Zenata Eco-Cité is a new city for 300.000 inhabitants, with 100.000 expected jobs, between Casablanca and Rabat in Morocco. The 1830 Ha mixed-use urban development project is the last land reserve of sufficient importance that could allow the balancing of existing socio-economic disparities between the East and the West in the Greater Casablanca area through social and spatial diversity.
The conception of the Zenata Eco-Cité has been forged by an array of ideas aimed at reducing or limiting environmental impacts during the full length of its life cycle while taking in account socioeconomic stakes. This approach that places people at the heart of its concept development makes
Zenata an eco-designed new city. This project also aims to become the economic capital of Morocco with the development of new education, health, commercial and logistic hubs.
Zenata Eco-Cité promotes an integrated and inclusive eco-design approach and calls for the participation of national and local governments mobilizing public/private partners, citizens and civil society.
