Egypt’s real estate developer firm Misr Italia Properties said Wednesday that it has purchased its second land plot over 110 feddans worth 1.6 billion Egyptian pounds ($89.3 million) in the state’s New Administrative Capital.

Located 40km (24.8 miles) east of Cairo, the anticipated new capital city is part of the Egyptian government’s plan to expand urban areas to deal with the state’s rapid population growth and improve the nation’s infrastructure.

The new city will be a 270-square-mile hub with 21 residential districts to accommodate five million people. It will feature 1,250 mosques and churches, a 5,000-seat conference center, nearly 2,000 schools and colleges, over 600 medical facilities and a park that is projected to be the world’s largest.
