Lifestyle in Milan

 

Capital of fashion and finance of Italy, Milan is the place where business shines. The city’s rich history and classical architecture are a counterpoint to the modern pace of life and the rising towers designed by 21st-century starchitects. It is also one of the most multicultural and diverse cities in Italy, with banking, industrial and design sectors that draw employees from around the world.

Milan has a lot of amazing monuments and art galleries.
The city’s very own symbol, the Duomo cathedral. The church, dedicated to St Mary of the Nativity, is representative of the Italian Gothic style and took almost six centuries to be completed.

There is a increable fresh, cutting-edge view of Porta Nuova, Milan’s skyscraper district. This area includes the Bosco Verticale tower, awarded by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat as “Best Architecture in the World” in 2015.

Milan has established a long history within the fields of fashion, textiles and design in general. Throughout the late 19th century, Milan, being the capital of Lombardy, was a major production centre, benefitting from its status as one of the country's salient economic and industrial powerhouses.

Porta Nuova represents a way of living in harmony with an international lifestyle, but with a strong link to the Milanese identity and tradition.

 

A neighborhood composed of varied residential buildings, such as urban villas, courtyard buildings, townhomes, high rise buildings, such as the Bosco Verticale towers and the residential skyscrapers in Porta Nuova Varesine that overlook the park.

 

LIVING MILAN,

IN PORTA NUOVA


The icons of the Milan of the future are found in Porta Nuova district, from Bosco Verticale to the Solaria tower. Here the city’s urban planning and cultural transformation is tangible, showing how the city has given top priority to environmental sustainability, human wellness and the optimization of the territory. Porta Nuova is renowned as one of the most innovative urban development models in Italy and Europe, awarded as Best Urban Regeneration Project at MIPIM Awards 2018.

SUSTAINABILITY AND INNOVATION IN HEART OF MILAN


Porta Nuova district represents the new face of an ever greener and more sustainable Milan. With its 27 buildings certified LEED Gold, Silver and Platinum and 2 WELL pre-certifications, Porta Nuova offers a real estate portfolio with state-of-the-art plant technologies that allow, in offices as in residences, to significantly reduce energy consumption. The use of Cradle to Cradle certified materials minimizes the ecological impact and improves the environmental performance of the buildings, for a 360-degree sustainable approach, which places people's well-being at the core. Located in the public transport most connected area of the city, Porta Nuova is also an example of integration of sustainable mobility, thanks to more than 5 km of cycle paths and a pedestrian area of 160,000 m2 that includes the Biblioteca degli Alberi park, the new green lung of Milan.

The Residenze Porta Nuova with seven individually designed residential buildings, Porta Nuova offers a broad range of homes and styles creating something for everyone.

DEGLI ALBERI (BAM)
A JEWEL IN THE CROWN OF PORTA NUOVA

 

Translated literally as the ‘library of trees’, BAM is the third largest green space in Milan, spanning the equivalent of more than 12 full-size football pitches. One of the latest projects from the Dutch Inside Outside|Petra Blaisse studio, it is creatively designed as a place for all, featuring over 500 trees in 22 ‘circular forests’, vegetable gardens, play and picnic areas, a picturesque flowered lawn and some 135,000 plants.

 

BAM is at the heart of the new Porta Nuova district, creating a living, breathing green urban ‘playground’ that connects the four corners of the city’s landmark business, leisure, shopping and residential hub.

Bosco Verticale

An iconic landmark on the Milanese skyline and one of the most renowned symbols of green urban development in the world.

  • The buildings represent a new urban reforestation model, featuring over 15,000 plants and 90 different species of trees, shrubs and floral vegetation: the equivalent of a 3-hectar forest
     

  • A key feature of the Porta Nuova landscape, and the ‘green’ city skyline, the changing seasons transform its green architectural composition

  • Designed by Stefano Boeri Architetti
     

  • Achieved LEED Gold certification

 
 

The largest integrated regeneration project in Europe, receiving multiple international accolades including Best Urban Regeneration Project at MIPIM 2018

• 400 new homes designed by a collective of the world’s leading architects including Stefano Boeri Architetti (Italy), Arquitectonica (Miami), and Lucien Lagrange Architects (Chicago)  

 

• There is 200,000sqm of traditionally-inspired contemporary open outdoor spaces, designed for living, including the award-winning Piazza Gae Aulenti and BAM
