MANAMA: Fontana Infinity, the largest residential twin-tower project to be launched in Bahrain in a decade, was inaugurated yesterday under the patronage of Real Estate Regulatory Authority (Rera) chief executive Shaikh Mohammed bin Khalifa Al Khalifa in the presence of Fontana Real Estate board of directors.
Providing a luxurious resort-style living that meets the requirements of the owners and matches the sales and renting prices of the Bahraini market, Fontana Infinity is the only real estate project that provides world-class tourism facilities and services in high-rise residential towers.
With a total value of BD60 million, the project was built on a total area of 130,000sqm and consists of two towers containing 850 residential units.
More than 70pc of the units enjoy stunning sea views, and 50,000sqm of space have been allocated for amenities.
It is located on Prince Saud Al-Faisal Street in the new Juffair area.
At the official opening of Fontana Infinity, Mohammed Al Kooheji, general manager of Fontana Real Estate, said: “Today we are proud to present Fontana Infinity to reflect our experience in providing successful projects from the Fontana series. Fontana Real Estate Company’s success story began a decade ago and is being crowned today with the completion of the jewel of the crown – Fontana Infinity. We offer a strong real estate product that has been carefully designed with resort-style services, well-thought-out apartment spaces, meticulous designs and high construction quality, as well as achieving the highest quality levels and effective sustainability goals.”
Amenities include a tropical oasis of green gardens, a ‘lazy’ river and an artificial beach, in addition to the largest leisure swimming pool in Bahrain within towers.
The project also features a fully-equipped gym with the latest sports equipment and an air-conditioned indoor sports hall.
Also available are a club with a fully-equipped multi-purpose hall, a cinema hall, a video game hall, indoor and outdoor areas for children and indoor and outdoor swimming pools equipped with temperature control systems.
The interiors of units combine various modern and contemporary designs, whether in the living rooms, bedrooms or kitchens that are equipped with the latest practical storage solutions and modern electronic equipment with artistic touches that reflect luxury and modernity.
Fontana Infinity also boasts the finest bathroom sanitaryware and tiles, as well as advanced technologies and innovative methods to save water and electricity without compromising the luxury living experience.
“We have used high-quality thermal insulation glass from Swiss company, Glastroesch, to improve the thermal performance of the glass and reduce sunlight heat, thus curbing the impact of climate change and temperature rise inside the units, and reduceing the use of air conditioners and refrigeration equipment,” said Mr Al Kooheji.
“We have used a chiller system, which transfers air from handling units and passes it through cold water pipes to cool it down, and then pumping it into the building through air conditioning fans.
“This system is considered the latest in cooling high-rise buildings and is characterised by high efficiency and low electricity consumption, leading to reduced utility bills by up to 40pc, which also contributes to achieving sustainability goals by Bahrain’s real estate sector.
“The National Real Estate Plan with all its pivots, fundamentals and initiatives until 2024, will constitute an essential pillar for the real estate sector, through which it will achieve sustainable growth and offer a real estate environment based on transparency and accountability for all related parties.
“We, in the private sector, also have contribution to the plan through on-going cooperation with Rera, which aims at developing regulatory frameworks, and updating procedures and services provided.
“This is in conformity with economic transformations, technological developments in the real estate field, along with providing innovative solutions, in order to ensure that the real estate sector remains an attractive platform for investments and a guarantor of rights, thus enhancing investor confidence in this vital sector,” added Mr Al Kooheji.
