Al Ismaelia for Real Estate Investment S.A.E. (“Al Ismaelia”) is a real estate development company based in Cairo, Egypt, focusing on acquiring and renovating prime real estate in Downtown Cairo with the aim of revitalizing the historic neighborhood and celebrating its unique, organic urban framework.
For a city with such a long history, many are surprised to learn that Downtown Cairo is less than 200 years old. Until the mid 1800's, the undisputed heart of Egypt's capital city was predominantly swamp land.
Al Ismaelia developed the company’s Urban Planning Project to outline their vision for Downtown Cairo; a vision that not only considers the company’s interests, but the interests of all the neighborhood’s players whom encompass every segment of Cairo’s rich urban fabric.
