Much better than the lifeless modern buildings in Dubai. Not as glamorous but there's a reason why many would choose Vienna over New York. Sick of all the commie looking copy and paste architecture.

Example.



This is what's supposed to be the "Ministries area".


There are more pictures in the album, but don't know if I should post them all, I only made my account to bring that page to the attention of the posters here tbh lol
Welcome to the forum and thanks for sharing, I hope you decide to stick around.

Those renders are definitely legit. The bottom picture shows the cabinet building which is already being constructed according to that design. I guess they fine-tuned the 5+ UDC one.

I'm looking at these two particular renders. Looks like the cabinet building will be adjacent to a plaza of some sort. I suppose the parliament building could be on the other side of the plaza. Each one of those blocks is going to be a ministry.

They're building one. They still haven't finished it yet.

It's under construction as well.


It's just that construction of the cathedral was streamlined to be able to host the Midnight Mass.

Apparently the complex will include a papal residence and other church-related buildings.

Seems very unlikely they did though given how fast they were constructed.

I found this article that says the parliament will have a "two storey garage".

It just says it's inside, doesn't mention if it's underground.

But if you look at the renders you can actually see a road leading underground. It just boggles my mind why they'd have both above ground and underground parking. Above ground parking eats up too much space and it makes everything look so suburban.

They said they're building 1,000 of those. Here's a look at the inside -

This must be Capital Heights, I didn't know they started construction already. Looks like the renders. These aren't stand-alone villas though, more like row houses.

Question for you guys. Do you want this thread to be dedicated to the first phase only and then open a separate thread for the second phase once it begins? Or do you want this to be a universal thread for all things "new capital"? Or at least for all the phases, I think, in either case, it makes sense to make separate threads for individual projects in the new capital like the tallest tower in Egypt, or Capital Heights, Il Bosco etc. So far we've been using this thread for all projects in the new capital, even those that technically do deserve their own threads, which is practical but not so good for keeping track.

In the future, its defiantly a good idea to divide up everything into separate threads but given that we're only in the first phase, having one thread for everything makes it a lot easier to keep track as you said. I'm happy with whatever really.

One thing for sure is that this board is dead. We need more people posting. People that actually live in Egypt.
