Madinaty (Arabic: مدينتى‎‎  Egyptian Arabic pronunciation: [mæˈdenti], "My City") is a suburb, aimed at becoming a complete city, in northeast Cairo Governorate, Egypt. It is south of Shorouk and northeast of New Cairo.

Overview[edit]

The project is being constructed by Talaat Mostafa Group. The landscape architects are the SWA group. Construction began on July 2006.

The contract by which the land was granted to the company was challenged in the Egyptian court. The Egyptians were angered that the land had been sold below value to Talaat Mostafa Group during Mubarak's rule.[1]

Madinaty is being built over an area of 3,200 hectares (8,000 acres), with a total budget of 60 Billion Egyptian pounds.[2]

In 2016, around 3900 residential units were sold in Madinaty by the Ministry of Housing.[3]

Infrastructure[edit]

Madinaty uses Advanced Metering Infrastructure for water and electricity distribution which is supplied by Manas Energy Management.

Climate[edit]

Köppen-Geiger climate classification system classifies its climate as hot desert (BWh)[4] as the rest of Egypt.
