About project

A large-scale, mixed-use development in Milan that reknits the cityscape

Comprised of several buildings, including residential, office, and retail components, Porta Nuova, Garibaldi is sited on a 17.3-acre plot adjacent to the Garibaldi train station. Prior to the redevelopment, decaying industrial facilities marred the urban fabric, and long-abandoned railyards severed the site.

The carefully developed master plan effectively reknits the cityscape, creating a vibrant urban core that will be, to a large extent, a car-free zone, with a strong focus on humane pedestrian activity at the base of the buildings.

Most importantly, a new public space — the Piazza Circolare — was created, bridging roads and metro lines. The key infrastructures are underground, guaranteeing the efficiency of the transit system and respecting the pedestrian-oriented character of the area.
