New 'city' neighbour helps Cairo take the load
With the growing demand for housing and office space in the greater Cairo area, leading developer Sorouh has appointed global design firm Callison to master plan and design a 42.3 million sq ft mixed-use development just outside the city center. The new Sorouh City will house 40,000 residents and provide a balance of live, work and entertainment facilities, all within close proximity to schools, hospitals and the Cairo International Airport.
Callison’s master plan for this new integrated community features 30.7 million sq ft of residential units including townhouses and apartments with 4.3 million sq ft of office space and 1.85 million sq ft designated for retail. Dining and entertainment choices with lush parks, public squares and tree-lined boulevards are planned to provide a distinctive and vibrant aesthetic. A lake front pedestrian promenade further enhances market appeal while the interspersed green spaces, parks and water features create a lush oasis and give a dramatic identity to the urban development.
