Before you the whole "Middle East*" will be Dubaified, I think that's a good thing.

* I know, technically Tunisia isn't part of the Middle East, but you get the point.

Looks like Africa wants to feature in the skyscraper boom, too... the tallest highrises on this continent are still from the 1970's (Carlton Centre Office Tower, South Africa, 222m). And Tunis seems to have no important highrises at all so far.

Now this here is not about a planned single landmark, it's about a massive project like a whole new city... the cluster around Daubai Towers is only a part of this - watch that skyline to the right with twin towers, that remind me of Emirates Towers and could also reach to supertall height. Here the inflationary "brand name" fits well: Dubai Towers. Nice design btw, following the trend of tall curved glass towers.

So will Tunis really go Dubai and look like this in 10 years? I have some doubts, considering the US-banking crises, and maybe this plan is just a hype. But let's see what happens...

Well actually I honestly believe that Tunis's skyline is by far the best in the Maghreb ..as far as density Height etc... Nothing to be proud of but when you compare it with Algiers or Casa that hold almost the double of Tunis population it gives you an idea of the potential of our real estate market






Now back to the topic :

Well yes it s part of a massive project that will cost up to 25 Billions US ..

The Med Gate is the biggest investments of an Emirati real estate company outside of UAE and will take up to 17 years ..

now the whole project is handle by the SAMA ECH wich is a joint venture between sama dubai and EC harris.

regarding the masterplan it s typically a Sama dubai project ...very similar to the Lagoons for instance . But a portion of the project will offer houses for the middle class too wich is a very good thing .

the Tunisian government made a lot of efforts and sacrifices to get this kind of project and there is a demand in the South med area ..

for the towers there 3 towers according to the CEO of sama ( back in march ) two twin towers of 80 flrs very similar to the emirates towers indeed and another one for mix use of 50. Now the master plan was approved in July of this year by the Tunisian government and they asked for two major modifications ; the design should respect the cultural heritage of Tunisia and second : offer houses to the middle class . In return the Tunisian government will build a bridge to connect the whole project and will take care also of the new Transit system


The project will be one of the major attraction of the next Cityscape in Dubai according to sama dubai again so let s wait and see

Well the real estate market in Tunisia is booming and the actual financial crisis has not affected our economy for one reason ,the virtual market does not exist so we did not have the speculations that occured in most of the western countries ...

Sama Dubai, the international real estate investment and development arm of Dubai Holding, today announced the opening of its Marketing and Sales centre for the US$25 billion (AED95billion/TND31 billion) Mediterranean Gate project, developed in partnership with the Tunisian government in the capital city of Tunis.

Located on Republic Avenue (Z4 Road) at Saint Gobain, the Marketing and Sales centre will provide potential investors with a preview of the landmark development, allowing them to gauge first-hand the magnitude of the project that is expected to infuse fresh economic opportunities and facilitate the growth of Tunisia’s tourism and allied sectors. The centre will remain open from 3.00pm-8.00pm daily.

The Tunisian Government approved the masterplan for the Mediterranean Gate project where infrastructure work has been progressing since December 2007. Scheduled for completion in 14 phases, the development is designed to host international firms, premium luxury hotels and leading retailers as well as a diverse range of residential buildings and recreational and sports facilities.

Developed by Sama Dubai, Mediterranean Gate shares the vision of the Tunisian government for an inclusive, all-encompassing city, which will open doors for new companies, services and projects to further boost Tunisia’s diverse economic sectors.

Farhan Faraidooni, Executive Chairman of Sama Dubai, said: “Mediterranean Gate will be a unique project, designed to reflect the integrity of its landscape, culture and heritage. It will cater to all sections of the society and represent a benchmark for sustainable development in the region when completed.

“The launch of the Marketing and Sales Centre marks the next phase of development for Mediterranean Gate which is already registering progress in infrastructure works. The centre will initially showcase the crucial components of this ambitious project, ahead of the first sales release around mid-2009.”

Mediterranean Gate will be fully integrated into the city of Tunis and include demarcated residential districts, commercial and leisure segments, a central business district (CBD), waterfront resorts, marinas, a golf-resort and shopping malls. The project is being managed by Sama-ECH, a subsidiary of Sama Dubai and a joint venture with one of the top global project management companies, EC Harris.

Mediterranean Gate is anticipated to drive job creation, employing about 350,000 people and attracting over 100,000 visitors every day. The development will also serve as a hub for IT and service companies seeking Tunisia’s qualified and trained manpower
