Ehaf Consulting Engineers is the project consultant. Check their website out, cant seem to find any renders. Probably because the project has just been announced. But if you guys find anything post it here.


Anyways, its about time! The Ramses Hilton is one of the ugliest buildings in Cairo! And the fact that it is in a very central location means its ugliness is always exposed. Here's how it looks now, before the renovation:






Yuck...

Can't wait to see how the new design will look like, definitely a plus for the Cairo Skyline! :cheers:
