Nestled within the city centre of Manado and overlooking the Bunaken Marine Park, Manado Bay is a 6ha master plan designed to transform an abandoned construction site into a state-of-the-art waterfront city. Phase 1 of the development, which occupies a site area of 2.2ha, consists of a 93,000sqm retail mall, a hotel, a hospital, a school, a ballroom, a wedding chapel, government offices and three residential towers. A two-storey retail bridge connects the main podium to the existing four-star hotel and hospital across the main road, and forms a gateway to this development. High-rise towers are designed to line two curves that sweep dramatically from the dense urban fabric, opening up towards Manado Cove. Echoing the undulating coastline, the promenade serves as a vibrant activity spine enhanced by the adjacent, terraced retail podium which boasts an array of restaurants and al fresco dining options that enjoy breathtaking views of the sea.
