Qatari Diar is developing the Nile Corniche Towers, a twin tower real estate project on the north end on the Corniche Road, Cairo.

The development will cover a 9,400 sq. m. area and will consist of 2 residential towers (comprising 299 rooms and 211 apartments), a retail atrium, a conference space, a business center, 4 restaurants, a pool, a spa, and a fitness center.

The project will be developed in phases. Phase 1 includes the foundation works and the development of a 4-storeyed underground parking facility. Details of other phases are not revealed yet.

Michael Graves Design Group is the project consultant.

In April 2008, execution of phase 1 started. The project is expected to be completed in 2011.

I hope people will have enough money to use these things :(
Yeah, the average Egyptian definitely can't afford anything in these towers, but that doesn't mean theres no demand. Remember this project includes a Hotel, Appartments, Retail and Office Space. Egyptian would probably use the retail and the office space alot, whereas tourists will definitely use the hotel and appartments.

Yes the nile tower and st. regis are two different projects. However, St. Regis is between Conrad (which has a hilton also on the same block) and the ahli towers - I made a mistake in my previous post.

The orascom towers are relatively far from the action. My bad.

This project is particularly important. The St.Regis is probably the most exclusive hotel in the world, so for them to open one up in Cairo, means they've got a big market. Btw, this is the first St.Regis in the middle east.
