Banque Misr Building at the New Capital

Project Description

Capitalizing on its long-established legacy for a whole century in service of the national economy, Banque Misr, the first national banking industry giant, introduces its well-engineered built masterpiece in close vicinity to the Central Bank of Egypt, to empower BM brand and urban visuality in Egypt’s New Capital.

Contemporary wholly glazed facades were inspired by BM’s legacy, as well as the building’s impressive large scale, with extensive structurally glazed frontage, monumentally recessed entrance, giant pillared walls, emerging horizontal shades, and dramatic roof overhang. All these elements impose a sculptural form of symbolic presentation on the building, as a landmark and a gateway to the Money and Business District.

Built in a premium strategic location, BM’s massive scenic building stands on Plot No. 23A.2, with a plot area of 11,245 m2, 4,322 m2 of footprint area, and up to a total height of 34 meters, comprising two basement floors, a ground floor, and seven upper floors. The ground floor houses main and VIP entrances, a banking hall including screened teller counters with vast back-office areas, service areas including restrooms and pantry, and entry/ exit ramps to underground parking in basements; accommodating up to 400 parking spaces. Floors from 1st to 7th are allocated to BM’s office areas.
