An image contained in a video showing the achievements in the new administrative capital in Egypt revealed the completion of the construction work for the new Egyptian army headquarters, the largest “Octagon” in the Middle East.
The new Egyptian army headquarters, consisting of eight-faceted buildings in the Pharaonic style, appeared compact in the form of a circle that includes administrative buildings.
The “Octagon” building includes all the headquarters of the Egyptian armed forces, and its construction is scheduled to be completed soon.
The word “octagon” means octagonal, as octa means the number eight in the Greek language.
The project is located on a total area of 189,000 square meters, while the actual area of the buildings is estimated at 45,000 square meters.
There are two ministerial buildings located in the center of the circle, and they are connected to each other and the rest of the eight external buildings (the number of Egyptian army departments) by longitudinal corridors.
