The Al-Mogran Development Project is an over $4 billion development project undertaken by the Alsunut Development Company that seeks to develop several thousand acres in downtown Khartoum along the spot where the White Nile and Blue Nile merge to form the Nile. The discovery of oil in Sudan has provided the Sudanese government with a billion dollar surplus that allows the funding of this project.
Starting in 2004, the project has two main phases:
phase one, the Central Business District development
phase two, the residential estate portion.
The Al-Mogran project, when completed, would have produce 11,000,000 square feet (1,000,000 m2) of office space, 1,100 villas, housing for 45,000 residents and visitors, and jobs for 60,000 Sudanese. The project, however, has received criticism in light of the continuing Darfur Conflict. Completion was expected by 2014.
The project came to a halt after dispute between DAL and the Sudanese government. It is likely not to be rewarding with competition of Qatari Dyar project and other practically constructible projects in the arena.
