Al Marsa Floating Island
The romance and beauty of Venice is also being replicated in Bahrain with the construction of the ‘Al Marsa Floating Island’ at an approximate cost of US$40 million, replete with canals and gondolas. The artificial island, which is part of the Amwaj Islands project, will measure approximately 28,000 square metres and includes 325 chalets.

The Floating City is designed to have a series of canals where boats can cruise and even park beside their own back garden where the level of water is maintained within 50 centimetres 'rise and fall' by a sector-lock gate located at the south entrance of the island adjacent to the proposed Yacht Club.

Al Marsa Islands will be more exclusive than the main resort with stringent, gated security. The compound-style development will include its own swimming pools, tennis courts and a small supermarket. The design of the residences will put a modern slant on a traditional theme – fusing the contemporary with elements from local Bahraini architecture. The front elevations incorporate Bahraini style with narrow windows and elaborate feature doorways.

ya it think to be honest with you, the height is good, cause if you have one really tall tower, it will look awkward. After all, this is good for the area near muharraq, as everythin else is in manama.

i don't want to have a really tall tower, but a landmark 200+ should be built
many people don't like the idea, like the pinnacle on palm island. ok the pinnacle is exaggerated as hell, but i like the idea. if they call it the 8th wonder of the world, there has to be another icon on this project. so a 200+ tower is justified and would be the right thing for such a massive project

the same about the pearl

well the harbour is being marketed properly, this one had it's share of media promotions, less than the financial harbour, but you know, the good new is that it's 60% sold.
