Announcing the new venture, Mohamed Alabbar, the Chairman of Eagle Hills, said: “The launch of Binaa Al-Bahrain is within the efforts of His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the United Arab Emirates, and His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, to strengthen the Bahrain-UAE relations.”

The new company follows the successful projects launched by Eagle Hills, like Marassi Al-Bahrain, to meet the needs of the Bahraini society and support the kingdom’s national economic development efforts.”

Eagle Hills International is known for its diverse projects across Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, including Marassi Bahrain in Diyar Al Muharraq.
