Revitalization of downtown Manaus, Brazil to restore two historic areas

The revitalization project of Tenreiro Aranha Square and of the area surrounding the Adolpho Lisboa Market in Manaus was presented on the morning of August 11th by the Director-President of the Municipal Urban Planning Institute (Implurb), Roberto Moita.

Regarding the revitalization of Tenreiro Aranha Square, Moita explained that it is expected to bring the space up to the accessibility standards, install a new public lighting system of the same quality as others found on the streets of Manaus, as well as signage, outdoor furniture, and landscaping.

The project also intends to rescue the square’s 1920s architecture. In his presentation, the director-president reported that the revitalization projects will also cover the area around Adolpho Lisboa Municipal Market, which includes the roads Barés, Barão de São Domingos, Miranda Leão, Travessa Tabelião Lessa, Avenida Manaus Moderna and the Praça do Mercado (Market Square).

The work is going to restore the original elements of the pavement on the sidewalks and streets, enhancing the environment and trees in the area,” Moita said.
