To be honest I'm not a fan of this development. Sprawl is not a good way to go, especially for Egypt, when we could be using this land for more productive purposes. Golf courses, wide boulevards, and business parks... not my prefernce.

The renders look nice though, and capacity of 600,000 people is HUGE.

As a matter of fact i think its the perfect development, theres a range of housing, and if the schools, and hospitals etc. match up to the renders then i think, there will be great infrastructure for the New Cairo area.


Things is, the former Chairman of The Talaat Moustafa Group was sentenced to death today:

EGYPT. Egyptian construction magnate Hesham Talaat Moustafa was sentenced to death on Thursday for the murder of Lebanese singer Suzanne Tamim in Dubai, court sources said.

Moustafa, former chairman of the Talaat Moustafa Group and a prominent politician, had been accused of paying security man Muhsen el-Sukkari US$2 million to stab Tamim to death at her house in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates on 28 July last year.

Sukkari was also sentenced to death in the case, and the men's files were referred to Egyptian religious authorities for review, as normal in capital cases in Egypt.

The arrest of Moustafa in September, after weeks of speculation about the case, hit Talaat Moustafa shares. They closed on Wednesday at LE 5.03 Egyptian (US$0.89) per share, off a year low of LE 2.52 hit in March.

The indictment had accused Sukkari of killing Tamim after tricking her into opening the door of her Dubai apartment by posing as a representative of the building owners. He then attacked her with a knife.

It accused Moustafa of participating in the crime through "incitement, agreement and assistance" in the killing.

The evidence included tape recordings of telephone calls between Moustafa and Sukkari, security video footage from the Dubai apartment and DNA from the bloodied clothes that Sukkari was accused of leaving close to the scene of the crime.

Moustafa, who was born in 1959, gave up the chairmanship of the Talaat Moustafa Group to his brother Tarek. Tamim, who died at the age of 30, rose to fame after winning the top prize in a television show in 1996.
Do you thin the project will be affected :dunno:

This is my problem with it:





Automobile dependant suburbs. Waste of resources. International oil prices are not going to decrease in the medium/long term. In fact, they have increased by 60% since December, while the world is in recession. When the economy picks up, these kind of suburbs will become very costly to service.

Madinaty City Centre

Challenged to carve out a self-sustaining community from an empty landscape, Perkins Eastman was commissioned by the Talaat Moustafa Group to develop the master plan for a 106-hectare (262-acre) urban center. The Madinaty City Center is envisioned as an integrative network of open and green spaces that establish connective links between neighbourhood nodes and functional identities. Iconic architecture is utilized to establish visual landmarks and anchor points in a flexible plan that can stand alone or integrate with the surrounding development.

Divided into three major zones, the first of the phased master plan—Downtown or the financial hub—comprises a dense mix of residential units, office complexes, and high-end retail. Residential towers border the periphery of the site and provide a transition from the looser weave of the surrounding area to the dense urban fabric. An active program of street-level high-end retail, pedestrian promenades, city squares, cafés, and restaurants foster an energized urban center.

A centrepiece hotel anchors the southern end of Downtown and provides a point of reference for the start of the Civic Spine—the second major zone. The Civic Spine connects the Uptown to Downtown districts, and serves as the communicative link. Varied landscaping schemes, cobblestone streets, sleek water elements, and a program of cafés, sports fields, and neighborhood retail invites active participation.

The final component—the Uptown area— comprises a mix of residential, retail and office buildings, convention center, town squares, and a connective network of open space. In addition, a program of galleries and museums flanks the central park at the southeastern edge, establishing Uptown as the cultural district of Madinaty.











Damn, I cant wait for this project to finish!! :banana:

Well if they are going to be giving apartments and villas for free then sure why not have this project, because seriously middle/low income will never afford this. nice green places but most people living in here will either be really high class egyptians or other nationalities including Saudis, kuwaitis, Qataris etc...

2023 ! are you kidding me =O
