New Mansoura City promises to be a modern community for people of all income levels, and an upgrade to the governorate's capital, Mansoura.
Right by the northern shores of the Mediterranian Sea, in the rural governorate of Damietta, a massive urban undertaking has been in the works since 2017. New Mansoura City promises to be a modern community for people of all income levels, and an upgrade to the governorate's capital, Mansoura, which sits just 54 km away and is connected by a 15 minute railway commute. And now, in May 2021, the first phase of this urban development is declared to be 98% complete.
The first phase of New Mansoura City is approximately 2,063 feddans, and will make up 40% of the city's total area. It will have 25,000 residential units built with modern architectural designs, including 196 Sakan Masr residential buildings for middle-income Egyptians with 4,704 housing units, the New Mansoura Language School with 33 classrooms, a medical centre built with medical tourism in mind, and eight commercial markets.
New Mansoura City also features its own Corniche, with walkways, playgrounds, internet areas, cafeterias and a bike lane over 4.2 km.
