The Iconic Tower

Project Summary

In November 2019, Misr for Engineering Works inaugurated the tallest tower in Africa, coined the Iconic Tower, located in the Central Business District in the heart of Egypt’s new administrative capital. With that, the Iconic Tower subtly pulls the rug from the Carlton Center Tower, once considered the tallest tower in Africa.

The project comes in line with Egypt’s direction of making the new administrative capital a global city, boasting the most vital buildings in Africa and the Middle East. The 385 meters high Iconic Tower is considered a miracle by all engineering standards and is a symbol reflecting modern Egypt, just like the Pyramids and Sphinx symbolized ancient Egypt.

Misr for Engineering Works takes pride in being a contributing member to such world-class architecture encompassing high technologies with unprecedented implementation rates with the support of our single girder EOT handling 10 tons. That’s in addition to ensuring high levels of efficiency, adopting the latest methods and best practices, and factoring in security and safety.
