A premier destination for living and working in the heart of the capital. 

ICONIA is a fully integrated space, offering fully furnished and serviced apartments, premier office space, and specialty shops and restaurants for utmost convenience, all under one roof. ICONIA features three towers with a central courtyard which connects them.

ICONIA is located in Zamalek, one of Cairo’s most central, vibrant, and affluent districts.  Zamalek combines an air of historical charm due to it being surrounded by the Nile River with easy access to all major sites and districts within Cairo. 

This landmark building was originally designed in the late 1980’s by renowned architect Amr El Alfy. It has been continually recognized by its eclectic façade, which combines arabesque design with modern architecture.  For almost two decades, this iconic building stood as the dormitory for The American University in Cairo.  Recent renovations have transformed this building into a luxury development with a variety of creative spaces for both living and working.



It’s all about location, and ICONIA’S location is unparalleled in Cairo.  No matter which direction you decide to go, you are bound to bump into history, culture, unique scenery, entertainment, restaurants, museums, or an enriching and unique combination.  For these reasons and more, Zamalek is an island favored by many Egyptians and expats—which may be the reason it is home to many embassies and diplomats.

Zamalek’s prominence lies in its leafy streets. Those of which are perfect for stimulating walks where you are surrounded by architecturally-classic 19th century style buildings, art galleries and an abundance of antique shops.  ICONIA is less than 250 meters away from the majestic and historical Nile River. 

With The Cairo Opera House, Al Sawy Cultural Wheel, and the Museum of Islamic Arts, all being in close proximity to ICONIA, the Island of Zamalek is a glorious cultural hub. The residency is also within walking distance from the Cairo Tower.

If it wasn’t obvious enough already, ICONIA’s location is all about convenience. Within a few blocks from ICONIA are numerous grocery stores, pharmacies, coffee shops, restaurants, bars, cinema, and specialty shops. ICONIA is also less than 25 KM from Cairo International Airport, so you may travel with ease.
