Photos of New Asmara Housing Construction

Housing construction in Asmara has been growing on a steady process. Much of Eritrea's development budget is dedicated to food security, education, roads, micro-dams, health and water preservation, construction of new housing has gotten the least priority. In the next few years however, housing development in Eritrea will get a much needed priority. In this article, you'll see pictures of homes and apartment buildings that have been constructed or are being constructed in Asmara, Eritrea.

The Halibet housing complex as seen below is currently being built around the Halibet hospital. These modern homes and apartment complexes are going to have a soccer field, a gym, a basketball court, a tennis court, a swimming pool, a small park and will have some of the most modern houses and apartment complexes present in the horn of Africa.

This photo below is located just outside of Asmara, around north-west of the city. Since Yahoo's satellite maps for Eritrea haven't been updated in over a year and a half, we can clearly see that this area had no new construction or any housing present. However, if you look at the Google'a satellite photo below this one, you'll see new apartment buildings being constructed. Google's satellite updates Eritrea's image every 90 days or so, so anyone looking to see for new development in Asmara can use Yahoo's outdated maps with Google's updated maps to see if any changes have taken place within the last year and half.

The following pictures are of housing constructions in Asmara in the past decade.  Much of the new construction to take place in Asmara has been around the Sembel and Kahawta areas.

Photo below shows a very modern looking house with a swimming pool.

  7. There are people around the globe who have no clue what Eritrea is or stands is for such people that the expression.... a photo / picture speaks a thousand words/or volumes... is a perfect choice here.

    To those who have an open mind and are willing to observe critically to the progress taking place in Eritrea I would like them to be equally critical about their thinking, their prejudice and the world around them.
    Eritrea is about a proud people who want to improve their lot and wish others would do the same.

  8. I am Western educated African some how when i see the construction to me no measure to say W W W W W W, to put in volume like liter or to put in container like kg, really is it built in private own person or by state?, i mean that my appreciation both the sate despite the wonderful Art Deco, keep it up. I am West African with my capital between 20000 and 30000 euro.

  9. Beautiful buildings. Just one question: Very unususl to have such good houses but the roads are unmade dirt? Once the roads and drainage are completed, they will look fantastic.
