Ould Daddah hoped that the new capital would be a symbol of modernity and national unity, to dominate the existing towns and cities in the interior. Nouakchott was planned as a hub for trade and other economic activities that were not to take place outside the city.
Nouakchott had planned a central business district with wide streets and grid-like structures, and nearby was the new Cinquieme Quarter (Fifth District), which within a few years became the largest city in the region with 1.5 million inhabitants.
