Egypt’s new smart capital
You want big? Try building a new capital from scratch. That’s what Egypt is doing. To be located east of downtown Cairo, the high-tech capital will be the country’s new administrative hub and home to more than 6.5 million people. Egypt’s first “smart city” will boast the country’s largest airport, Africa’s tallest tower, the Middle East’s largest opera house, a $20 billion entertainment district and what’s projected to be the world’s largest park—bigger than New York’s Central Park.
