Surge in demand for Egypt’s new cities

Investors & homebuyers prove voracious appetite for property in the country with rising interest in the country’s new cities

31 October 2018, Cairo, Egypt: A healthy mix of investor interest, new developers and a surge in interest in Egypt’s New Administrative Capital, were among the major themes following the conclusion of this year’s NextMove Egypt, powered by Cityscape.

The three-day show, which increased by 16% on net sqm from 2017, took place at the Egypt International Exhibition Center (EIEC) in Mehwar Almosheer Tantawy in New Cairo earlier this month, and saw developers from across the country tout Egypt’s real estate prowess with offerings in the residential, hospitality and commercial sector.

With Old Cairo’s population around 19 million, Egypt has taken substantial strides to create new metropolises and satellite cities. These new cities garnered significant interest from investors and homebuyers looking for new opportunities at the show this year, especially those looking at Egypt’s New Administrative Capital.

Once completed the New Capital is expected to accommodate more than 5 million people, house Africa’s tallest tower, and will be the financial as well as administrative capital of the country, intended to stimulate the economy by offering thousands of jobs.

According to experts, demand for housing is likely to be strong in new cities due to affordable prices, and the promise of a cleaner, greener and more sustainable way of life. Cairo’s population is expected to hit 40 million by 2050 and competition for housing is fierce in the current capital, says real estate consultant JLL, explaining the need for residents to look at new cities.

This year’s NextMove Egypt saw developers from the New Administrative Capital place a strong emphasis on lifestyle and community living, a popular trend in the Egyptian residential market. Exhibitors showcased neighbourhoods complete with community retail facilities, as well as education and healthcare facilities, a selling point for many first-time homeowners.

Exhibitor Safwa Urban Development (SUD) showcased project Capital Heights from the New Capital and projects in Obour City. While Master Group, NextMove Egypt’s Silver Sponsors, showcased The City project in the New Capital, which is in close proximity to the Opera House and the highly-anticipated Green River, a combination of open water and planted greenery twice the size of New York’s Central Park.

La Verde, Akam Developments, MBG Developments, and Living Yards were also among the developers to showcase projects from the New Capital.

“Cairo’s population alone is growing at an average rate of 2.4% per year, this means that the appetite for property will continue to rise driving our exhibitors to launch projects that speak directly to this demand by offering much-needed housing across all price points,” says Chris Speller, Cityscape Group Director.

NextMove Egypt returns to the Egypt International Exhibition Center (EIEC) next year from October 24 – 26 October.

 

Continued growth for housing market

Developer to showcase the world’s largest residential building at NextMove Egypt

9 October 2018, Cairo, Egypt: Prompted by the rise in demand for residential communities with integrated retail, leisure and entertainment facilities, real estate developers at this year’s NextMove Egypt, powered by Cityscape, are ramping up efforts to entice potential homebuyers with a range of apartments, villas and townhouses in new mixed-use developments.

Opening its doors on the 18th October and running until the 20th at the Egypt International Exhibition Centre (EIEC) in Mehwar Almosheer Tantawy in New Cairo, NextMove Egypt, powered by Cityscape, will reveal hundreds of real estate investment opportunities for prospective buyers and investors across all price points, offered with attractive payment plans and down payments.

Omar Al Morshedy, Marketing Director at Memaar al Morshedy, one of the exhibitors at this NextMove says that homebuyers are always on the lookout for location, prices, developer reputation, instalment plans, and options on a range of spaces and down payments.

The company will be capturing the attention of visitors to the show this year with its latest project Skyline, expected to be the world’s largest residential building once completed. The building is expected to occupy 200,000 sqm and will be built over a seven-year period, with the first phase expected to be ready in three and a half years. The town-like complex will be established in Maadi, Cairo, and will offer its residents entertainment and dining experiences from a hyper market to ice skating and cinemas, while also housing offices.

“The real estate market is looking brighter than ever, and the market is stable. For potential homebuyers, the main factor that affects them is the price and location,” said Morshedy, adding that they always aim to offer clients the best value and competitive prices.

The company also plans on showing projects in 6th of October City, Nasr City, Maadi, Ring Road and Kattameya.

According to Oxford Business Group, the first and second quarter of 2017 saw the pound stabilising, FDI rise and economic reform translating into greater certainty in the sector, with developers continuing with existing projects and launching new and innovative ones. In addition, new metropolises and expanding satellite cities in the country is expected to absorb population growth and reduce densities in Central Cairo. NextMove exhibitors will be showing just a few of these projects at the show this year.

“The government and the private sector have major plans for the real estate sector over the next few years, for both local and foreign investors. The appetite for property remains substantial, with experts revealing property represents around a third to half of Egyptian families’ wealth within middle and high-income levels,” says Chris Speller, Cityscape Group Director.

“The demand for middle-income housing in Egypt remains a central issue, and what NextMove Egypt aims to do is connect the country’s residential developers with potential homebuyers. In addition, the rise in consumer confidence and attractive payment plans at the show all point to NextMove Egypt being ideally positioned to facilitate real estate investment,” he added.

This year’s exhibitors also include Porto Vacation Club (Amer Group), Living Yards Developments, Safwa Urban Development (SUD), Zahraa El Maadi Investment & Development Co., La Mirada, and many more.

NextMove Egypt, powered by Cityscape, is supported by Platinum Sponsor Next Home, and Silver Sponsors; Master Group and Contact Mortgage Finance.

According to the American Chamber of Commerce in Egypt, millennials – a generation that makes up almost 40% of Egypt’s population and more than 90% of the current workforce – are driving the demand for real estate in the country.

“Because of their sheer volume, millennials have a major impact on consumption and spending, making them an important engine of the economy. And the first wave of this generation, those in the 25-35 age group, are in their prime home-buying years,” notes the American Chamber of Commerce in Egypt.

This year’s NextMove Egypt, powered by Cityscape will see real estate developers speak directly to the millennial demand as they showcase some of the country’s latest and most popular real estate developments.

Once completed the New Capital is expected to accommodate 5 million people and will be the financial as well as administrative capital of the country and is intended to stimulate the economy by offering thousands of jobs.

Marketing Director at SUD, Ahmed Nabil Amer says the company will showcase residential project Capital Heights 2, and The Hub, a new mall, both located in the New Capital. In addition, SUD will launch its brand new commercial project at this year’s show in Obour City.
