The project for Bourouag New Town is located in proximity of the Constantine area, one of the biggest urban settlement of Algeria. The site is relatively isolated and the only connection is an highway ramp. This physical characteristic let the architects in charge of the planning develop the project freely from urban constraints.
Bourouag is a mixed urban development combining residential, commercial and institutional functions, aiming to create a balanced interrelation between urban settlement and natural spaces, that is why it is also defined “Oasis Urbaine”.
At the moment, apart from the conceptual proposal by Lemay architects, there is no clear information as regards the state of construction works.
