As part of the municipality's urban overhaul program that aims to bring life back to the inner-city neighborhoods, Athens' has revived its Theatrou Square, which is off the central Varvakeios Market.
The first seven shops as part of the POLI² pilot project, which subsidizes neighborhood upgrade and renovation projects, have opened for business.
At the recent announcement of the shops opening, the mayor highlighted the symbolic meaning saying, "Light always drives darkness away. That’s what we are doing now on Theatrou Square near the central market, which will also be carried out at the Merchant’s Arcade on Voulis St."
The selection process of businesses lasted four months, including the renovation of the shops and handing these over to the winning teams, which are Astika Motiva, Niroi, I Love Athens, Creators of Cosmos, Book & Play, COCO-Mat.bike, and O Horos.
