So, the NAC provides the perfect environment if you are someone who lives to get from A to B in a stress-free and accessible way.


The NAC is becoming known for its vibrant arts scene. Many galleries, museums, and performance venues provide opportunities for cultural exploration. For example, towards the end of 2022, Magnom Properties formed a unique partnership with French contemporary artist Richard Orlinksi. The partnership involves showing Orlinksi's collection of colourful animal-inspired resin sculptures at Magmom Properties' first project in the NAC. This project along with others makes the NAC an attractive destination. But it's most attractive to those who crave a unique and culturally rich environment

Construction started on the NAC in 2017. Then once complete the city will house around 6.5 to 7 million people. The city offers a smart and sustainable environment. It is also the largest of several new cities Egypt is developing. When combined these new cities are creating a new urban vision for 30 million people.

Yet, a sizeable area of the New Administrative Capital is already built. This not only includes the parliament, a presidential complex, and government departments.
