The AUC announced from a long time that it was going to sell the Old Falki building aka old campus down town as the University was transferred to New Cairo.
There were lots of rumors regarding whom will buy the huge and important building in this very important area of Cairo. One of the most famous rumors was that the Israeli Embassy proposed to the buy the building but had to be declined because of the public pressure. I do not know if this was actually true or not but there is no smoke without fire , still I do not get what fire can behind this smoke , the AUC administration is not that stupid to accept or even to think about that offer !!
I heard that the modern academy wants to buy the building , I also heard that there is a plan to make it a cultural center like the El-Sawy Cultural wheel and I do not what is true and what is false !!
The problem in the old Falki is its huge ugly library whose demolition will cost a huge fortune no one can bear it easily. I never liked that building anyway , I hate that modern meaningless style , I think now the university hates it too , it is big cement block that stands against selling the whole old campus !!
