From November 2016 to September 2017, Menighetti took part in the realisation of the waterfront development, in parallel to the “urban guidelines” mission it was assigned with. The development concerned 42 km of coastline between Qal’at al-Bahrain and Muharraq via Manama.
The mission was broken down into three stages:
Identify the development priorities and programming intentions regarding the waterfront. Meet the local real estate players and the stakeholders of the development projects taking place along the coastline.
Programme 4 structuring facilities and 14 complementary facilities
Collaborate closely with a team of town planners (AREP Ville) during the design process.
Menighetti works with AREP Ville on the urban programming aspects of Bahrain's regional planning strategy as part of the mission assigned to the BFTPI joint venture (Bahrain French Town Planning Initiative).
