Merely 9,024 apartments (376 residential buildings) are almost 91.5% complete in Badr City, which are designated for the first batch of government employees to move to the New Administrative Capital (NAC) upon operation of the new city’s ministerial district, Invest-Gate reports.

This came during Iraq’s Minister of Construction, Housing, and Public Municipalities Nazanin Muhammad Wosu tour to the new capital, accompanied by Deputy Minister of Housing, Utilities, and Urban Communities for National Projects Khaled Abbas and Assistant Vice President of the New Urban Communities Authority (NUCA) Kamal Bhagat.

During the visit, Wosu inspected 29,496 housing units (1,124 buildings) in NAC’s Capital Gardens district, which comes in line with President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi’s “Residence for All Egyptians” national project across new cities nationwide, as highlighted in a December 11 official statement.

With investments valued at EGP 7.5 bn, construction on residential properties at the Capital Gardens area is 62% done, surpassing NUCA’s target achievement rate of 52%, the statement noted.

On his part, Abbas emphasized the special focus put on quality and efficiency throughout the implementation process to deliver units to beneficiaries with the expected specifications.

Last May, Bahgat had announced that 9,024 apartments are 73% finished in Badr City, as part of the government’s plans to relocate 51,000 state employees to NAC, according to an earlier ministerial statement.
