DOSSIER: Former hippodrome on sale

Snai, a subsidiary of Investindustrial and Palladio Finanziaria, tries to accelerate the sale plan of an area near San Siro stadium, which was used as hippodrome until 2012. Lazard proposed itself as a sale consultant and has already probed the interest of potential Italian and foreign investors.

We are talking about of an area of 150,000 sqm. It is located in a strategic place, well linked with underground network (M1 and M5 lines) and highways (A4, A7, A8). From 2012 to today, we read in the documents, the area is abandoned, "but it was monitored 24 hours a day, without interruption". The land, "it is not subject to special restrictions and it is regulated only by the PGT (territorial general plan) approved in May 2012".

We don't know the future of the area at moment, but the City of Milan is pushing for the creation of a new village for the two Milanese football teams (AC Milan and FC Inter). The area could become a new pole for entertainment, shopping, services and green spaces, increasing the value of the nearest San Siro stadium.

Italy’s Renzi looks to Milan as Rome loses lustre



On a recent visit to Milan — his third in just a few weeks — Matteo Renzi courted Giorgio Armani, Donatella Versace and other leading fashionistas at a lunch in one of the chic converted warehouses that have sprung up around the city.

Later, in a speech at the Leonardo da Vinci Museum of Science and Technology to launch a national industrial strategy, the reformist prime minister raised a subject traditionally off limits for Italy’s political leaders: the merits of Milan, the country’s second city, versus Rome.

Calling Milan “the capital of the economy, culture and voluntary sector”, he hailed the northern city — the centre of Italian business and home to some of its biggest names in fashion, finance and manufacturing — as “a great point of reference for Italy”.

In another stopover, he joined ally Giuseppe Sala, the city’s new centre-left mayor, to launch a €2.5bn “Pact for Milan” to improve urban infrastructure and revitalise the deprived outer suburbs.

Just as Rome, the historic capital, is the platform for the ambitions of the populist Five Star Movement, the biggest political rival to Mr Renzi’s Democratic party, Milan has become central to the 41-year-old prime minister’s efforts as he prepares for a crucial referendum on constitutional reform this autumn.

For an Italian leader to focus on Milan in this way is unprecedented, says Giuliano Da Empoli, a writer and president of the Volta think-tank, explaining how Mr Renzi is “fascinated” by the city as a “model” for the country’s future.

“Renzi has perfectly identified Milan as his stage,” adds Manfredi Catella, a well-known developer in the city. “He’s very aware that if you do it right in Milan it will be amplified and lots of investors will take note.”

Sometimes derided as Italy’s ugly, industrial sister, Milan was given a welcome makeover to host the Expo 2015 event. This year it overtook Florence to become the country’s third most visited city.

Mr Armani, known as King Giorgio in his home city, says: “Milan is undoubtedly experiencing a great revival that renders it the cultural, industrial and design capital of Italy, constantly promoting new concepts.”

...

International groups Samsung, Google and Microsoft have head offices in Milan, while Siemens plans to spend €40m on its new base in the city. Simmons & Simmons, the law firm, last year shifted its Italian headquarters from Rome to Milan, while the easyJet airline has cut services from the capital to focus on Milan’s Malpensa airport.

The residence is equipped with common spaces and services like clubhouse, gym/fitness area, children's playroom, laundry room. Also there are a 150 sqm hall and a monumental staircase with an attractive design, and an inner garden.

The City of Milan decided to invest in a millionaire program dedicated to "green schools". According to the plans, three new public schools will be built in the first phase.

Scalo Milano - Opening October 27th - 3:00 P.M.


The new metropolitan “city style” district.

There is a a new district in Milan, one devoted to shopping and the complete shopping experience, a concrete outgrowth of the metropolis that dictates style to the world. A few stops from downtown, Scalo Milano is the new Porta of Milan, accessible to everyone. Built with an eye on the third millennium, on the site of one of the last great former industrial complexes, Scalo Milano is a place of excellence, combining design, fashion, fine food… and a touch of art.

It is a new dimension in which shopping, innovation, esthetics and culture merge, a beating heart whose visitors will gain experience, enriching their lives.

Milan | Zone 4


area: 42,000 sqm

Thanks to its high degree of operating flexibility and maximum customisation potential, Connecto offers a unique opportunity for all those companies aiming to assert their own identity and image; a complete range of services, a commercial mix designed to meet every possible requirement. Communal spaces have been designed on the ground floors alongside the lobby areas and in the mezzanines of all the buildings.


The project sets out to reach an overall Class A energy rating, as well as contemplating the idea of obtaining an international standard sustainability rating (LEED, BREAM and others). Protection against dynamic solar radiation by means of automatic outside blinds on the windows of the south-facing facades. Protection against static solar radiation by means of sunscreens on the windows of the south-west facing facades. Multipurpose cooling condenser units powered by both well water and air for simultaneously generating both hot and cold water. An acoustic study was carried out so that the complex could be designed in accordance with urban standards for reducing outside noise levels.


Connecto is composed of four buildings with an open-space design creating a large, lively and active internal courtyard.

The commercial facilities are located over by the public square, while the offices are on the west side of the area. The double-height ground floor accommodates the mezzanine level and communal facilities supporting the offices, which extend over all the other floors.

Updates Apple Piazza del Liberty
see other info > link


The Apple Store will open at Piazza del Liberty and the entrance should be facilitated by a wide flight of steps, so large that will occupy almost the entire width of the square. The steps will lead visitors up to 8 metres below ground level. It will be impossible for passersby not to notice the shop and not be attracted to get off. The scenic effect will be made even more important with the installation of a block crystal tall 7 meters and surrounded by a sort of waterfalls.


Even the passers-by Corso Vittorio Emanuele, starting from the Piazza Duomo will be able to see the waterfalls and become curious. Reaching the below ground, visitors can look up and watch the water fall from the top. The store will host events related to the world of cinema (and not only) in memory of the historic Apollo Cinema: the glass walls could be used as large-scale screens to entertain the people.

The structure was designed by archistar Norman Foster and, to a limited extent, will have the same importance of the crystal cube of New York City. The most recent meeting was held yesterday, and Apple has finally got the go-ahead for the construction of this new store, the first in Milan's historic centre.

DOSSIER: Welcome to Milan, Italy's biggest startup hub

Just this year Financial Times declared Milan Italy’s biggest startup hub. We digged a little deeper to give you advice on all info you need to start your business in Milan. Enjoy!

The geography of Italy’s startup scene differs from most countries. While startups have bunched around big cities from San Francisco to London, in Italy it is more spread out. In a reflection of the country’s postwar manufacturing clusters, startups gathered in all the main cities. Turin, Bologna, Naples and Rome all are startup hubs: however, Milan is the largest.


The city has become a destination for startups partly because of the impetus and increase in vitality that followed the city’s hosting last year of the World’s Fair, Expo 2015.

According to Financial Times, in fact, the university prestige, the availability of capital, the excellence of the food industry and high fashion, the cosmopolitan momentum resulting from the Expo 2015, as well as a number of pieces of legislation make Milan the best place to launch a startup in Italy.

Advantages of founding a company in Milan
* Milan has three main train stations and three airports: one in the city, Linate Airport and two outside the city: the intercontinental airport of Malpensa and the Orio al Serio airport mainly for low-cost flights. This means that you can be anywhere in Europe in 2 to 4 hours.
* Lively scene of events ranging from pitch & drink, technology, entrepreneurship, maker movement and design. If you are a good planner you can do networking 24h a day.
* Many universities in Milan like Bocconi, IULM, Politecnico or Cattolica are raising their interest in startups. Might be a good opportunity to connect with researchers, talents, or even getting office space.
* Plenty of places to get seed funding and take your first steps.
* Even the public sector, represented by regional activities of Lazio, is willing to get involved in the startup world: both as facilitator and as investor. Mind the not-that-fast workflows, but there is a lot of money at your disposal through this channel.
* A lot of big corporations have offices in Milan: Microsoft, IBM, Google, Deloitte, Adecco, Gartner and more. This makes Milano a great place to meet your potential clients and not just investors or fellow startuppers.

As you can see there are many pro’s and con’s; deciding to immerse yourself in the Italian culture is both demanding and rewarding. Knowledge of the Italian language can help a lot especially if you have to deal with local customers.
