Global real estate advisor Savills said it has secured a major management services contract from Bahrain World Trade Centre (BWTC), the kingdom’s premier landmark property.
Located prominently next to the King Faisal Highway, BWTC is Bahrain’s iconic business and commercial property address, including Moda Mall, location of many of the world's most famous fashion and retail brands, providing a unique customer experience all year round.
As per the deal, Savills will provide property management, leasing and facilities management and marketing services, covering its entire retail and commercial portfolio which includes the state-of-the-art office towers and Moda Mall, Bahrain’s only luxury shopping and dining destination.
