Bahraini developer Diyar Al Muharraq announced this week that work on its Dragon City project is progressing ahead of schedule

The main structural framework of the Dragon Mall and the 6000sqm Asian Dining Street in Dragon City has been completed in advance of its target date, drawing praise from Diyar Al Muhharraq?s CEO, Dr Maher Al Shaer.

Set in the southwest corner of the ongoing Diyar Al Muharraq megacity project, the 115,000sqm Dragon City is being constructed by Bahraini firm Nass Contracting, whose work rate Dr Al Shaer described as ?impressive?.

The Chinese-themed retail complex - which contains around 750 retail spaces, 4,500sqm of warehouse space and car parking for some 1,500 vehicles - will be managed by Chinamex and provide a direct platform for the sale of Chinese goods.

Dr Al Shaer said, ?Dragon City is a hugely significant part of the Diyar Al Muharraq project and aims to hold the same position in the Kingdom of Bahrain as a whole as well, contributing in substantial degrees to the tourism and trade sectors.?

Dr Al Shaer added, ?With the main structural framework of Dragon Mall and the Asian Dining Street having already been built, the rest of the construction work should be completed also on target.?

Work on the project began in May 2014 and it is scheduled for completion in June 2015.
