New Giza

Cairo, Egypt

One of Cairo’s new satellite cities, the schematic master plan for New Giza includes a campus for Johns Hopkins University, an MGM resort hotel, and dense cultural, leisure, office and shopping facilities for local residents and visitors alike. Gensler capitalized on the dramatic landform of the 105-hectare former quarry site to create distinct characters for each district. Two of those districts — the Hotel and the Hill Town — are planned on high ridges and sloped plateaus to take maximum advantage of the site’s spectacular views to the pyramids of Giza.
