10 modest apartments
Nekhen is a large area, but much of the land is arid, so be careful how you use it. Water Supplies can only be built on grassland, and water carriers will only walk so far from their sources. This means you'll want to keep your people housed close to the banks of the Nile, or else they might find themselves without a reliable source of water.
Clay Pits have to be even closer to the Nile, so you'll need to leave some space available on the riverfront.
There is a limited amount of flood plain, so plan farm placement carefully, making sure to leave some room to grow barley. Remember to build a Work Camp or two to provide laborers for floodplain farms.
There is no gold to be mined in Nekhen, so building a Palace isn't crucial. Now that the Overseer of the Workers is available, you can consult him instead of the Palace to monitor your city's work force. If you have a lot of unassigned workers (but don't really need to build any new industries), building a Palace will reduce unemployment.
