CAIRO, 10 January 2021 – The government of Egypt on Sunday started delivering residential units at the new Administrative Capital (NAC) of the country.
Pictures of the first flat buildings delivered were posted on social media Sunday by Hani Younes, a spokesperson for the Egyptian Cabinet.
The second phase of Sakan Misr housing project in Badr City will be made up of 376 building comprising 9,024 residential units, according to NAC plans.
Last month, the project general manager, Mohamed Tolba, told reporters that the construction of the buildings was 92 percent completed, with 70 percent of all roads already paved.
Tolba said a total of 150 bukildings are ready for residents to move in, promising that the rest of the buildings will be completed by the end of March 2021.
The complex under completion includes facilities like schools, sports fields, shopping centers, hospitals and health centers, among others.
The Regional Ring Road is a stone throw – barely one kilometer – from Badr City which will also served by three stations of the under progress electric train which connects Badr City to Alamein on the coasts of the Mediterranean and Ain Sokhna on the coasts of the Red Sea.
Contracors are in a race against time to finish the residences of employees which are currently under construction near Badr City.
Only 40,000 of Egypt’s nearly 7.5 million employees will move to the New Capital.
