Ahl Misr walkway project, a new two-level walkway formulated by City Edge Developments along the Nile Corniche is set to be opened to the public this Friday in a ceremony that will take approximately three days.
Inaugurated in 2019 under the supervision of Egypt’s Ministry of Housing’s New Urban Communities Authority (NUCA), once opened the project aims to provide both locals and tourists with a chance to enjoy the Nile up close.
Mamsha Ahl Misr Walkway includes local and international restaurants, cafés, and retail shops, as well as entertainment areas and parking spaces. It will blend a pleasurable walk near the North African country’s oldest and most appealing landmark, the Nile, with an alluring view and activities.
It is the outcome of fewer than three years of construction and reformation work on the Nile Corniche. It is said that the government is aiming to increase green spaces, improve touristic components in the Cairo Downtown area, and upgrade urban development, as per the directives of Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi.
