Hilton (NYSE: HLT) today announced the signing of Hilton Cairo New Capital Tower, in partnership with Amazon for Urban Development. The new-build property is currently under construction and will occupy the top floors of the iconic, mixed-use tower sitting in the heart of Egypt’s highly anticipated New Administrative Capital (NAC).
Located in the heart of the NAC’s masterplan, Hilton Cairo New Capital Tower is ideally located in the Central Business District, surrounded by both government and private offices, the Diplomatic Quarter, as well as several key residential areas within NAC. The property is in close proximity to the recently inaugurated Capital International Airport and will have convenient access to the transportation network connecting NAC to other parts of Cairo, including the Mono-Rail and Cairo Light Rail lines.
Carlos Khneisser, vice president, development, Middle East & Africa, Hilton, said: “We are excited to be working closely with Amazon for Urban Development to bring the award-winning Hilton Hotels & Resorts brand to Cairo’s New Administrative Capital. As a key central and business hub, the hotel sits in a unique location, giving guests access to one of the capital’s vibrant business communities.”
