Lugano | Nuovo Quartiere Cornaredo | 1'000'000 m3



Nuovo Quartiere Cornaredo, Lugano

The international competition on urban planning for the new Cornaredo district (NQC) wishes to offer a moment of reflection on the search for innovative solutions to the development of a new "gateway" for the city of Lugano in an area with great development potential.

In 2010, a new road tunnel in the north of the city will link the centre of Lugano with the motorway. In addition to the 3km-long tunnel, other transport management measures are also planned, including a large intermodal node with park-and-ride facilities for commuters.

The agglomeration of Lugano is one of the most important urban and economic centres in Switzerland. The aim of the international competition was to find urban planning solutions for the one million square metres of the NQC, which will prove attractive for both users and investors. The winning entry, which integrate the functional requirements of mobility with the formal aspects of qualitative urban development, resulted in a Masterplan NQC that will now be legaly formalised.



The medium height of the buildings will range from 30m to a maximum of 60m (although the maximum height could be increased in the future).
This quarter will have a new transport system and a different allocation of traffic from what Lugano has now, the project will concentrate the traffic flow alongside the river Cassarate.


Here are some images of the project:

As you can see, this will be a long but huge project for Lugano, economic and population wise.

Please, if you have any other information regarding this project such as renders or other stuff, please post here. Thanks for reading

Actually, i think the size is just right, expanding the city to the tunnel. Also with the expansion of the Lugano/Agno Airport, they're building many other things in that area too. Basically, if you look at Lugano from above now, it will look like a huge construction site, cranes everywhere.

If you mean what's going to happen to them, then i'll answer: the Resega will be staying as it is from what i understood, but the stadium will be demolished in part and rebuilt to fit the standards of a Super League stadium, the area around the stadium with become a sports arena with an olympic swimmingpool and other things, that is what ive understood.

BIG UPDATE


I was around the area today and decided to go around a bit and take some photos.

The photos show the area which will become the future district of the new Cornaredo. Right now, the area is known for high drug abuse and violence (also because of there being the Resega and the Cornaredo Stadium). This is not one of the nicest areas in Lugano, as you can see.

After the project is fully completed, this area will hopefully become wealthy. No construction will start i think untill the new tunnel will be completed.

P.S: Sorry if some photos are a bit blury, but i didn't want to show my camera phone to everyone just to be carefull .


Here are the photos:
















The Resega:




Lugano's famous hooligans, RDN:




















Looking towards the city:
















Where the tunnel will be:






















Not a very touristy place at the moment but hopefully it will be all different in the future.

In Lugano, it's a bit different, the poorest area isn't necessarily the most dangerous. From personal information as ive lived here enough to know the districts well, id put it like this:

Most Dangerous (robbery, gang violence, stabbings, shootings, crime in general,...):

1st: Viganello (mostly gang violence)
2nd: Molino Nuovo (mostly crime in general)
3rd: Paradiso (drug flow and robbery)

Most Poorest (drug dealing, homeless people, abandoned buildings,...):

1st: Bozzoreda (many commie blocks and heavy drug flow)
2nd: Besso [highest drug flow in Lugano, also the district which gives the name "Marijuana Capital of Europe" to Lugano (Statistics show that Lugano has a bigger cannabis problem than Milan & London!)]
3rd: Molino Nuovo (quite a few homeless people and ALOT of abbandoned buildings)


All in all, the area in the photos is pretty poor but i wouldnt say it's in the top 3 in Lugano.

Quello era per descrivere cosa intendo per "Most Dangerous". Non è proprio riferito alla città. Comunque di violenza giovanile e poveri senzatetto ce ne sono, penso che lo sai anche te.

Ah ok. Altrimenti avresti spaventato qualcuno...
La violenza giovanile e la povertà (intesa piuttosto come working poor) esistono, ma onestamente di senzatetto a Lugano ne ho visti veramente pochissimi.

Si, di senzatetto ce ne sono pochi, io vedo spesso uno sdraiato per terra davanti alla migros di Molino Nuovo, uno sotto un ripostiglio di bici vicino alla gerra e uno in Via Industria in un parchetto ormai abbandonato.

Belle le foto da Canobbio!
Qui si può invece vedere lo stato d'avanzamento della galleria (status of the work at the Vedeggio-Cassarate tunnel):

LUGANO
Il Nuovo quartiere di Cornaredo è pronto a tingersi di verde


Quote:
LUGANO – La Commissione della pianificazione del territorio della Città di Lugano condivide la volontà, espressa da una mozione dei Verdi, di fare del Nuovo quartiere di Cornaredo (Nqc) un’isola ecologica ed energicamente autosufficiente. La mozione generica inoltrata dai Verdi sottolinea “la forte valenza ecologica” che un quartiere ecosostenibile costituirebbe per l’area in cui sorgerebbe.

Con la propria mozioni i Verdi chiedevano di inserire, per quanto concerne la realizzazione di nuovi edifici e la ristrutturazione di quelli già presenti, “chiari e rigorosi vincoli pianificatori” che garantirebbero un consumo energetico minimo (Risparmio energetico) e l’utilizzo di fonti energetiche pulite e rinnovabili (Rinnovabilità energetica).

Come riferisce oggi LaRegioneTicino, la Commissione della pianificazione informa di ritenere evasa la mozione inoltrata da Giovanni Cattaneo ed ha indicato in un anno, dall’approvazione in Consiglio comunale della mozione, i tempi di consegna dello studio di fattibilità. Sta ora al Municipio attivarsi affinché il Piano regolatore del Nqc comprenda gli standard Minergie (e simili) per gli edifici pubblici e quelli privati.
