Gensler has won four commissions in Riyadh’s 5 million sq m custom-built financial region - The King Abdullah Financial District (KAFD). 

The projects include a five-star hotel and an office development.

The firm already works in a string of what it describes as “emerging cities” including Dubai, Abu Dhabi and St Petersburg.

“Financial centre design for emerging markets is very different from that of historically-known financial districts,” said Ian Mulcahey, Gensler’s principal. “They are often in cities with an underdeveloped service sector employment base, looking to provide accommodation for financial companies, and in many cases they need a comprehensively planned district which responds to that context.”
