$120m plan to rebuild Bahrain market
Posted: Sunday, April 24, 2005


A German company is bidding to revamp Bahrain's Central Market in a joint investment venture worth $120 million (BD45.3m).

Capital Municipal Council chairman Mortadha Badr said he would meet the company representatives and discuss details.

The market would be razed and rebuilt on Eastern architectural designs. The new multi-storey landmark would feature spacious car parks, central airconditioning, in addition to other investment offices. -TradeArabia News Service

Ya read it a few mins ago in the GDN, nice to see somethin is happenin about that.
Sounds great, the souq's really old, and not good'd be just wonderful to have a themed Eastern style, yet modern and new, souk...but hasn't this all been said before, sounds all too familiar...not the eastern style thing, but the whole revamp plan
Actually that revamp thing was for Bab Al Bahrain and that's a different proposal. This is for "Soog il Markezi", the legendary one :D.
Ohhhh, alrighty then, thanks for clearing that up..
