WATG Completes Masterplan for Red Sea Resort

Wimberley Allison Tong & Goo has completed the master plan for the Sahl Hasheesh International Resort -Phase III, a large mixed-use development on the Egyptian Red Sea.

The 4,090-hectare (10,105 acres) site in Hurghada, Egypt will feature civic centers, a new university, schools, business park, apartments and hotels. Designed for client Egyptian Resorts Company (ERC), the development is seeking to claim the title of world's largest resort.

"It was important for the client to have a development that was viable," said Perry Brown, senior vice president of WATG, which was founded in Honolulu,Hawaii and has offices in Orlando, Seattle, London and Singapore. "This master plan was originally only a resort community, but the client envisions a development that includes appropriate civic infrastructure to support the resort development."

The master plan calls for 58 resort parcels organized in districts that include resort and hospitality managed facilities, hotels, serviced apartments, villas, commercial areas, retail, entertainment facilities, a golf course, sports academies, equestrian areas and other tourism-based amenities.
