Khartoum, Sudan - Alsunut Development

From the Aug. 5th Economist:

The development that most epitomises Khartoum's new dynamism is Alsunut. Meaning "point of meeting" in Arabic, this behemoth of a residential and office project is now under construction on 65 hectares (160 acres) of land where the Blue and White Nile converge. The $4 billion project, the result of a public-private partnership between the government and DAL Group, Sudan's leading company, will transform the city by adding 63 towers varying between 15 and 35 floors in height. Over half the office space has already been sold to local and foreign companies.

The government supported genocide and mass rapes of blacks is in the western Dar Fur province, and some in the south, while the central Khartoum is relatively peaceful.

Khartoum hub contracts up for grabs
Saturday, 24 September, 2005

Construction packages on a US $4 billion business and residential development in Sudan will soon be up for grabs.

Local developer Alsunut Development Company plans to develop the new commercial facility in the centre of Khartoum city.

The Dubai office of KEO is responsible for the programme management while the consultant’s Abu Dhabi office is carrying out detailed infrastructure design.

Saudi contractors are tipped to win the lion’s share of construction work on the 2000 acre mega-project, which is located where the Blue Nile meets the White Nile.

“The client has already started work on the road base and embankments, allowing construction work to start in October, but contracts have not yet been let,” said KEO development manager, Kim McLure.

The first phase of the project includes a 160-acre central business district and the second is a 1420 acre, residential and leisure estate featuring an 18-hole golf course.

Construction on stage one has already commenced and is estimated to be complete within five years, while construction of phase two will commence in the first quarter of 2006 and is estimated to be complete within seven years.

The ‘Almogran’ development will be served by its own local authority that will give support to all investors and ensure adherence to urban design guidelines during and after the development process.

The authority will also provide a facilties manage-
ment function for the provision and up-keep of all utilities and services.

The first phase of the project includes 44 commercial plots, 18 hotel plots, 700 apartments and provision for more than 15 000 cars.

The second phase will provide for an additional 650 villas, 7236 apartments and 70 880 m2 of retail development.
Around half of the development plots in the first phase of the project have already been acquired by investors,including oil companies and hotel groups.

It is understood that the project has also generated substantial interest from potential GCC and expatriate Sudanese investors.

It sure helps that petrol money is flowing into Sudan. Oil was discovered there in 1999, economic growth has been going strong! More tall buildings to come for sure!

Oil money, contrary to popular belief, does not benefit anyone but the closest affiliates of the industry and/or the small wealthy sector of the population, or atleast this is the case in Africa.

It's a cool development though.

Guys don't be surprised by these developments: Sudan has alot of oil, gas and other natural resources and alot of investment is being poured into the country by the Indians and the Chinese. With raw material prices being high, things are looking good for many economies in this part of the world.
