Spearheaded by a US-led consortium, the Tahrir Complex in Downtown Cairo is about to transform from a block of government beaucracy into a lavish lifestyle destination.
The Tahrir Complex. The mighty Mogamma building. That legendary labyrinth of offices in Downtown Cairo. Whatever you want to call it, it's about to undergo a massive transformation. As the New Administrative Capital sets itself up as the new home for ministries and government offices, the Tahrir Complex is looking for a new purpose in life. After the Sovereign Fund of Egypt shook hands with a US-led consortium to revamp the Tahrir Complex, the Ministry of Planning and Economic Development released these new pictures unveiling what the building will look like after its long overdue rework.
Led by US-based Global Ventures and Oxford Capital, alongside UAE's Al Otaiba Investment, the USD 200 million redevelopment project will turn what was once an imposing block of state bureaucracy into an apartment hotel, a lifestyle destination, a glamorous office space and a commercial centre all at once.
