Inauguration of the Samanbahce project
(Samanbahce , 18 May 2004)

The EU-funded Partnership for the Future Programme (PFF) is pleased to announce the completion of the project: The urban upgrading of the Samanbahce area, under the framework of the Nicosia Master Plan.

Being the oldest known social housing estate in Nicosia, Samanbahce has been transformed into a charming traditional neighborhood.

The project included the upgrading of the facades, roofs of the traditional buildings, infrastructure and parking area for residents, landscaping as well as pedestrianisation of open spaces for public use, opening of a cafeteria and creation of a playground for children.

“The residents of Samanbahce now have a lovely place in which to live” said Tiziana Zennaro, Programme Manager of the UNDP Partnership for the Future Programme.

“Now we can walk in the street” was a comment of a resident living in Samanbahce.

The PFF is strongly supporting the Nicosia Master Plan in its efforts to revitalise the Walled City of Nicosia and to sensitise Nicosia residents on the conservation of their architectural and cultural heritage.
