12 March, 2017, Cairo, Egypt: A range of 23 distinguished names are in the running for the 2017 Cityscape Egypt Awards, which recognises outstanding concepts in real estate development and architecture – from culturally integrated city skylines to sustainable urban communities in Egypt.
Six judges, three from Egypt and three from Dubai, have shortlisted a diverse group of nominees, who will now vie for top honours at the glitzy Awards ceremony, sponsored by JLL, on 28th March at the Royal Maxim Palace Kempinski Cairo.
Serving as a prestigious platform to showcase future visions of urban communities in Egypt, the Awards celebrates excellence in real estate development and architecture, by honouring design visionaries and forward-thinking leaders who are pioneering projects that are invigorating the country’s real estate sector.
Preceding the Cityscape Egypt exhibition, which takes from 31st March until 3rd April at the Cairo International Convention Centre, the Awards features seven categories across the following sectors: Commercial; Leisure & Hospitality; Community, Culture & Tourism; and Residential.
Shortlisted in the Residential Low Rise Project Award – Built category, is Uptown Cairo by Emaar Misr for Development. Uptown Cairo is the only integrated mixed-use development in the heart of Cairo and is situated on the highest site in the metropolitan area at a height of 200m above sea level. Home to villas, apartments, healthcare facilities, business centres and an award-winning golf clubhouse, Uptown Cairo will have an estimated 200 homes by the end of 2017. In addition, Emaar Square within Uptown Cairo, is slated to be the first luxury retail destination in Cairo, modelled after Beverly Hill’s Rodeo Drive and the Champs Elysees in Paris.
