Renovate the Shereifein Street

Shereifein street at Downtown, the old neighborhood who was the pioneer of architecture between the capitals of the world, when you walk in it, you will found that you back 100 years to past with the style of buildings and stores that have the mysterious old magic of the nineteenth-century-style.

The project aims to preserve Downtown’s historic character, restore its ornamental facades, and rescue the area from degeneration after it had been neglected and damaged due to climate factors. The revitalization has been undertaken under the auspices of Cairo governorate and the National Organization for Urban Harmony. 

Omar Mostafa, the engineer in charge of the renovation, said that the renovation of Shereifen Street is part of the major Khedive Cairo Development project, which started in 2012 to revitalize Khedival Cairo, extending through Downtown from Qasr Al-Nil Street to Attaba. 

The first stage was started by renovating the buildings in Al-Alfi Street and Talaat Harb Square. Mostafa mentioned that the project is now in its fourth stage, which includes all the streets in the Borsa district, including Shereifen Street. Shereifen Street has very important buildings, including the Egyptian Stock Exchange Museum, the Suez Canal Bank, and Cosmopolitan Hotel.

Mostafa said that Khedival Cairo consists of 500 real estates, of which about 300 have been renovated until now. 

Cairo Governor Atef Abdel Hamid and Mohammed Abu Saada, head of the National Organization for Urban Harmony, inaugurated the street on Wednesday, which marked World Heritage Day, with the participation of members of the National Committee for the Protection and Renovation of Cairo's Heritage and representatives from banks and companies funding the project, along with UNESCO’s Cairo office.
