The land, which will be allotted to the New Urban Communities Authority (NUCA), comes within the state’s strategic planning for the urban development of the Northwest Coast Region, which extends from Alamein City to Salloum, Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly affirmed in an official statement on May 20.

Back in April, Minister of Housing, Utilities, and Urban Communities Assem El Gazzar announced that works on 15 42-story coastal towers in New Alamein are in full swing, where one tower is being finalized, as highlighted in a previous ministerial statement.
