Sodic has assigned US-based design firm Sasaki to develop the master plan for its new project in east Cairo, set to be built on 655 acres, reported Al Mal.

The project is expected to be offered mid-2017 according to Sodic’s Managing Director Magued Sherif. He further added that this partnership is ideal for actualizing the company’s vision for the project, according to Shorouk News.

Sasaki was established by  internationally renowned US architect Hideo Sasaki, introducing the idea of interdisciplinary planning and design in the mid-20th century. The company has since been awarded over 500 national and international design accolades.
