MILAN | Area Falck

Area Falck

A very big masterplan approved and projected by Renzo Piano with 9 different areas:


1) Residential Towers (12 Towers of about 80 meters).

2) City of Health (Hospital and Medical Research Center).

3) New Railway Station and Underground of Sesto (It will be a suspended - like a bridge station).

4) New Park (450.000 square meters with over 10.000 new trees).

5) Hotels District (near the Railway Station and the City of Health).

6) Sport Complex (for different sports including a new Ice Arena).

7) Business District (innovative buildings for offices).

8) New Mall (a big shopping center of over 80.000 square meters).

9) Cultural Spaces - Museum.








City of Health:

IT's a so "meh" plan compared to the first masterplan of 2006

This is the "area Falck" anyway: http://goo.gl/maps/t3KDd It is a former smelter on Sesto San Giovanni, what was the last filthy big factory that finally closed down.

Surely it's not 80 m high, but over 120 (at least)

Probably 80 m is the average height of towers, so it could be that some towers will be over 100 m.
