Marrakech, Morocco — The Morocco Film City Project promises to be the most dynamic development of its kind in all of Morocco—a truly world class destination that will draw visitors from throughout Europe, the Mediterranean, North Africa, the Middle East, and beyond. On a 420-hectare site outside Marrakech, the development features dramatic views of the Atlas Mountains and captures the cultural flavor and sense of adventure found in the souks and medinas of historic Morocco. The well-planned resort community also features a film studio and European-styled pleasure garden as key entertainment venues. The intent of the extensive program is to create an entertainment and leisure destination that represents the remarkable local culture, art, and architecture of Marrakech, as well as a taste of the diverse culture throughout Morocco. The presence of a working film production studio and its related attractions, combined with a pleasure garden of rides and attractions will lend western-style entertainment to the inherent cultural context of the overall development. MSI was retained by Grant Leisure, Inc. as Master Planner and Creative Director of the project. Other key project team members include: ILM-THR Portugal, WSP Engineers, Baker Wilkins, and SMC Leisure. The developer, Tritel Management Group, expects complete financing to be in place in the near future.
