About Nile City North Tower

Nile City comprises a shopping mall, two office towers and one “V”-shaped five-star hotel tower. The top five floors of the south office tower house luxury residential apartments independent from the office component. Nile City’s architecture shows cultural-historic links with traditional Levantine architecture. The variety of the masses and detail allows for a clear view of the various buildings, their functions and their entrances. Decorative pillars and monumental porticos at the ground level, and pergolas and golden cupolas at the top of the towers, along with pilasters, cornices, banding, balconies and colored stone give Nile City its particular character.

The twin towers feature strong vertical divisions and large, glazed panels. The horizontal division of the towers’ elevations are achieved with cornices, while the setbacks of the upper levels accentuate the visual effect of the gold cupolas crowning the buildings. Careful analysis and design ensured that the buildings did not stand directly opposite each other, thus creating a compatible relationship with their surroundings whilst also providing views towards the pyramids.
