With 25 years of experience, Sigma Properties is a property management company specialized in developing and reutilizing heritage buildings to turn them into key pieces of urban infrastructure.

In 1992, the company started acquiring unique properties in Cairo and Alexandria to become the leading Egyptian heritage real-estate developer. Currently owning 30 historic properties, the objective was to create a portfolio of buildings that could deliver cultural and social benefits to different neighborhoods by reintegrating them into the community.

While it is important to create a significant return on investment for our clients and investors, it never comes at the expense of a property’s architectural identity so we take great care into preserving its authenticity. Our efforts are focused on reconnecting the past with the present to transition into the future, through redeveloping these historic landmarks into full functioning properties with a symbiotic relationship towards their modern surroundings

Established in 1959 by a group of brothers, Sigma Group initially started as a small company and grew to become the leading supplier of pipelines in the Middle East.

The family enterprise is now a thriving shareholding company with five additional independent divisions operating in pump supply, marine equipment, petroleum services, chemical manufacturing and real estate. The business is currently led by different generations who are jointly working to maintain the family’s legacy through constantly expanding its activity into diversified fields.

As cities focus on new developments and turn their back on their roots, Sigma Properties is allowing Cairene and Alexandrian citizens to rediscover their heritage through places with a unique sense of culture.

Our mission is to add all the right elements for the rehabilitation of historic buildings into modern life through repurposing key heritage properties and making them relevant again. Our method from acquisition to development is also based on an informative approach, which allows us to shed the light on the cultural enrichment that each building brings into its direct environment.

Our strength is in our process. Sigma Properties is always looking to provide its clients and investors with the best service experience through its meticulous approach and direct involvement in every phase of the project. The company is constantly seeking special investment opportunities by acquiring unique assets, while its financial and legal experience allows us to properly assess each property with an unmatched capability to estimate its real value.
