Tradition and innovation

A winning entry in an international competition, Lemay’s innovative master plan features a unique concept for a sustainable district that will house a population of 20,000 residents. Aiming for self-sufficiency, El Menia will be developed as a new urban hub.  The community is to take shape around the construction of housing, offices, leisure and educational infrastructures, maintaining focus on public transit, contemporary lifestyle and a respect for local traditions.
