Skies of Ejabah

Makkah, Saudi Arabia

After winning an international design competition between five global architecture firms, Gensler was appointed to lead the design of this mixed-use development set to anchor a central district of Makkah with 1.6 million-square-feet of retail, restaurants, meeting facilities and hotel accommodations. Gensler worked to unlock the value of the sites challenging mountainous terrain, while establishing the project as a premier retail, entertainment and hospitality destination within walking distance to the Holy Mosque. Designed to achieve a minimum rating of LEED® Silver, the project is expected to set a new standard for future development within the Makkah community.
