What a nice upgrade. That will surely make a big improvement to the streetscape!

The current shabby looking thing (if I have understood the location correctly): https://maps.google.cl/maps?q=Milano...5.33,,0,-15.73

Yeah, correct!

It's definitely an improvement, although I think the old building was already one of the nicest (or "less bad") of that street. I think it'll bring a lot of improvements, especially in terms of urban street design (i.e. it should transform the horrible parking area nearby into a nice place with trees).

The downside might be the straight fašade on Via Gioia, which is much taller and will be aligned to the street: I'm a afraid it could become a little too "oppressive" and commieblock-like.
The other downside is that the parking area nearby had been proposed to become a skyscraper (the new City Hall). But the idea had already been aborted because of lack of money, so... I'm happy with the pedestrian square!

!
I don't think it will be a problem given the with of the street there. However in general then it would perhaps be an idea to introduce setback regulations similar to the what New York used to have in order to counter it?

Are there many skyscraper/highrise plans for nearby locations? Seems like a very fitting place to develop a cluster.

BTW, as I don't really know where to ask: Are you really allowed to park your car on the sidewalk in Milan/Italy? As at least four individuals cars have parked on it here right after each other! https://maps.google.cl/maps?q=Milano...,,0,13.03&z=16

Is that really legal?

Yes we are totally uncivilized, the "sidewalk parking" is tolerated in Milan, because the sidewalks are really huge... but I know this is not an excuse.

There is also a practical reason, when they wash the streets there's no place to put the cars to, so they usually place them on the sidewalk just for the time of the operation (normally by night). But now we are using a new street-washing machine so even this excuse is not valid anymore.

Conclusion: we are uncivilized.

You crazy Italians! You would be shot dead here for even thinking about parking your car like that. But as long as it don't cause disruption for passer-byes, then I do like your more laid back way of dealing with it.

The problem is that it creates many issues with disables and people carrying bags, and it also accelerates urban decay when people park on grass areas like here, in front of my university http://goo.gl/maps/eiOhU

This part is very interesting because you have parking on street which costs 1.20 Ç for 2 hours, and it's quite empty. Behind, you have "free" illegal parking on the grass of the walking path. The illegal parking is very crowded, because it's tolerated by the local police in order to counter the big lack of parking lots in the city.


As for regulations on tall buildings, there's a regional rule which asks buildings' top to leave a smaller than 60░ angle from the top of the surrounding buildings to the top of the tall building. But if you look at here, something must have gone wrong: http://goo.gl/maps/FdeYa

I have to admit that I have only saw this in Milan and in really no other city, in Italy or elsewhere.
Something have gone wrong with the cars and engine in milan from the start, when they (our grandpas!) choose to cover the channels to make streets for cars, lots of cars, everywhere cars. It's a city that has a really worship for cars, engines and machines. A steampunk city!
I often see Milan as a sort of extreme west, because western values (or even the typical western not-so-much-values, like cars) are really in your face and somehow exasperated
