Wadi Degla Developments is presenting its package of tourism and housing projects during the current Cityscape exhibition. The company plans to gradually raise its prices throughout the current year. Moreover, Wadi Degla aims to increase the size of its land portfolio by buying new plots or entering partnerships.
Deputy CEO of the company, Amr El Kady, said that the company is expecting revenues to amount to EGP 5bn for 2016 through selling 3,000 units. He added that the company is set to launch two projects in the summer at the western North Coast and in Hurghada.
He noted that the company is presenting many projects under development during the Cityscape exhibitions, including touristic and residential projects. The company is offering extended payment plans of up to nine years at the conference, up from the previous seven years.
El Kady said that the total size of contracts at the end of 2015 reached EGP 3bn, which increased to EGP 4bn in 2016. The plan is to reach EGP 5bn in 2017.
Furthermore, the company intends to increase the size of its land portfolio—which currently stands at 8 million square metres in six areas—through buying lands from the Ministry of Housing or entering partnerships with other developers.
Wadi Degla Developments owns lands in eastern Cairo, which account for 70% of its portfolio of 20 projects. The total number of the company’s units amounts to 36,000 residential and tourism units, while 10,000 units were delivered.
