Bahrain-based Kooheji Development said it has joined hands with its construction unit Kooheji Contractors, to break ground on the group's new mixed-use project, Onyx SkyView, coming up on a 108,000 sq m area at Bahrain Bay.

Designed with high architectural standards, including a landscape feature with the direction of an uninterrupted Manama skyline and full sea views, the key development comprises luxury residences, offices as well as an attractive retail unit along the two sides of the project.

Onyx SkyView will be nestled in spacious grounds complete with architectural terraces of green outdoor spaces and features dedicated residents-only amenities in a double-height indoor floor as well as outdoors over a 3,800-sq-m area, said a statement from Kooheji Development.

Featuring a grand main entrance facing the Four Seasons hotel, the 53-level skyscraper boasts 435 ultra-luxury residences, 40 offices, and seven retail units. The offices are accommodated over 10 floors with four offices per floor, it added.

The groundreaking ceremony marks a significant milestone for Kooheji Development as it kickstarts a new chapter along with the Onyx SkyView's main contractor Kooheji Contractors.

The groundbreaking ceremony was attended by many of the company's board of directors, stakeholders, and members of the local community.

With the start of the construction activities, Kooheji Development is now one step closer to making this unique and exciting development a reality in Bahrain, stated the Bahraini developer.

Onyx SkyView will bring a new paradigm for elegant high-rise luxury development in Bahrain and the region of creating a modern and sustainable living experience.

Additionally, the project focuses on creating an inviting and comfortable atmosphere for its residents, with ample green spaces, comfortable living spaces, and modern amenities. With these elements, Onyx SkyView will create a luxurious living experience that is both modern and elegant, it added.

Speaking at the groundbreaking ceremony, CEO Engineer Mohamed Abdulghaffar AlKooheji said: 'We are happy to celebrate today the ground-breaking of Onyx SkyView, an iconic project in Bahrain’s skyline. And with Kooheji Contractors' expertise and experience in the construction industry, we are certain that this project will be another success story of Kooheji's legacy.'

The spacious and ultra-luxury residences at Onyx SkyView are a carefully curated collection of studios, one-, two- and 3.5-bedroom apartments combining distinctive design, and inspired lifestyle inclusions in the best layouts and space planning within the Kooheji Development residential towers portfolio, he stated.

The floor-to-ceiling windows of the residences offer panoramic views of Bahrain's skyline from the bedrooms and living spaces. New classic wooden flooring designs, cool stone finishes and panelled walls bring a natural touch to balance the impact of the expansive glazing.

The spacious floor plans can meet various customers' preferences and can be easily configured into a range of different requirements. In addition, optional and extra interior design packages will also be available to buyers, he noted.

'Our combined experience of 50 years in the real estate and construction sector, and in particular the development of high-rise luxury residential towers, will ensure that this project is completed with the highest quality standards and high-end detail finishes,' remarked Engineer AlKooheji.

Once fully operational, the project will provide a luxurious and resort-like community with unique amenities close to some of Bahrain's most renowned attractions, he said.

These attractions include the Bahrain Bay promenade, five-star hotels, the Gardens, and the seafronts. This project will provide an opportunity to experience the best that Bahrain offers in one convenient location, he added.

According to Kooheji Development, the building will be served by eight elevators and feature four car-parking levels and two basement floors offering a total 700 car parking slots.

Some of the resort-style indoor and outdoor amenities include active and passive entertainment activities zones, such as an indoor multipurpose hall, VIP lounge, café, cinema theatre, ladies' and men’s gymnasiums, play areas as well as outdoor water features including levelled decks with iconic waterfall cascades between pools.

It will also boast fitness areas with lap infinity pool, dynamic splash pads, and a lazy river surrounded by fire pits spots for the cozy family barbecue gathering, stated the Bahraini developer.

The mixed-use development also benefits from close proximity to major shopping malls and is within walking distance of the buzzing life of Bahrain Bay, it added.

Kooheji Development is further solidifying its position as a leader in the development of luxury high-rise residential towers in Bahrain, said Engineer AlKooheji.

'The company's track record of projects executed or under construction totals 14 projects, thus making it the biggest player in the real estate sector in Bahrain and one of the largest in the region. This project reinforces Kooheji Development's standing as a major player in the industry,' he added.
