Margaret Quarter is a new Urban Revitalization Program of Budapest II. District Municipality, focusing on Margaret Boulevard and its neighborhood.
The Program aims to create a local ecosystem where community and cultural initiatives are favored in addition to quality commercial services. The Municipality encourages service providers and entrepreneurs to prioritize community and artistic values so that a diverse and lively district can develop to delight residents and visitors. The idea is to awaken the neighborhood under a unified brand name full of cultural and community values, environmental awareness, and economic sustainability.
