What will the new part of Milan look like?
Once the works are completed, the Santa Giulia area – 1.2 million square meters – will consist of buildings of more than 658,000 square meters (currently about a third of those completed). Mainly residential buildings (60% according to Palazzo Marino figures). Not only that, but there will be a large public park of more than 360 thousand square meters and a new Esselunga Park.

The size of the building blocks and the building on the edges with internal courtyards for private use allow for extensive interchangeability and flexibility between the typical functions of the city – residence, tertiary, commerce, hospitality, services to individuals, public functions and the public interest. This urban structure includes the network of services provided, those comparable to the general service category and also the set of functions that enrich the social and economic diversity of the city.
