B: Buildings

This is a pretty typical example of the newer apartment buildings in Degla, Ma’adi – constructed sometime in the past 10 years or so. This building is located on Road 199, a street lined with these tall buildings. And, as you can see, they’re built pretty close together. Years ago, we looked at several flats in this area when we were shopping for a place. I remember liking the design/floor plans of many of them but couldn’t deal with such small balconies and the lack of sun and sky. In fact, that may have been what led us out of Ma’adi altogether! πŸ˜‰
