MILAN | Milanofiori Sud | 212m | 180m x 2 | Canceled

Milanofiori Sud is another ambitious project for Milan.

The area of 1.086.137 mq in the South of Milan will see an incredible development with the construction of 3 towers, a Business Park, the Humanitas Life Science Park and an important area dedicated to the Medical research. Also the area will be reached by an extension (U/C) of the Metro.

amazing. in milan, which didn't get any attention in the last years, there is more going on than in london, where there has been a lot of talk in the past.

what towers are u/c in milan now or in 2008?

I'm amazed too.

After 10 years of total immobility, now there is a boom.

Anyway most of the projects of redevelopment (there are not only towers, but entire areas completely re-projected and re-designed) will be U/C in 2008.

Actually the most advanced are the tower of Region Lombardy HQ(the 3d just in this section), and the WJC (http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=480461), talking about "business towers", there are also minor residential tower U/C and in the other main projects worksites, in this moment, there are "cleaning" works and demolishes of old former industrial buildings.

The idea is to finish the "clusters" of 'scrapers for the 2015, the year of the World Expo.

I love this project and especially its main tower! ..to me it's the most beautiful skyscraper ever designed in Italy (and among the greatest in Europe) since the Pirelli.

Elegant. Compact. Unique. Can't wait to see it!


some few renderings.











For the last 2, thanks to Skymino.

For this project they'll start works at begin of 2008

While for the Milanofiori Nord project (no towers overthere) they're working very fast: for pics check Italian Forum, I'm a lazy guy

No, you are speaking nonsense...

Milan is really booming, and a lot of new skyscrapers are going to be completed soon.

You probably mean the project of 3 towers designed by Kenzo Tange




Unfortunately it was cancelled: but this is not Milanofiori Sud - the topic of the thread - but Milanofiori Nord (just a kilometer North of it, as tou can understand by its name )

Milanofiori Nord has now a new project without towers which is u/c

Here it is



The area under construction









While Milanofiori Sud is this one



Here in the last pic you can see the two areas: Milanofiori Sud on the left, and Milanofiori Nord on the right

The new milano will have at least 3 main skyline clusters:
Porta Nuova + Central Station with 7 100m+ (1 UC and the other in prep) and other 3 already built

City Life with 3 170m, 185m, 218m and other 2 100m+ in prep

Milanofiori SUD


We could then consider the 20 110 m towers in Sesto San Giovanni (approved but not imminent)

and the proposals of the towers (one 200m+) close to the EXPO site that should be built in the case of a positive decision for the expo


It is not New York or Bubai but I think you can call it Skyline

According to a forumer in the Italian section, works might have started some days ago.
