Maspero Triangle history

Maspero area is considered an area with a long history, like the rest of Great Cairo. Some places in this area date back to the 1400s and 1800s. The region represents a civilized, cultural, and political heritage.

It is said that the ownership of the land of the Maspero area belongs to Sharkas Pasha, who left Egypt with the departure of the British invasion of Egypt. Before Sharkas Pasha left Egypt, he donated this piece of land to his servants and workers at the time. 

With the passage of time and the change of generations, the new owners of the land sold it to the people, and in turn, the people sold parts of the land to Saudi and Kuwaiti investment companies.

The Maspero area has been in this way for many years, combining slums, luxury buildings, and investment projects at the same time.

Egypt's plan to overcome slum housing

Since 2016, the state, under the leadership of President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, has set Egypt's Vision 2030. This vision is based on 8 main goals of development, and at the forefront of these eight items is the item upgrading the quality of the Egyptian citizen and improving his standard of living. To implement the provisions of this vision, it was necessary to develop a plan to eliminate slums and improve the situation of the population there.

The Maspero Triangle area in the center of the country was at the forefront of the areas that were subject to the development plan. For many years, the Maspero area represented a great challenge because it contained a group of the most important buildings such as the Egyptian Radio and Television Building and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs building. At the same time, this area contained a huge area of random buildings.

Maspero Triangle project details

The total area of the Maspero Triangle project is about 75 acres, which is a huge area. The project extends over an area of 900 meters directly on the Nile Corniche in this area.

The main vision of the project is to promote the area and raise the efficiency of the surrounding places such as Abdel Moneim Riad Square, and the most important goal is to turn it into a residential, commercial, recreational, and tourist area.

It is worth noting that the Egyptian state owns only 10% of the land area, but it bears the cost of eviction alone, while the ownership of the rest of the land is owned by the people by 25%, and the rest of the area remains 65% owned by investment companies.

The Maspero Triangle development plan has been set to be for a period of three to five years since the beginning of work on the project. In recent statements, Eng. Khaled Siddiq, Head of the Urban Development Fund, stated that the Maspero Triangle development project is nearing completion, with a rate of 97%. 

After completion, people will be settled in the towers, which the Egyptian state, led by President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, has been keen to develop for people who will return to their homes in the Maspero area. After it represented one of the unsafe slum areas.

Residential units in Maspero Triangle

One of the biggest difficulties posed by the Maspero Triangle area at the beginning of the development is the number of residents in this area who must be compensated and the number of housing units that must be provided for them.

The first phase of the residential apartments, consisting of 4 towers, directly overlooking the 26th of July axis, has been completed.
