In 2004, the Kingdom of Morocco launched a program to create 15 new cities by 2020, including Zenata, located to the east of the Greater Casablanca region.
The Zenata Eco-city project is located along the Atlantic Ocean in Morocco on a territory of almost 2000 ha at the crossroads of the Kingdom’s two largest cities: Rabat and Casablanca.
This leading project aims to create a new urban centrality that meets the challenge of the emergence of a middle class and the development of high value-added services for the region and the country, with the aim of reducing the existing socio-economic imbalances between the East and West of the Greater Casablanca region.
Zenata’s eco-city is intended to be a model of a sustainable city that meets international standards. An Eco-city standard has been developed. Ultimately, the project is expected to accommodate 300,000 inhabitants and 100,000 new jobs.
