Micro-districts are localized, compact urban areas within a city or larger urban environment that are distinct in character, often with a unique identity, purpose, or focus. These areas typically feature a concentration of diverse amenities, services, and community-driven initiatives, making them hubs of activity and innovation within the broader urban landscape.
