It was a journey that embarked more than 63 years ago with the promise to serve the housing needs of millions of Egyptians to develop meaningful living experiences for them. Today, Madinet Nasr for Housing & Development (MNHD) has become an inherent part of the real estate development sphere; becoming one of Egypt’s leading urban community developers.
Founded in 1959 and listed on the Egyptian Exchange in 1996, MNHD has capitalized on a long and successful track record of delivering world-class housing and infrastructure projects to broaden its exposure to various target segments of the Egyptian real estate market. Today, the company holds a land bank of nearly nine million square meters (sqm) anchored in the East Cairo area and with a growing presence in other regions of Egypt. The company has a total of eight active projects across two main developments; Taj City, a 3.5 million sqm mixed-use development in a strategic location in New Cairo on the Ring Road, and only minutes away from East Cairo and Heliopolis , and Sarai a 5.5 million sqm mixed-use development strategically located near Egypt’s New Administrative Capital.
Initially established to develop more than 80 million sqm of land in Nasr City, home to more than three million residents, and nearby areas on the outskirts of Cairo to cater to the needs of its citizens, the company was a pioneer in introducing unique development concepts in Madinet Nasr district which was the cornerstone of the company’s long track record of successful projects. Among the landmarks MNHD developed and constructed are The Unknown Soldier Memorial, The Military Parade Stand, the 6th of October Panorama, Abbas Elaqqad Street, and Cairo Stadium to name a few.
THE VISION BEHIND IT ALL
The astounding milestones achieved by the company have made MNHD one of the leading developers in Egypt, with a vision that resembles no other, a commitment to build life rather than buildings, creating homes rather than houses, setting a recognizable footprint in every land it develops, prioritizing its clients first and foremost, and a commitment to remain authentic yet with a state-of-the-art flavor that copes with lifestyle updates.
MNHD’s strategy is derived from the notion of pursuing growth as the company continues to deliver on its promises of excellence and value. With its restructuring, MNHD has expanded its target audience to capitalize on potential opportunities in the high-end real estate market and its longstanding legacy and knowledge of customers’ needs. In 2012, MNHD embarked on its gated-community expansion strategy with the launch of Taj Sultan in Taj City, New Cairo. Conforming to international standards, MNHD has teamed up with leading local and international business partners to ensure the highest levels of quality across its developments.
Today, MNHD is in a favorable position with great growth potential to unlock thanks to its strategically located and liability-free undeveloped land bank at Taj City and Sarai.

Set to emerge as Cairo’s go-to cultural destination, Taj City will host a cultural wheel, an outdoor/indoor exhibition center and regular operatic performances. The master plan of Taj City was developed by DDS & Partners, a renowned Belgian firm. With bespoke interiors and warm textures that mirror Egyptian heritage and shared values, Taj City’s master plan reflects MNHD’s appreciation for exceptionality.
Sarai: The mixed-use development is nestled directly on Cairo-Suez Road and Al Amal Axis on 5.5 million sqm of land, with a prime location in New Cairo. Employing a new concept of living that believes in personalizing every person’s living experience for their own. The project offers a perfect mix of urban to suburban exposure with a wide variety of spaces and units ranging from apartments to S-villas/ Town Houses among others set amidst a sprawling lush green landscape. The master plan of Sarai was developed by the internationally recognized architectural firm Benoy.
