Egypt’s Housing to finalise New Alamein’s phase I in 2020

Egypt’s Housing Ministry will complete the implementation of the first phase of New Alamein City project, northwest of Cairo, within 2020, said Prime Minister Moustafa Madbouly on Tuesday.

“The first phase is set to include coastal and luxury housing areas as well as a cultural and historical city, besides universities,” Madbouly said, adding that this city will comprise library, mosque, church, museum, cinemas, and hotels.

In March 2018, Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi inaugurated New Alamein city on a space of 48,000 feddans, at a cost worth two billion Egyptian pounds ($111,7 million).

New Alamein is one of the fourth generation cities being built in Egypt in some of the most up-to-date architectural styles, and is scheduled to be finalised in one-year timeframe.

The city is planned to have universities and schools as well as various services and tourist activities. It is expected to accommodate 400,000 populations.
