Marakez Reshapes New Cairo with District 5


Marakez is a leading real estate developer in Egypt, with a complete portfolio of residential, commercial, entertainment and retail projects. With projects such as Mall of Arabia, Aeon Towers, and District 5, it has expanded its offering to ensure that its products cater to the entire market. District 5, its latest project, is an ambitious mixed-use development that will reshape East Cairo living, which only Marakez, with its experience and track record in retail, services and residential development, can bring to life.

Welcome to District 5!

District 5 is the result of Marakez’s firm belief that high quality living is attainable and that you can find the lifestyle you wish to experience in your own homes. At District 5, you’ll find everything, from offices, sports, shopping, entertainment and all the lifestyle options you’re looking for. Marakez has built a suburban residential community with the qualities and convenience of city life. Marakez has been involved in a variety of projects, all of which have given it a wealth of expertise that allows it to enhance your experience, which it is placing at the very core of this project.


There is no better place to work than District 5. An ultra modern commercial area will attract a wide range of business owners and entrepreneurs with provisions for a variety of professional services. Offices and co-working spaces ensure that there is room for every type of business, and will allow residents and business owners to network and collaborate from a single location.


As Marakez’s flagship project in East Cairo, the location of District 5 was selected with excellence and convenience in mind. Among the planned 13,000 acres south extension of New Cairo, District 5 will be at the centre of New Cairo. Located on the Cairo – Ain Sokhna highway, District 5 is connected to the Red Sea. Closer to home, Wadi Degla Protectorate lies on the southern edge of the development, giving you easy access to the great outdoors whenever you need a quick break from the city.

Mobility & Connectivity

In our daily lives, connectivity has become an imperative factor that is a major part of our ability to get the most out of every single day. That is why Marakez has almost completed 2 major bridges over the Ain Sokhna Highway, right before and right after the District 5 site, seamlessly linking District 5 to New Cairo and surrounding neighbourhoods. – Wadi Degla 5 min – Road 90 7 min – AUC 8 min – Maadi 13 min – Airport 13 min – Heliopolis 30 min – Sokhna 45 min – Gouna 210 min


District Five Residences promotes the outdoor experience in a safe environment through an integrated network of trail systems, bike lanes, landscaped parks and plazas connected to the heart of the project – The Clubhouse and Gateway Plaza. An array of residential homes is available, in a modern yet earthy architecture with a focus on generous interior spaces.


Take a break, enjoy life and play. You rarely have to leave District 5. A myriad of leisure and entertainment options can be found in District 5’s Lifestyle Centre, including a cinema, a theatre, restaurants, cafés, fine dining options, and top international retailers. An outdoor plaza allows visitors to also enjoy the greenery and special family entertainment options where kids can play in a fun and safe environment.


At District 5, you’re invited to grow into the best version of yourself at the state-of-the art Wellness Centre and make use of the track, pool, gym, and sports pitches. Fitness studios will offer fitness classes, yoga, pilates, and meditation ensuring you connect both physically and mentally at District 5.


Walkability is an essential element of any residential community. That is why retailers, supermarkets and a myriad of other service providers such as banks, telecoms, pharmacies and more, are adjacent to all of Marakez’s residential projects. A subsidiary of Fawaz Al Hokair, the largest shopping centre developer in the Middle East, Marakez develops unique shopping centres that are within walking distance of its residences.
