A huge empty space in the center of the "Trakia" quarter in Plovdiv will become a green neighborhood of a new generation, without cars. Construction is expected to start by the end of April. Curiously, no cars will be allowed in the above-ground territory of the green quarter.

Residents of the complexes and workers in the area will park in the underground level and the shops will be supplied through the underground infrastructure. Connection between the two levels will be through elevators and escalators. Shops, galleries and bookstores on both sides of the central street will be built, too. A square with a large amphitheater where concerts and performances will be held will be created in the center of the green neighborhood.
