Al Jadriyah Lake development is located in the heart of Baghdad on the banks of the Tigris River. The site was originally a water park development with a large man-made water body traversed by a elegant observatory restaurant. The new master plan retains the original water park theme and extends the development potential with residential, retail, F&B and hospitality components to broaden the demographic appeal and income base. The large water body was revitalized to provide passive boating opportunities as well as romantic evening dining whilst floating down the lake. Terraced townhouse with private boat dock flank both the Tigris River bank and the lake to capitalize on the waterfront exposure. The retail, F&B, amusement park and hotel create a linear border to the inner lake edge as the activity hub that has a direct connection to the city.
