New administrative capital features central business district created by Perkins & Will in collaboration with Dar

Perkins & Will and its parent company Dar Group have revealed new images of part of the huge new administrative capital development being masterplanned for the Egyptian government.

The 23sq km Capital Park is described as the “commercial backbone” of Cairo’s new administrative capital and was created by Dar for a site that is approximately 45km from downtown Cairo.

It features three distinct commercial zones centred around a “world class Central Park” described as being larger than its New York namesake and bookended by a new Grand Mosque and a 385m tower with an illuminated crown “inspired” by the Obelisk of Luxor.
