The future location of the Mfadel Group under the name of the Ocean Park project, symbolizes a sanctuary of tranquility in an ocean of greenery, with the park and the sea as the only opposites, and is ideally positioned in the new town of Zenata, in the center of an ambitious urban renewal project.
Zenata, the new eco-city, extends over an area of 1830 hectares and is located on the second northern ring of Casablanca. The city strives to become a sustainable and inclusive city. By becoming the first real estate group in the region to implement a residential program to Eco-city standards, the Mfadel group intends to make this orientation a new path to follow.

Human well-being, reconnection to the environment and neighborhood life in historic medinas are all factors in the development of the city. In this context, the Mfadel group has chosen to launch its second project in this new ecological city the Ocean Park residence, which was launched in June 2021 and met with enormous success, sparking a second tranche. A project that fits perfectly into the environment of the new district, favoring ecology and respect for nature rather than imposing itself.
A brief overview of the Ocean Park project
The Mfadel group favors the well-being of the buyer through a location close to green spaces, in particular an 8-hectare central park, by adopting an architecture favoring exterior luminosity for energy savings, and a strategy of proximity by allowing quick access to all facilities on foot or by car. Bicycle. An approach that will allow individuals to take greater advantage of this new environment while reducing their carbon footprint.
Ocean Park is an invitation to rediscover the life that people deserve for anyone who wants to live in total harmony with nature, with the ocean as their only visual contact on a 5.5 kilometer promenade surrounded by sand dunes. Thus, following the success of the first phase of commercialization of the project, the Mfadel Group returns with a second phase which includes a variety of equipment ranging from basic needs to approval. Swimming pools, sports equipment, playground and many more. There are many activities to rediscover the pleasure of family time.
The developer spares no expense, offering guests a gated and secure property with CCTV cameras and 24-hour security. The spaces will be finished to a high standard including the marble flooring.
Ocean Park Project Apartment Cost
The second phase of the Ocean Park project includes high-end apartments ranging from one to three bedrooms, with prices starting at 480,000 DHS. The group’s success is attributed in part to the completion of the Zenata Tower, a true architectural marvel. It is a residential and commercial project whose architecture is adapted to the qualities and particularities of the eco-city of Zenata and which is also ready to market immediately.
The construction of the Zenata Tower project is authorized for the benefit of the advantages offered by the characteristics of the new city, with the primary objective of obtaining the desired comfort while respecting the environment by relying on the architectural means, the available renewable energies and the use of less mechanized techniques and external energy instead as much as possible. These architectural approaches and techniques are designed to take advantage of the sun in winter and protect against it in summer.
Using a bioclimatic design strategy encourages energy conservation and reduces heating and cooling expenses while providing a very comfortable living environment. This is the main reason why Mfadel Group pays particular attention to the orientation of buildings in order to make the most of energy and sunlight. Land selection based on climate, topography, noise zones and the presence of nearby natural resources is therefore critical, as are construction methods such as the glazed surfaces used in the Zenata Tower project, without forgetting the compactness, the choice of materials and finally the protection. of the sun.
Phase I of the Zenata ecological city project in Morocco is due to be completed in 2020
The construction of phase I of the ecological city of Zenata in Morocco should be completed in 2020. Sanitary facilities are currently under construction and 2,000 homes have already been put up for sale. This is after the start of marketing of the residential units in July this year.
Ecological city of Zenata
The project consists of 2,000 ecological housing units covering an area of 70 hectares, 30 of which are buildable, with an accessible floor area of 840,000 square meters.
Developed primarily for Casablanca’s middle class and slum dwellers, the eco-city housing will be occupied in three phases by 2023, to house 8,700 families.
According to the general manager of the Zenata Development Company, Mohammed Amine El Hajhouji, the works for the complete connection of the eco-city to the water, electricity and sanitation networks have been completed, as well as the construction of the infrastructure of transport and work on the railways. located in the region. “These works are part of the first phase of the project, which covers 800 hectares. They will be delivered by 2020, and operations should start no later than 2022,” he said.

The ecological city of Zenata is located northeast of the Moroccan metropolis of Casablanca. It extends over 1,830 hectares with 5 km of coastline open to the Atlantic Ocean. Created in 2006 at the initiative of the State, Zenata is the first African city to be awarded the Eco-City Label (ECL), a certification obtained at COP 22.
The green side
The new town includes a total of 470 hectares of green spaces and retention basins for the rainy season in order to promote groundwater recharge and reforestation of the site. These naturally irrigated parks leading to the sea are thus designed as “ecological corridors”.
The construction work is financed by Morocco, thanks to loans of $166 million from the French Development Agency (AFD), an additional $166 million from the European Investment Bank (EIB) and a $4.4 million grant from the European Union (EU).
The eco-city of Zenata will certainly be at the top of Morocco’s list of participants at the next Africa-France summit to be held from June 4 to 6, 2020 in Bordeaux.
