Citystars Heliopolis marks Cairo's pioneering venture into integrated real estate, boasting a seamless fusion of amenities and attractions. This expansive development, spanning over 800,000 sqm in the heart of New Cairo, encompasses a diverse array of offerings. At its core lies the bustling Stars Centre, a vibrant hub comprising 607 retail tenant units, 7 department stores, and 34 restaurants, all nestled within a dynamic shopping and entertainment complex.

Adjacent to the Stars Centre, the prestigious Star Capital rises, offering 70,000 sqm of class A office space, catering to the needs of modern businesses. Complementing the commercial aspects, the luxurious Star Living residential enclave beckons with its upscale apartments and amenities, providing a coveted lifestyle experience. Amidst the urban landscape, four prominent hotels stand tall, offering unparalleled hospitality. Intercontinental Cairo Citystars, with its 830 rooms and suites, Holiday Inn Cairo Citystars featuring 311 rooms, and Staybridge Suites Cairo Citystars boasting 140 studios and apartments, collectively cater to diverse traveler preferences.

This visionary project isn't merely about commerce and hospitality; it's a holistic destination. A stunning glass pyramid serves as a captivating centerpiece, while leisure facilities and a medical center cater to residents and visitors alike. Moreover, the complex features 16 cinemas, 2 exhibition halls, and a food court, ensuring an immersive entertainment experience. Inspired by Egypt's rich cultural heritage, XCASSIA's design approach pays homage to the Pharaohs era. The architectural aesthetic seamlessly blends ancient motifs with modern functionality, creating a sense of timeless elegance. Ceramic-tiled exteriors in sand brown hues harmonize with Cairo's landscape, while meticulous attention to detail, including small balconies and tower crowns, adds a distinctive charm to each structure.

Citystars Heliopolis isn't just a development; it's a testament to XCASSIA's vision and expertise, setting new standards for integrated real estate in Egypt and beyond.
