Historical Tahrir Landmark Mogamma To Be Turned Into Modern Lavish Hotel

The former building of the interior ministry and Tahrir’s Mogamma complex, the stately government building of Downtown Cairo that stood tall in the capital’s district since 1952 are both set to undergo a grand transformation. This is all per the request of the Sovereign Fund of Egypt after more than a year since the consortium of US-based Global Ventures, Oxford Capital as well as the UAE’s Al Otaiba Investment were both awarded a 3.5 billion contract to revamp the Mogamma complex into a brand new hotel and convert the interior ministry building into a mixed-use service complex.

Exuding a pyramid-like exterior façade, the hotel which will be named ‘Cairo House’ will maintain the visual identity of Cairo while boasting a modern and luxurious appeal. It is planned to house about 450 hotel rooms and 50 suites as well as hotel apartments and an entertainment area. Construction is already underway and is estimated to be completed by 2024.
