"most adjectives are also feminine" ? ? ? !
how about ALL adjectives are feminine,
and those examples aren't examples at all?
The first are just smixut "construct" `ir "city" leaning on a noun, and Is 1.26
has an implied subject shem 'name', or no subject (indefinite 'it' if you wish)
with a predicate complement 'just city'.

Hebrew `ir is a feminine noun,
because that is how it is used in Biblical Hebrew.
