GFH Properties has announced that its prime real estate asset Harbour Heights has been named Bahrain’s best residential high-rise development at the Africa & Arabia Property Awards 2021-2022. The award programme is now in its 28th year.

Completed in 2021 and now dominating Manama’s waterfront skyline, Harbour Heights is the kingdom’s most advanced mixed use residential, medical, retail, hospitality, and leisure complex.

Spread over a 35,900-sq-m area, the three towers that make up Harbour Heights are positioned at the heart of Bahrain Financial Harbour, featuring a built-up area of more than 250,000 sqm.

GFH Properties said its trio of towers was part of the group's ongoing strategy to build a diverse portfolio of international, high-quality real estate assets, including new acquisitions of prime properties in strategic geographies.

'Harbour Heights is the jewel of our property portfolio, and we are very proud that it has been recognised by one of the region’s most prestigious and well-established property award programmes,' remarked Ahmed Khalfan, the head of marketing of GFH Properties.

'Our flagship residential destination has huge potential and reflects GFH Properties’ strategy in the real estate sector. As a group, we favour resilient investments in assets that are positioned for significant growth,' said Khalfan.

Judged by an independent panel of over 80 industry experts focusing on design, quality, service, innovation, originality, and commitment to sustainability, the Africa & Arabia Property Awards recognise the best properties in the region across 45 categories.

The panel was chaired by Lord Caithness, Lord Best, and Lord Waverley, members of the House of Lords in the UK Parliament. The top winners in each region will automatically be entered into the overall international awards, culminating in an awards ceremony at the end of the year.

'With some of the tallest towers in the country, Harbour Heights provides a world-class destination for people with the desire to live a luxuirous urban lifestyle,' stated Khalfan.

'Despite the pandemic, the prime residential spot is demonstrating continued significant demand with a significant portion of units occupied. A true architectural icon, Harbour Heights will not only continue to be a property benchmark for the Arab region, but a long-term home for hundreds of nationals and expats,' he added.
