A new city is being built in Egypt

Egypt's ambitious new administrative capital, a large-scale infrastructure project on the edge of Cairo that will be crowned with Africa's tallest skyscraper.

A new city is being built in Egypt
Halfway between the historic city of Cairo and the Gulf of Suez lies Egypt's new administrative and financial capital (NAC), whose name has not yet been announced. The new metropolis, which is still under construction, increases impressively from a vast desert of 700 km2, previously 45 km east of the Nile.
Cairo's 20 million residents already make it one of the most populous cities in the world, and the larger region's population is expected to double in the next 20-30 years. The new city is expected to ease congestion and accelerate economic development as part of the Egypt Vision 2030 program.
Designed to house the country's main government departments and ministries, as well as foreign embassies, NAC will house a population of 6.5 million when completed.
Planned to support 21 residential areas and 25 special zones, the city will have a sprawling park with a steel and concrete composite structure 'green river' that will flow along the NAC, mimicking artificial lakes and the path through which the Nile passes.
The city will also include 2,000 educational institutions, more than 600 hospitals and clinics, a technology and innovation park, and a huge theme park that will be four times the size of Disneyland.
The city will be home to a new 93,000-seat national stadium that, when completed, will be Africa's second-largest. The stadium roof, which will be supported by a high-strength steel lattice frame and steel suspension cables, was designed to resemble Queen Nefertiti's ceremonial headgear.
