Buildings We Own
Abdel Khalek Tharwat
22 Abdel Khalek Tharwat was built in the 1920’s by a Greek family. It was part of a complex that encompasses four buildings designed by the same architect. The building changed ownership over the following decades until it was purchased by a merchant from a neighboring wholesale market. The building overlooks 3 streets: Abdel Khalek Tharwat, Talaat Harb and Adly, with an open view to Abdel Khalek Tharwat.
