Torre Milano keeps growing and is part of a skyline that will continue to renew itself in the coming years.
By 2030, over 13 billion Euro will be invested in the development of the real estate in Milan, making it one of the most vital destinations on the world scene. Many projects have already stated and we can see them concluded very soon. Others will be built over the next three years. For many of them the common denominator is unique: the verticality. And it is not only a factor of prestige, but it is also a very practical solution to the consumption of land which has become a serious problem in modern metropolises. The skyscrapers, in fact, give back space to the green to the city suffocated by the horizontal concrete flows of the buildings. Furthermore, new technological and architectural solutions make the new buildings eco-sustainable and low energy consumption. And despite the challenges given by the pandemic, real estate continues to bet on these giants that reshape the profile of cities in a unique way. The complexity and iconicity design of the towers attracts the greatest architectural and engineering firms.
Here following the protagonists of the urban future.
Torre Milano, designed by Studio Beretta Associati, is inspired by the skyscrapers that symbolize the city's economic boom and the typical stylistic features of rationalist architecture, with pure geometric shapes and volumes that create the illusion of merging the inside and the outside.
Bjarke Ingels Group designed the so-called 'fourth tower', The Portico, already renamed by the Milanese 'lo sdraiato - the lying down' due to its shape, which will complete the CityLife panorama.
Via Melchiorre Gioia will host three new skyscrapers. 'La Scheggia', 120 meters high and the future headquarters of Ubi Banca, designed by Gregg Jones by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architect, which will be the first building in Italy to comply with the stringent parameters of the Nearly Zero Energy Consumption Building. Then the new Unipol headquarters, designed by Mario Cucinella, already renamed the 'Vertical Nest' due to its particular structure which will house a panoramic garden and a sky restaurant; "Torre Gioia 20" with its 104 meters, is designed by Antonio Citterio and Patricia Viel and will further enrich the skyline of Porta Nuova. Also designed by Antonio Citterio and Patricia Viel, the Torre Faro, the new A2A Company headquarters, will be a business card for those who arrive from Milan South. With the inauguration scheduled for 2023, it will be characterized by a tubular shape interrupted by hanging gardens 60 meters high.
