Cairo Gate project in Sheikh Zayed is a new milestone for Emaar Misr as it is our first project in West Cairo, as part of our endeavor to expand our integrated real estate projects in all over Egypt. The early phases of the Cairo Gate project have enjoyed great success and popularity after their launch last year, which confirms the success of our strategic vision and confidence of customers in our projects.”

During that period, the company’s land portfolio reached more than 17.4 mn sqm in five strategically distinct locations in East, West, and Central Cairo, as well as in the North Coast.
