OverviewEdit

The project is being constructed by Talaat Mostafa Group. The Master Planners are HHCP Design International, Inc. The landscape architects are the SWA group. Construction began on July 2006.

The contract by which the land was granted to the company was challenged in Egyptian courts. Egyptians were angered that the land had been sold below current market value to Talaat Mostafa Group during Mubarak's rule.[1]

Madinaty is being built over an area of 3,200 hectares (8,000 acres), with a total budget of 60 Billion Egyptian pounds.[2]

In 2016, around 3900 residential units were sold in Madinaty by the Ministry of Housing.[3]

Madinaty has wide streets and the city is designed in terms of sub-compounds where each sub-compound has its facilities in terms of supermarkets, a mosque, an outpatient clinic, and public parks for children to play in and families.

Madinaty has a mall with various shops including a mechanic's shop and restaurants. Another food court was recently opened called South Park with dozens of restaurants such as McDonald's, Pizza Hut, Hardee's, and Chili's.
