Emaar Misr, the wholly owned subsidiary of Emaar Properties PJSC, has unveiled a dedicated residential village for the Egyptian diplomatic community in Mivida, the integrated lifestyle development in the 5th District of New Cairo City.
Mr Ronald Krater of JZMK, the US-based master-planner of Mivida, flew in exclusively from the US to present the developmentâ€™s design concept to the diplomatic community at a function held at the Egypt Diplomat Club.
The presentation organised by Emaar Misr was attended by top officials of the Egyptian Foreign Ministry, Ambassadors and other diplomats. At the exclusive presentation by the expert international designer, the participants were given an overview of the unique features of Mivida including its focus on developing a number of green parks and open spaces that promote outdoor activities and bring communities together.
Mr Hazem Ashry, General Manager, Emaar Misr, said: â€œMivida is a world-class integrated lifestyle development, which was designed to cater to the refined taste of upscale clientele. The very fact that the diplomatic community chose Mivida for their dedicated residential village highlights the niche appeal of Mivida, which is a class apart in terms of design, build quality and amenities provided.â€
Designed with the focus of offering a robust and lively outdoor environment, Mivida is anchored by a 33-acre central park in addition to other smaller parks that are ideal for community activities. To promote an outdoor activity oriented community lifestyle, Mivida also comprises walking trails connecting the community roads for walks and jogging, as well as promenades and cycling trails.
Homes in Mivida also feature â€˜smartâ€™ technology that helps the implementation of advanced technologies for the convenience of residents. The smart homes also help in achieving energy and water use efficiency, highlighting Emaarâ€™s commitment to sustainable development.
The EGP5.75 billion Mivida community is located in close proximity to the American University in Cairo, and is only 20 minutes away from the Cairo International Airport. The community will have several residential villages offering fully finished and managed homes, and commercial and retail buildings – all designed by international architects to world-class standards. The office buildings are currently under construction to provide much-needed office space for international firms looking for a modern business infrastructure in Cairo. The community also features healthcare centres, schools, retail outlets and hotels.
Emaar Misr is the pioneer of integrated lifestyle communities in Egypt, and is also developing the EGP12 billion Uptown Cairo and the EGP9.92 billion Marassi. Both projects are also progressing as per schedule with the first homes to be handed over later this year.
