In Arexpo, north-west Milan, the first smart Urban district of Milan comes to life. The extraordinary urban redevelopment project involves a unique mix of residences, green, technologies, business, trade and facilities. Here, a high potential ecosystem brings together the prime examples from each field and sector: MIND Milan Innovation District, the excellence in research of Human Technopole, the new headquarters of Galeazzi Hospital, the campus of Statale University, the residential towers Milan Uptown, and a new concept of mall that celebrates sustainability – Merlata Bloom Milano
The new city is enclosed in the Cascina Merlata Park, one of the largest green areas of Milan extending over 30 hectares in the city. A green lung, completely integrated within the project of urban regeneration. In the area, crossed by a watercourse from north to south, there are over 10 km of cycle and pedestrian paths, three play areas and as many dedicated to our four-legged friends. In addition, kindergartens, primary and middle schools contribute to making the new urban district a paradigm and meeting point for the Milanese community and the occasional passers-by.
The new urban district of Milan is part of a broader concept of smart city, interconnected, advanced and inclusive. Excellent transport solutions connect it to the city centre: 20’ thanks to the two metro stations, 30’ to the main airports, and just 45’ to Turin thanks to the railway link, gathering over 3 million people. Significant figures for an unprecedented project involving new services, environments and functions, designed with great detail to make Cascina Merlata the most innovative mixed use area of Milan, a new reality developed to meet the needs of a diverse public of residents, students, and workers.
