There's a New Eco-City Mega Project Being Built in El-Alamein

The eco-city is meant to take over the North Coast and essentially alter it to be a more sustainable area that helps to develop Egypt's tourism, agricultural, residential, and industrial sectors.

Egypt's North Coast is set to see a "New Riviera" in the form of an eco-city project coming to life in El-Alamein that should boost the Egyptian economy, as reported by Invest-Gate. The area stretches about 48,000 feddans and should cost a total of $ 337 million. Chairman and CEO of Arabia Group Tarek Shoukri stated that the city would incorporate touristic, residential, agricultural, and industrial elements. 

The New Urban Communities Authority reports that the city will feature a plethora of different facilities including a number of 16 hotels, sports clubs, theatres, resorts, as well as a business centre, a cinema and a scientific research centre, according to Invest-Gate. The first phase of the project is set to include the establishment of an international tourism centre, galleries, a museum, and a university. 

Mona Kamel, the spokesperson of the New Urban Communities, also adds that the eco-friendly city will rely on renewable resources including a desalinisation plant and solar energy stations, which will be established by the government. In addition, 10,000 residential units, taking up 8,000 feddans, will be established during the first phase of the project.

Hussein Sabour, Chairman and CEO of Sabbour Consulting, explains that the project will be implemented in three parts: the first encompassing the opening of international hotels, the second focusing on entertainment and retail, and the third focusing on housing.
