A Neighborhood Sleeps... Welcome to Beraki, the Residential City

Yohannes Mengsteab


Compared to Ioannes and Selam, Beraki is not as old as one may think. Founded as a small agricultural community on a group of 5 islands that locals used canoes to navigate through, it grew as middle to low income locals from Selam began to move en masse to this small town due to high residential demand that made it very expensive to reside in the city. A rapid increase in commercial, industrial and legislative activity coupled with gentrification in Ioannes contributed greatly to the Beraki's residential growth. The city developed rapidly and it, similar to Ioannes, was forced to destroy a great number of historic buildings, develop the land on agricultural farms, and reclaim the rest.


It is now houses very modern apartment buildings for workers who commute to Ioannes or Selam. The only historic buildings it houses are the government building in the center island.


Now the municipal government is facing a spillover of commercial and industrial demand from Selam and Ioannes, succumbing a little, with much opposition, to the pressure by commercial enterprises and industries.
