Adding Mixed Use to Cairo's Sprawling Suburbs

Developers in Egypt are looking to bring mixed-use developments to Cairo's sprawling suburbs.

Developers SODIC crafted plans back in 2006 for the mixed-use developments, which take on a large footprint.

"The two projects together will cover 2,060,000 square meters of land offering a healthy mix of residential, business and commercial properties.

True to their names, the two projects are located respectively East and West of Cairo, 50 km apart. Eastown is situated in Katameya, New Cairo while Westown is at the center of Sheikh Zayed, Sixth of October City. Both projects entailed extensive preliminary research in sustainability and urban planning to ensure their quality in the long-run."
