Renovations in the downtown area

Downtown Bogotá faces a transformation

With an investment of over 15,0000 million pesos, Bogotá’s historic city center has a new face. The district has reconstructed the streets between the iconic Plaza Bolívar and the Jiménez Avenue as part of a mega plan to recover the downtown area. These streets are now pedestrian only, full of trees, benches, and very tourist - friendly.

The project also aimed at bringing back security to the neighborhood by adding a complete and sophisticated surveillance system as well as several police posts and a new public lighting system.

The positive outcome is the result of several months of hard work, which involved the conservation of the historic facades and heritage areas, as well as the relocation of street vendors, whom for years had been cluttering in almost every corner of the city’s downtown area. Over 150 vendors have already accepted micro credits to start their own formal business.

The administration now faces the arduous task of maintaining the recovered area clean and in good shape. It is expected that by March 2017 the streets north of the Avenida Jiménez up to Calle 26 will also become pedestrian only.
