Talaat Moustafa Group (TMG), one of the largest developers in Egypt, will build an integrated smart and sustainable residential city near the Saudi capital Riyadh at a cost of 40 billion Saudi riyals ($10.6 billion) under an agreement it signed on Sunday.
TMG said in a statement on Egypt’s bourse that it finalised the deal with Saudi’s National Housing Company (NHC) at Cityscape Global event in Riyadh on Sunday.
The agreement includes the construction of an “integrated smart and sustainable residential city” over the total space of 10 million square metres, the statement said.
