Life in Cairo can be challenging; it is overcrowded, and underserviced, leaving its residents in the constant search for residential developments east or west of central Cairo that offer efficient, integrated, and affordable quality living solutions for their families.
Capital Group properties (CGP) was established in 2015, to fulfill the needs of the Egyptian real estate market, to create affordable, sustainable and quality integrated communities in Egypt. CGP is owned by Abu Dhabi Capital Group (ADCG) and Al Ain Properties, leading global developers with diversified investment portfolios and an extensive land bank of prime locations worldwide.
Combining a wealth of global developments, with a skilled team of team of engineers, architects, planners, project managers, commercial and financial experts with hard-earned track records, CGP brings forward a new standard of Real Estate Development to Egypt.
Most real estate developers start with financial assessments, whereas a few start with values in mind. We value quality cultured, intelligent, and healthy lifestyles, and every decision we take reflects these values, and is prominent in every aspect of our projects.
We envision a community with clean sidewalks, multitudes of greenery and international schools easily accessible to our children by bike. A safe neighborhood, that reflects the timeless beauty of nature and the simplicity of the best architectural designs from all around the world.
A community that is not only in touch with reality, but on the constant mission to elevate the surroundings, and bring forth a better tomorrow for all its residents. By incorporating alternative energy options, conservation-minded water management and waste recycling, we create sustainable communities in harmony with its natural surroundings.
All of this, alongside cultural activities, arts in the streets and parks, and a focus on promoting sports and wellbeing, we envision creating a place that enhances the lives of everyone within it.
We understand the Egyptian real estate market, and we bring forth a wealth of hands-on experience to focus on providing affordable and quality living solutions for the larger segment of Egyptian society than is currently being served.
Not only are we equipped to meet this challenge, but we are excited about creating a new model for development in Egypt.
