Al Omrane - New town of Chrafate
Third new town realized by the company Al Omrane, after Tamesna, near Rabat, and Tamansourt, near Marrakech, the new Town of Chrafate is located about 20km south-east of Tangier, on the area of the rural town of Joumaa (province of Fahs Anjra, region of Tangier-Tetouan). Included in the economic area of the new harbour of Tanger Med, the city is made to accompany the industrial development of the region by meeting the housing needs generated by the creation of free zones and the installation of Renault-Nissan, close to the site. The first inhabitants are due to arrive in 2012; 30000 accommodations are planned to house 150000 inhabitants in the future.
