Plateau, business district of Abidjan, joined GBD Innovation Club
Plateau is the smallest commune in the district of Abidjan in terms of area and population. The town receives nearly two million visitors a day.
With its towers and buildings overlooking the Ébrié lagoon, Plateau is nicknamed by some “little Paris” or “little Manhattan”.
Since the creation of the railway district, to accommodate the terminus of the Abidjan-Niger railway line, Plateau has rapidly developed to become the political, administrative, commercial and financial center of Côte d’Ivoire, and holds an important place in West Africa.
Constantly evolving, the town will soon house the tallest tower in Africa which will culminate at 283 meters with a symmetrical geometry, resembling an African Mask.
Plateau brings together a wide variety of restaurants, cafes and hotels as well as many squares, relaxation and leisure areas.
The Plateau of tomorrow aims to be a model of Smart-City in Africa and in the world.
