People Behind Upscale Egypt

The Project

Upscale presents the first and only “College Town” project in the Middle East, Nabta Town, situating world-class academic & research institutions at the center of its integrated communities.

Nabta University, will offer 10 programs, all of which are affiliated with the top international universities in their respective fields: Engineering, Biotechnology, Dentistry, Pharmacy, Physical Therapy, Applied Medical Science, Business and Economics, Mass Media, Foreign languages and Linguistics, in addition to Maritime and Logistics Management.

The new college town will also include schools and training centers to elevate the quality of education and offer hands on learning experience.

The project will be a one of a kind smart, sustainable urban real estate project that does not just make a long-term difference to the environment and the community, but also develop the residents’ human potential.

The investment cost of the project is estimated at EGP 4 billion, with a plot size of 600,000 sqm, 72% open space and a potential of 50 thousand direct and indirect job opportunities
