area at The Terminal, which has seen high demand since completion.
Strategically located in the vibrant fine dining “Block 338”, Edamah’s The Terminal was carefully designed with the aim of providing a full-service solution for visitors to the busiest part of Adliya, bringing together dining, retail, and convenient smart parking all under one roof. The Terminal provides visitors access to over 330 car parking spaces and 10 outlets on a land area of 4,801 square meters.
The Terminal is the latest in a series of recent developments in Bahrain which have contributed to the strong performance of the Bahrain real estate sector, which grew by 7.6% during Q4 2017 due to high demand for residential, tourism and retail developments in the Kingdom. The landmark building is an emerging pathway focused on developing a culinary hub within the Block 338 area, providing a channel for new businesses and local entrepreneurs that fit within the district. The terminal will house tenants from food magnates and entrepreneurs in Bahrain as well as provide ample carpark spaces that ease parking in the area. This will create time savings while further enhancing visitors’ experience at Block 338.
Mr. Amin Alarrayed, Chief Executive Officer of Edamah said: “We’re delighted to welcome FFI as a new tenant in our state-of-the-art complex “The Terminal”. Located in one of the most sought-after areas of Adliya, FFI’s new restaurant is set to benefit from major demand from locals and tourists in a location growing steadily to become the go-to destination for culture and dining in the Kingdom. We look forward to welcoming more new tenants to this iconic architectural landmark.” On their end, FFI CEO Johnny Tomazos stated: “we are eager to expand our presence in the Bahraini market and look forward to introducing Clay within such a premium location.”
