Bab Al Bahr - Rabat, Morocco


Strategically located in the Bouregreg Valley, where the Bouregreg River meets the Atlantic Ocean, Bab Al Bahr is a 50-50 joint venture development between Al Maabar and Agence de Bouregreg. It is a diverse, mixed-use development consisting of residential complexes, hotels, leisure areas, office spaces, shops and art galleries.

Each component blends innovative design and architecture with the region’s ancient art forms and Arab-Andalusian lifestyle, giving both residents and visitors a prime view of the Tour Hassan, the Oudayas and the ancient city of Rabat and Salé – all of which are the capital’s key historical sites.

Destined to become the benchmark for well considered mixed-use developments throughout Morocco, this breathtaking site is built on the values instilled in all Al Maabar projects, thus promoting its economy and ecology for future generations.
