The international law firm Trowers and Hamlins will advise GFH Financial Group on its Harbour Row development in Bahrain.
The Harbour Row development is a $150 million mixed-use building project focused on luxury housing and shopping. It will include studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom, three-bedroom and penthouse options.
"We are very pleased to be involved in this exciting new project with one of our longstanding clients," Abdul-Haq Mohammed, head of International Real Estate at Trowers & Hamlins, said. "Despite the challenging economic conditions across the region, real estate remains an extremely important asset class. We are finding that developers are coming back to the table with plans for new projects and for the resurrection of previously dormant ones."
Mohammed will be part of the team consulting GFH, along with Sallie Bowtell and Mairead Finlay. The team will help design the overall community, brochure materials for sales and leasing, and the interaction of the development's components.
Construction began on Harbour Row this month.
