Makkah Technology Valley

Makkah, Saudi Arabia

In the highly competitive world of innovation and commercialization, people aspire to work, learn, share and live in highly connected and attractive communities. The past model for a single-zoned, insular, and quiet research park is transforming into a modern and vibrant mixed-use Knowledge Town. Quality of life is now a fundamental component of increasing competitiveness and attracting talent. Makkah Technology Valley aligns the need for a technology-driven innovation and entrepreneurship park with the university’s goals. Our vision is to create a new destination where boundaries are blurred and where planned and spontaneous creative friction is encouraged. To support this aspiration, Gensler developed a clear, flexible, and plausible development framework at Makkah Technology Valley, where researchers, innovators, entrepreneurs, and their families can thrive.
