LMD unveils Egypt’s first global design district

Article-LMD unveils Egypt’s first global design district

The Boulevard is One Ninety’s version of Oxford Street and Champs Elysee - connecting Cairo Design District to the rest of Cairo's new Business Quarter
The opportunity-rich Cairo Design District will be a place for artistic and design talents to flourish with its global design appeal.

With a total investment of EGP 12 billion, LMD, a renowned Egyptian real estate development business, announced the opening of Cairo Design District, the country's first design district.

As Egypt's first innovation and design district, the Cairo Design District is modelled after internationally known Design Districts with an emphasis on global design, such as Dubai, London, Miami, and Milan. It is intended to function as a worldwide creative neighbourhood. A spectacular 199,000 m2 space will house a variety of artwork from a wide range of disciplines throughout the district. These disciplines include fine arts, fashion design, architecture, and interior design.


The district makes up part of the ground-breaking One Ninety project. The One Ninety Project is one of the most notable real estate developments in Egypt with the Cairo Design District being in a prime location at the intersection of 90 Street and the Ring Road in New Cairo. The district will provide meaningful benefits to the project because of the range of distinctive services it will provide to designers and creatives all around the world.


Cairo Design District is a place that welcomes all creatives, whether they are experienced or just starting to allow them to express their artistic prowess. The ability to participate in a variety of artistic events and workshops will also further enrich their talent and give them the chance to express their work on a local and international stage. Within two years, LMD hopes to start their first delivery in this beautiful neighbourhood.

Cairo Design District will also serve as a design centre for startups, advertising agencies, production companies, consulting firms, and up-and-coming artists, as well as a place for experienced designers to live and work. This will be accomplished by offering modern offices, starting at 100 m2, that is specifically created to make it simpler for artists to create and execute their works. But the design also provides artists with all the resources and equipment they need to publicise their work in a variety of artistic mediums, including fashion design, furniture design, and other types of art.

When presenting the Cairo Design District, LMD considered the fact that this area offers several international hotels, like the Aloft hotels, for the first time in Egypt. This will help the area become a fully integrated worldwide destination that draws people from all over the world.
