Project timeline for the New Administrative Capital
Egypt and Alabbar’s Capital City Partners have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).
In 2015, Capital City Planners, located in the United Arab Emirates, and the Egyptian government signed a memorandum of understanding to work on a proposal to build a contemporary, new city in Egypt to replace the old.
The announcement was met with enthusiasm, but suspicion persisted, which was confirmed only a few months later when the MOU was withdrawn by the government of the North African country, alleging a lack of progress by Capital City Planners.
Egypt signed a new deal with China State Construction Engineering Corporation
Later that year, China State Construction Engineering Corporation (CSCEC) signed a new contract for the construction of buildings for government ministries and agencies, as well as the president’s office. The Chinese company would construct a new parliament complex, 12 government buildings, a convention center, and an exhibition area, among other things.
As demand for other amenities like as housing and shopping grows, these facilities will serve as the core around which the rest of the city will build.

The Ministry of Housing, Utilities, and Urban Communities gave CSCEC a contract to construct the Central Business District (CBD) a total area of 1,900,000 square meters in the NAC.

Wael al-Nashar, Chairman of the Egyptian Company for Airports, said the new aviation hub will serve residents of East Cairo, Al Shorouk City, Heliopolis, as well as the cities and governorates along the Canal, as well as contribute to the development of the Suez and Ain Sokhna ports, where logistics and industrial zones will be established in the future.
The New Administrative Capital Airport is described in detail.
The New Administrative Capital Airport, whose main terminal building is situated on a 5,000-square-meter plot of ground with 45 service and administrative buildings around it, can accommodate 300 passengers per hour, reducing the pressure on Cairo International Airport.
The facility also features 8 airplane parking areas, each with enough space for 500 automobiles and 20 buses. The airport is well-designed, with a 3,650-meter runway that can accommodate large aircraft, and its layout provides for future extension for a considerably larger capacity, should it be necessary. Lighting and automatic landing systems are also installed on the runway.
In addition, unlike Cairo International Airport, the airport is equipped with cutting-edge airport security, administration, and operating technologies, as well as a 50-meter-high air-control tower and charter flights.
