"Based on this objective, Bloom Central has been planned to further bridge the gaps in the hospitality sector. Upon completion which is expected by Q1 2014, the development will significantly complement the Bloom portfolio that revolves around building communities."
Bloom Central is financed by Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank.
