Matrô Bus Barra
Designed to bring together work spaces, shopping, educational facilities and leisure all in one place, Downtown was the first 'lifestyle mall' in Rio de Janeiro. Attempting to recreate a small-town atmosphere, the pedestrian boulevards are light and full of fashion and beauty shopping options, gyms and a large medical centre. Offices and a variety of courses from business to Japanese language are held, with the obligatory chain bars also well represented for that all important down time, if not particularly originality.
