MILAN
Porta Nuova


IMG_9398 by Luca Andrea Doria

Current projects ongoing: UnipolSai Tower (also called the Bird Nest), designed by Italian architect Mario Cucinella, to be built between UniCredit Tower and Solaria Tower. Archistar Cesàr Pelli is back in Milan: he designed a new highrise Melchiorre Gioia 22.

Old UTC Tower (1960s) is under restoration and Galfa Tower (1950s) under refurbishment: the last one will host hotel, luxury residences, roof bar, and services. Bonnet Tower is expected to be refurbished too (the new design was conceived by London-based architecture firm PLP). Other projects such as The Corner are under refurbishment too.

A Chinese fund is investing in Winter Gardens: project provides for the construction of luxury apartments with services and retail open to the city. Italy's insurance group Unipol will refurbish the so-called Rasoio. The Coima Pavilion and Amazon headquarters were already completed, while it is still under construction the "Library of Trees" public park, designed Dutch architect Petra Blaisse.

A news of previous week is that the district may be enriched with a new skyscraper or iconic building probably designed by archistar Frank Gehry (but the rumor was not still confirmed). Last but not least, is that the city of Milan is discussing the reopening of its ancient canals system (designed by Leonardo Da Vinci). If massive project is approved, a canal could pass between the skyscrapers and the park in the future.




Still U/C with a Zaha Hadid's Generali Tower that waits to be completed and a third highrise designed by Daniel Libeskind to be built soon. On November 30, however, opens the Shopping District (mall + steet + plaza) hosting a multiplex cinema, department store, fashion/wellness/home&design/techonology stores, bars and restaurants, services. All surrounded by green spaces and pedestrian area (spanning over a total surface of 36.6 hectares). You can reach the place with public transports (M5 lilac line - Tre Torri stop). Soon the area will be enriched with new museum within Palazzo delle Scintille (1-2).

In short time, Canary Wharf itself will be or have the best Modern European Skyline.
My opinion!

1. London
2. Paris
3. Frankfurt

The rest doesn't matter!

Said it before, I like the Hague - no great excitement, but I like its Dutch pragmatic insistence.

The Hague is my neighbour city. The Hague has a really nice high-rise cluster. It's the most beautifull high-rise cluster in The Netherlands, but it is to small for a good skyline
Skyline-wise Rotterdam has a by far better skyline. Lots going on there now and in the main future.
Will keep you updated about that.

^ In retrospect perhaps my earlier comment was re Rotterdam, but the Dutch pragmatism still holds.
