Xhavid Sheqyri Demneri Street (Albanian: Rruga Xhavit Shyqyri Demneri) is a street in Tirana. It was formerly known as Mustafa Lleshi Street It was given this name in 2010, to honour Xhavit Shyqyri Demneri, an Albanian football hero.
In the spring of 2010, Tirana officials began ordering that all streets must have visible name signs. Without warning or consultation with the community, a large section of Mustafa Lleshi Street was changed to Xhavit Shyqyri Demneri Street, forcing residents to re-submit all property documents for updating. Many residents now living on Xhavit Shyqyri Demneri continue to refer to their street as Mustafa Lleshi.
On Sunday, March 27, 2011, family of Xhavit Demneri, friends, fellow sportsmen and the Municipality of Tirana paid their respects to the memory of Demneri by placing a plaque below the street sign, followed by a reception, at the corner of Mustafa Lleshi Street and Xhavit Shyqyri Demneri street.
