The hype is already building up. This was the scene at the office of Misr Italia Properties in Cairo after the announcement.

The main cathedral, set to be the largest in the Middle East and Africa, is nearly finished. It is currently being prepared to host Christmas celebrations on January 7th, lead by Pope Tawadros.

UPDATE: Nativity of Christ Cathedral

Egypt's Copts prepare for opening of cathedral in new administrative capital - LINK



Quote:
As Egypt's Copts prepare to dedicate a cathedral in the country's new administrative capital on Saturday night, the head of the Coptic Church has hailed president Abdel Fattah El Sisi for following through on his pledge to build it.

[...]

“This Christmas we will be praying in the new cathedral which has been named 'The Nativity of Christ',” he added, referring to the Coptic Orthodox Christmas which takes place on January 7.

Saturday's Christmas Eve dedication mass will be held in the cathedral’s chapel and attended by about 3,000 people, including Mr El Sisi and representatives of the awkaf (religious endowments) ministry and Al Azhar, the main seat of Sunni Muslim theology and scholarship.

[...]

It was built by Egyptian construction giant, Orascom, under the supervision of the armed forces's engineers corps. Twin 200-foot bell towers — known as lighthouses in Egypt because they are illuminated at night — flank the cathedral which, unlike churches in the rest of the country, also has a dedicated parking garage.

Egypt's largest construction and engineering firms are still putting the final touches on the neighbouring Al Fattah Al Alim Mosque and will soon break ground on a museum to house Pharaonic, Islamic and Coptic artefacts in an embodiment of Mr El Sisi's vision of Egypt as a religiously tolerant society.

[...]

Here's a more complete render of the cathedral and surroundings, from the Egyptian subforum.

Opposite the cathedral complex shall be the new capital's main mosque. Both religious complexes are built close to each other to foster religious cooperation.

I see some elements of the ancient Egyptian architecture, namely Hapshepsut's temple interpreted here. Is it a deliberate decision? I think it is fitting for such an institutional structure.

Most of us think the designs are intentionally based on ancient antiquity; the government buildings certainly ascribe to the 'monumental' aspect of Egyptian architecture.

Additionally, some renders also show the capital being decked with features such as statues, obelisks, and Egyptian motifs.

Definitely deliberate. It's also a very typical style for government buildings in Egypt. Like the Supreme Constitutional Court in Cairo:

I can see the resemblance. I also just noticed that the pool in front of the cabinet building has the "Egypt The Future"-ankh symbol on it.
