Bahrain Financial Harbour (commonly abbreviated as BFH) is a large-scale commercial development project in Manama, the capital of Bahrain.

The commercial complex is located next to the King Faisal Highway, near many popular landmarks such as the Bahrain World Trade Center, Abraj Al Lulu, and the National Bank of Bahrain. The majority of the project is being constructed on reclaimed land. The BFH project consists of multiple construction phases such as:[citation needed]

  • Bahrain Performance Center
  • Commercial East
  • Commercial West
  • Diamond Tower
  • Dhow Harbour
  • Financial Center
  • Harbour Row
  • Hotel
  • Residential North
  • Residential South

The two tallest twin-towers (Commercial East and Commercial West) are currently listed as the tallest completed towers in Bahrain, with a height of 260 m (853 ft) with 53 floors.
