The Plateau is an extension to Citystars Mall at the front yard of Gates 1, 2, and 3 on Omar Ibn Al-Khattab Street in Nasr City, Egypt.

On a land area of 7,500 m2 and with a built-up area of 2,090 m2, the project comprises the following
• two glass buildings housing two restaurants each
• a large fountain topped by a magnificent large glass pyramid and surrounded by elevated public
spaces and outdoor restaurants & cafés
• the Boulevard: a charming wide passageway between the hotel and the office towers; it is redesigned to be the most vibrant part of the development

The project includes renovations to the façade of Citystars Mall to match the Plateau’s theme with its new architectural elements, such as atriums, multimedia screens, lighting fixtures, and stone cladding.

The design is inspired by the architectural styles of Ancient Egypt. It rhymes with the architectural style characterizing the existing complex. The simple, yet powerful, design utilizes angled shapes to create magnificent expressions and inspire the exterior massing, overlapping volumes, and textures of the Plateau.

The glass pyramid is implemented in such a way that emphasizes the main entrance, with historical symbolism serving as a focal point complementing the scale and design of the entire mall.
