DOSSIER. New "Science, Knowledge and Innovation Park": 'phase 1' closed.

The 'phase 1' of the €2.5 billion international tender to convert the former Expo 2015 site closed today. The goal is develop a global scientific/hi-tech park (including a Human Technopole and a university campus of global excellence) and tax-free zone to attract multinationals, corporations, startups and more. The masterplan design contract and 99-year site concessions up for grabs.

These are the four selected bidders:

The final selection with the contract's assignment at the best bidder is expected later this year.
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.

Updates Palazzo Broggi
design > Asti Architetti (restoration, refurbishment)

"My dream is coming true. See you soon" - Howard Schultz.
With this words, the founder of American chain announced the opening of Europe's largest Starbucks store in late 2018.

Palazzo Broggi will also host Waldorf Astoria luxury hotel: Hilton won the tender against Marriott, International and Shangri-La.

Restoration work



The Starbucks store will have 2,500 sqm (26,909 sqft) of space and will be housed in a restored historic building in the city center. It will employ 350 people. The Milanese store is based on new concept "Reserve Roastery & Tasting Room", it will have Made in Italy furniture and will provide quality food in collaboration with locals.

Thirty-four years ago, Schultz took his first business trip to Milan and Verona, a journey that changed his life forever. Inspired by the craftsmanship of the Milanese barista, the spirit of the Italian people, their passion for community, their friendliness and taste for quality, Schultz's vision for Starbucks began to take root.

DOSSIER: Milan considers to bid for 2028 Olympics.


Milan Mayor Giuseppe Sala and Lombardy Governor Roberto Maroni have renovated the idea to bid for the 2028 Olympics as Budapest withdraw from the Games, leaving Paris and Los Angeles as the only bidders for the 2024 Olympics.

In recent months, Rome city officials decided to withdraw the bid for the 2024 Games, but Milan would be ready to take up the baton for the joy of the Italian National Olympic Committee (CONI). Mayor Sala, who was elected in June 2016, is determinated to improve the city's sporting facilities. "If Los Angeles wins, CONI could think about putting Milan forward as a candidate for 2028" the mayor said.

Local officials said that they support the American city and that institutions are ready to start to draw up a plan in late 2017 if LA gets the 2024 Summer Games. Italy's financial capital would like to organize the 2028 Games with public and private investments.

Milan hosted the world Expo in 2015, but for the Olympics Italy's fashion capital may need help of Genoa or Venice to host sailing.

If Paris win 2024, there will not be any likely bid for 2028 Games. I say this according to recent news.

It's a good thing if Paris wins the Games. In that case, Milan could make a bid for 2032 edition, this because officials said that probably IOC will bring the 2028 Games in America or Oceania. But who knows? We'll see.
