The New Bazaar/Avni Rustemi Square area of Tirana is a symbol of traditional urban life of the city, and a destination of commercial value. The area houses more than 15 sites of cultural heritage protected by law, currently hidden under rundown facades, obsolete infrastructure, and a generally unappealing commercial space. The New Bazar is a perfect candidate for a natural pedestrian mall and tourism destination, where private businesses and public representation can be formed under the TID/BID model. The AADF has partnered with the Government of Albania (Ministry of Culture and Ministry of Urban Development), Municipality of Tirana and the local business community to revitalize the New Bazaar/Avni Rustemi of Tirana. The bazaar will become one of the main tourist attractions in Tirana. It is expected that AADF restauration portion will be completed by April 2016. The AADF will also support businesses operating in the area with businesses advisory services as well as small grants in order to improve their efficiency and make the best use of the new opportunities which will be created. A businesses association will be created in partnership with the Municipality of Tirana which will oversee the daily management of the area.
