Rio de JaneiroAs part of a city revitalization project for the Olympic Games in August, Rio de Janeiro received a new seafront promenade built in the port area of the city, reported the promenade builders.

 
The promenade is located between the revitalized Maua square, the first instalment of the tourist strip that opened earlier in April, and the old port warehouses of Rio de Janeiro.
The 40,000-square meter tourist boulevard has large gardens and spaces for pedestrians and cyclists.

 
The one-kilometre long boulevard together with Maua square, where the futuristic museum ‘Museum of Tomorrow (Museo de Manana)’, a work of the Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, totals 80,000 square meters.

 
The boulevard delivered Wednesday by the builders will be officially opened by the mayor before the Olympic Games and will be monitored 24 hours a day with seven security cameras.

 
According to the Concessionaire Porto Novo, the consortium responsible for the project, the renewal of the entire port area of Rio de Janeiro was inspired by the revitalization project of the port of Barcelona in 1992, when the Spanish city hosted the 1992 Olympic Games.
