With a complete portfolio of residential, commercial, entertainment and retail projects. With projects such as Mall of Arabia, Aeon Towers, and District 5, we have expanded our offering to ensure that our products cater to the entire market. District 5, our latest project, is an ambitious mixed-use development that will reshape East Cairo living, which only Marakez, with our experience and track record in retail, services and residential development, can bring to life.
Why New Katameya?
About District 5
With District 5, we selected a 200-acre parcel of land in the best located plot of land in New Cairo, perfectly linking the old city to the fast-emerging New Capital. Investing heavily in infrastructure to create closer links with Road 90 and the rest of New Cairo. Giving easy access to Cairo Airport, Maadi, Madinat Nasr, and the Red Sea.
District 5 is not named due to the proximity to the 5th Settlement but because it brings together the five key elements required to create a vibrant and thriving community. We have utilized the land intelligently to maximize the enjoyment for everyone, be they families, corporates or simply visitors. I hope you enjoy the final journey as much as we have in getting you there.
Five Journeys, One Destination
Live, Play, Grow, Shop and Work

A myriad of leisure and entertainment options can be found in District 5’s Lifestyle Centre, including a cinema, a theatre, restaurants, cafés, fine dining options, and top international retailers.

Fitness studios will offer fitness classes, yoga, pilates, and meditation ensuring you connect both physically and mentally at District5.
Journey N° 4
Walkability is an essential element of any residential community. That is why retailers, supermarkets and a myriad of other service providers such as banks, telecoms, pharmacies and more, are adjacent to all of Marakez’s residential projects. A subsidiary of Fawaz Al Hokair, the largest shopping center developer in the Middle East, Marakez develops unique shopping centers that are within walking distance of its residences.
Journey N° 5
There is no better place to work than District 5. An ultra-modern commercial area will attract a wide range of business owners and entrepreneurs with provisions for a variety of professional services.
Offices and co-working spaces ensure that there is room for every type of business, and will allow residents and business owners to network and collaborate from a single location.
