46160466

The Dominican government has commissioned a market study to reposition El Conde Street as a tourism and business destination within the Historical Center Tourism Development Project. Along with efforts to improve the area, attempts will be made to stop urban sprawl. Dominican Today reports:

Deputy Minister and project director Maribel Villalona [. . .] revealed that the architecture of what the iconic pedestrian way’s physical transformation will become, has already been designed.

“We’re working closely with El Conde’s Merchants Association (Asoconde) to see which solutions can be applied to the issue of urban decay of the public space and how they can change the concept store they have today to ones better suited to the current demand,” the official said. The sprawl throughout the Colonial Zone in general and El Conde in particular has forced many stores to shutter their doors in recent years.
