Launched in July 2010, Qena Gardens is Orascom Housing Communities (OHC) newest development in Egypt. The new project seeks to meet the needs of Egyptian citizens by addressing the countrywide demand for affordable housing. OHC is the first private company to look towards creating tangible solutions in addressing this need in Qena Governorate.
Spanning across approximately 2.8 million square meters of land, Qena Gardens is located 5 km from the city centre. Phase one of the project will offer over 8,000 housing units located on a land mass of 840,000 sq m. Similar to Haram City, Qena Gardens will provide residents with a full range of services, including recreational and retail services, houses of worship, medical facilities, a school, and workshops.
As part of OHC’s vision to create a fully-integrated self-sufficient community, the project will provide a number of employment opportunities to local residents. By creating access to employment, OHC helps Egyptian citizens to access the tools they need to create a better standard of life for themselves.
Qena Gardens will offer a diverse range of housing units designed to meet the different needs of OHC’s customer base. Two, three or four bedroom apartments that are either semi-finished or fully finished will be available; all units will include a living room, a kitchen and a bathroom. In addition, ground floor units will have access to a garden, whilst second floor units will have access to roof space.
