DOSSIER. 'Fare Milano' Forum: experts met to design the city of the future.


A great audience this morning attended the forum that aims to design the Milan of the future through the redevelopment of disused railway yards around historic core of Milan, which with a total area of ​​over 1.3 million sqm represent an extraordinary opportunity for the city. The workshop was promoted by FS Sistemi Urbani in collaboration with the City of Milan and Lombardy Region.

In this first day, the workshop -opened by Urban Planning Councillor Pierfrancesco Maran, President of FS Sistemi Urbani Franco Papa, Chief Executive of FS Sistemi Urbani Carlo De Vito, President of City Council Lamberto Bertole- was attended by over 800 people (including architects, associations, stakeholders, institutions, etc).


Urban Planning Councillor was enthusiast and underlined that numorous workshops and initiatives will follow in next months. "Milan is betting on its future: here there is the potential for a public discussion that will involve great urbanistic and architectural changes in our city in the decade ahead" said Maran. "We want that best ideas and proposals emerge, and make sure that these urban planning regenerations give a new vitality to the city. In 1990s, Barcelona was the European city involved by great urban planning changes; 2000s were the years of Berlin, Milan will be the star of the next decade" he added.

Good point, I had no considered that.

However, I was thinking more about the trees in Las Ramblas and how they may work in via Dante.

I'd like to plant new trees in other areas rather than in Via Dante: the risk is to hide facades of the palaces and "ruin" the optical cone on Castello Sforzesco. However, we may consider new street furniture.
But at moment, I think that priority is a careful redevelopment of both Piazza Cordusio and Piazza Castello (still waiting for projects).

Agreed.

We are still waiting for projects to arise from the competition which aims to redevelop Piazza Castello.

With regards to Piazza Cordusio, I believe there has been some talk but nothing concrete. The general consensus is that it is a confusing space with cars, trams and people surrounded by banks and offices as opposed to shops. I have attached an article which discusses this and considers a future where Piazza Cordusio is an extension of via Dante in terms of shopping and attraction. Another aspect that I do not like about Piazza Cordusio are the tram lines which hang above the square. The article makes reference to Place de la Comédie in Bordeaux, a square with only people and trams and where the trams do not require these lines therefore making it more appealing.

Not really Piazza Cordusio is changing slowly, with a mix of functions. We already know that a Starbucks store "Reserve Roastery & Tasting Room" (like the ones of Seattle and NYC) will open there, as well as other fashion brands like Uniqlo. Also there is the chance for luxury hotel. (see my previous posts: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4)

I've already seen this article. I agree with you about the fact that Piazza Cordusio must change completely, but I don't think that we will have new tram lines like the ones in Bordeaux. However, we have to wait what new investors decide (see my post)

Urban Corner
Milan | Zone 8


design: Laboratorio Permanente
client: Liuni S.p.A.


In a former industrial district on the outskirts of Milan, at the center of a metropolitan system of connections, the new office building represents an opportunity to rethink the relationship between architecture and city. The place is largely characterised by the presence of introverted buildings, rigidly defined by boundaries and enclosures. The project works with the context using its specific peculiarities which are used as resources rather than weaknesses. The building works as a big and bright lantern that, through its transparency, establishes a relationship of continuity with the external spaces. The central position occupied by the project area represents the great opportunity to rethink a stronger public space able to reconnect the existing discontinuity, becoming a condenser of new social activities.






In a context defined by the diffuse presence of vertical buildings, the choice of a flat volume gives higher visibility to the architecture that due to its horizontality contrasts the background. The horizontal landmark has been conceived as a super-infrastructure that works in harmony with its environmental and social context by offering new liveable spaces for the entire district. A mineral podium intersects the constructed architecture and sneaks into the building, extending the public space inside and approaching the working environments, with a continuous system of collective terraces and gathering places.

DOSSIER: Arexpo in search of investors, archistars for the "Science, Knowledge and Innovation Park"

Arexpo S.p.A. has the task to convert the whole Expo 2015 area into a scientific and technology parc of global excellence. The plan will be presented in London on 11 January 2017.

Guidelines
Arexpo S.p.A., supported by Roland Berger and PriceWaterHouseCooper, are drawing up the GuideLines for the strategic development and enhancing plan of the area. Arexpo is responsable for the delivery of the “Science, Knowledge and Innovation Park” in this area, which is one of the most accessible locations in Southern Europe, based on a contemporary Science and Technology Park format.


Development Plan
Arexpo S.p.A. has launched a restricted tendering, pursuant to art. 61 of Legislative Decree no. 50/2016, in order to award the design, development and management of a project concerning the "Urban Regeneration" of the area in which took place the Universal Exposition “Expo Milano 2015”.

With such tender Arexpo S.p.A. aims to achieve, in Milan, one of the most developed infrastructure and accessible urban areas in southern Europe, called "Park of Science, Knowledge and Innovation", starting from the assumption that the experience of 2015 Universal Exposition shall be a symbolic occasion for an entire integrated and unified redesign of a strategic area.

Starting from an analysis of the context, from the enhancement of the Universal Exposition heritage and from the optimization of co-existence with the phase of the transitory management of the exhibition site, the development project shall be able to set up a unitary scenario of transformation and upgrading of the Area that represents a new urban centrality, in a wider spatial context; the definition of the different uses, integrated in an environment that looks at the future, rich in technology, culture and landscape, shall be able to ensure tangible positive impact on the area and the economic sustainability of the Business Plan of Arexpo S.p.A..

Arexpo S.p.A., in particular, aims to select an economic operator to award a mixed procurement concerning services/concession, divided into two different phases involving:

Stage 1) a procurement of services concerning technical, economic and financial advisory in support of Arexpo S.p.A. in order to concept and elaborate the Masterplan with specific reference to the "Urban Regeneration" of the entire ex-Expo Milano 2015 Area, as well as to design and elaborate the Business Plan of the overall development of the ex-Expo Milano 2015 Area;

Stage 2) a concession for the management of the Area, that include the granting of a surface rights of a period of maximum 50 years, on the ex-Expo Milano 2015 Area of no. 250,000 square meters Gross Floor Area (SLP); following the awarding, Arexpo S.p.A. reserves the right to extend such SLP up to 480,000 square meters.

The tender will be awarded to the most economically advantageous bid, pursuant to Art. 95 of Legislative Decree no. 50/2016.

Official deadlines:
* To submit request for clarification: by 12 AM (Italian time) of February 06, 2017.
* To submit the application: by 12 AM (Italian time) of February 28, 2017.


By 2025, the project will be regarded as one of the greatest examples of successful delivery of a legacy promise after a major public event.

The challenge of this plan is to:
* Develop a high-quality project, characterised by great architecture, engineering and public spaces, which is attractive to international-level operators and investors.
* Preserve attractiveness and liveliness of the site 24 hours a day and throughout the year.
* Generate opportunities for innovation and socio-economic development of local communities.
* Secure widespread consensus and support from local communities and interested groups.
* Commit to environmental sustainability, social responsibility, green buildings and infrastructure, smart information and communication technologies.
* Guarantee operational excellence, good services, low costs, stakeholders care and involvement.


The overall area is located north-west of the city centre of Milan. The site is easily accessible from greater Milan, its primary densely-populated catchment area, from Northern part of Italy and Europe. Over 9 million residents live within 60 minutes drive from the area. The site is located close to the busy Linate and Malpensa Airports, and the Milan Exhibition Centre, which is the largest trade fair facility in Europe.

Milan presented the €2.5bn tender to convert former Expo 2015 site.

Today, a Milanese delegation presented at Italian Embassy in London a €2.5 billion international tender to convert the former Expo 2015 site into a global scientific/hi-tech park and tax-free zone to attract multinationals, corporations and more.

Bidders have time until 6 February to express their interest and until 28 February to submit their application. The masterplan design contract and 50-year site concessions up for grabs. To be admitted, bidders have to satisfy the requirements needed. When in race, bidders will have additional three months for the submission of their proposals. The path should ended by summer 2017, while the final selection with the contract's assignment at the best bidder is expected later this year.

In addition, Italian government already signed an agreement to invest 150 million euro a year of public funds: the goal is to develop a scientific and big data research centre (Human Technopole) led by the Italian Institute of Technology. While the State University of Milan, aims to invest 380 million euro in order to build an university campus of global excellence and attract best students, researchers from around the world. Assolombarda, the largest territorial association of the entire entrepreneurial system of Lombardy region, also aims to create an area dedicated to startups.

Some buildings, areas of Expo 2015

Arexpo, the society for the management of former Expo 2015 site owned by the City of Milan and other institutions, also meet a delegation of London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC), a public society owned by the City of London. LLDC has recently redeveloped the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park (2012 Olympics). During the meeting at Italian Embassy, both societies have tight the relationships with the hope to collaborate in the future.
