Several developers will showcase projects in New Cairo, one of the most anticipated areas in Egypt and home to one of the country’s largest landscaped park.

Hyde Park will be offering an 8-year payment plan on the second phase of Park Corner.
“Open green space in urban environments provides numerous advantages and health benefits for homebuyers, associated with access to public open space and parks and plays
a key role in their purchasing decisions. Access to vegetated areas such as parks, open spaces, and playgrounds has been associated with better perceived general health, reduced stress levels, reduced depression and more. All of which are aspects that homebuyers take into consideration when looking in the market,” says company CEO, ENG. Amin Serag. Exhibitor.
ARDIC for Real Estate Developments and Investments, will highlight Zizinia El Mostakbal, within Mostakbal City – a residential community with green space and roads representing 50% of the total area of the city.

Visitors to the four-day show, will have a chance to meet developers, who will offer special promotions on residential units and complexes, as well as property consultants who will be able to dispense advice.
“The residential sector has long been a bright spot for the industry in Egypt. For Egyptian homebuyers, real estate investment, even on a very small scale, remains a tried and tested means of guarding against economic instability,” says Tom Rhodes, Exhibition Director at Cityscape Egypt. “We therefore expect significant interest from homebuyers this year due to the rich variety of quality residential product, and our exhibitors will be available to assist them in making the right real estate choice.”
