The fully-fledged project will be developed over 30 feddans in four phases, with investments of 5 billion Egyptian pounds ($279.2 million), Edge’s vice chairman for commercial Nader Badr told Amwal Al Ghad on Tuesday.

Oia is set to include 1,280 housing units and a commercial mall on a space of 14,000 square metres, Badr said, adding that the company obtained the ministerial approval on the project during December 2018.
