Compass, a private equity firm, announced today that portfolio company Bonyan for Development and Trade (Bonyan) has launched the Walk of Cairo (WOC). It is set to have over 100 local and international retailers, including food and beverage, diverse shopping outlets, a wellness centre, family entertainment options, as well as many other attractions for visitors to experience and indulge in, all in one gated outdoor space.
The WOC is located in the heart of Sheikh Zayed, designed by renowned Chicago based architects Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM), one of the architecture firms.
The project is spread over 116,000 sqm with 900m of prime frontage.
For his part, Compass Managing Partner, Tarek Abdel-Rahman, stated that in the last decade, changing demographics and the increased migration to West Cairo has created a greater need for outdoor spaces where people can socialise and congregate.
“The WOC will transform Cairo’s entertainment landscape and offer a unique experience to all its visitors. The WOC brings an exciting and unique offer to the city”, said Founder and Chairperson of Compass, Shamel Aboul Fadl.
The WOC will redefine the leisure experience with an array of exceptional dining, retail, entertainment and recreational activities along with office space. Leasing for phase one will begin in the first quarter of 2019 and is already eliciting significant interest from leading local and international retail enthusiasts.
