The Citystars Heliopollis is one of the largest commercial developments in the Middle East today.

With a total built-up area of about 800,000m2 and a perimeter of 1 kilometre, this project occupies an entire city block and is the largest project undertaken by +Cassia to date.

It incorporates four hotels, a shopping center with department stores, exhibition halls, hypermarkets, as well as cinemas. The project will also house a giant glass pyramid, upmarket residential and office spaces, leisure facilities and a medical center. The style adopted for the design was purposely contextual.

Combining many features of pharaonic architecture and details, the project nevertheless remains a modern and commercial development with massing arrangements intended to accentuate the core of the project''''s commercial functions: the Stars Center.

Its program consists of 607 retail tenant units, 7 Department Stores, 34 restaurants, 288 storage units, 16 cinemas, 2 exhibition halls, 1 food court and a total carpark capacity of 6,000 cars.
