So China is building a new capital for Egypt? What does it get in return? The amount of construction reminds me of countries who discovered a lot of oil reserves. I just wonder where such a lot of money comes from, as Egypt went through a lot of trouble in the last ten years.

I also fear that this is a step to somehow "give up" the old Cairo. Instead of building all those fancy new buildings in the old city, they are built far out in the desert. Will the old Cairo be left for poor people, who can't afford living in the new city?

no. See maspero project and all social housing. They are getting rid of illegal slums in Cairo and replacing them with 21st century standards of living

The only part of this project that a Chinese company is participating in is the CBD. The rest is mainly being built by various Egyptian companies under the auspice of the state-owned company ACUD (Administrative Capital for Urban Development), which is the owner and developer of this entire project. There is also another mega-city on the rise on the north coast, New Alamein.

There is also a lot going on in Cairo right now. Check out the Egyptian forum if you're interested.

This video shows the true scale of this project. Keep in mind this is just ONE residential district out of several. I think there are some images of the U/C CBD as well towards the end, the CBD is adjacent to the R3 residential district.

R3 RESIDENTIAL DISTRICT - UPDATE
