Looking like the backdrop of a French New Wave film, the Consoleya building is a head-turner. The 95-year-old building boasts a neo-baroque aesthetic, with just the slightest of eclecticism infused into its build, which has come to define its style. French architect Paul-Conin Pastour was assigned for the construction of the existing building, creating a three- story gem, and an elegant rooftop. The philosophy is almost the perfect allegory for Downtown Cairo, making the building symbolic of all that makes this town so distinct in its multitude of architecture and art.
In 2014, Al Ismaelia for Real Estate Investment acquired The French Consulate to introduce Downtown’s Co-Working space ‘Consoleya’, catering to the growing segment of passionate entrepreneurs in Egypt.
“Consoleya” provides an engaging and versatile workspace environment; all at an affordable price to support a dynamic and results-oriented community, attracting young and tech-savvy entrepreneurs. The project is a blueprint in its co-working category both in Egypt and Africa, not only introducing an economically strong spirit in Downtown, but also serving as an important catalyst for the city’s economic recovery.
