DESCRIPTION OF THE WORK
The “Varesine” section is part of this complex transformation project for a zone adjacent to the historic centre, inserted in the northern part of Milan. Situated between Garibaldi Station and Piazza della Repubblica, the Varesine area involved is approximately 330 m long and 95 m wide. The first lot provided for the development of three buildings for tertiary businesses and relative car parking spaces for an overall area of 43,000 sq.m. The two low buildings (9 floors on a base of 75×20 metres) are characterised by the use of high-resistance concrete and by a cutting-edge technology that makes it possible to limit the size of the pillars. The second lot involved the construction of new buildings for residential use and a commercial area with relative car parking spaces for a surface area of 40,000 sq.m. The residential buildings are divided into two types according to their dimensions: low residential buildings of 4 or 5 floors and much higher residential buildings. In line with Lot 1, Lot 2 also has four underground floors for car parking, storerooms and technical rooms.
