The Greater Cairo Housing Authority (GCHA) has finished constructing 82 percent (2800 out of 3400 apartments) of the Embaba Airport housing project, in preparation for delivery to owners in December.
General Hesham Abu Senna, Director of the GCHA, said the area has been provided with electrical power from the national grid and linked to the main feeders. Other utilities are currently being extended to the units.
Abu Senna added that the units’ total cost is EGP 600 million. In addition, another EGP 600 million was spent on the North Giza project’s development so far. The GCHA allocated EGP 150 million to complete the project units in addition to the second phase of the Ahmed Orabi highway, in time for their inauguration in December, instead of October as originally planned.
Furthermore, the GCHA will conclude the construction of the airport’s garden before end of the year. The garden covers 39 acres and cost EGP 60 million.
Abu Senna declared that the GCHA has built 65 percent of the hospital of Manshyet Nasser, which cost EGP 250 million, situated in the Nasser area’s development project. The hospital will include 150 beds and is scheduled for delivery to the Directorate of Cairo next January.
