workers in the building site


The Santa Marta Hall of Residence, developed for the Ca’ Foscari University, is composed of three historic buildings – the “Cube”, the “Parallelepiped” and the South Building – which together will accommodate 650 students. The accommodation structure will be supported by a series of facilities and shared areas with prestigious finishings. The rooms, double and single, will be furnished with every comfort, including a study corner and kitchen. The supply of renewable energy will be guaranteed by a photovoltaic system and by 12 solar thermal panels.


“This hall of residence is an historically important contribution, not only because it doubles the available student accommodation, but also because it regenerates an area of Venice”.

Building Site Manager for the Santa Marta Hall of Residence

The new Santa Marta hall of residence in Venice was inaugurated last December 9th, in the presence of INPS Chairman Pasquale Tridico, Fabrica SGR CEO Giovanni Maria Benucci and CMB Chairman Carlo Zini, as well as the Dean Prof. Michele Bugliesi together with the local authorities. The initiative, with a value of about 30 million euros, was carried out by the “Fondo Erasmo”, a real estate fund dedicated to temporary housing for students, managed by Fabrica Immobiliare SGR and built by CMB in about two years.

Delivery of the Parallelepiped

Work on the Parallelepiped, the renovated historic structure with accommodation for 136 students’ places, is finished in record time on 30 April 2018. On completion, with 650 beds, the structure will double the offer of accommodation for university students in Venice, contributing significantly to fill the current gap that separates supply and demand for housing solutions with a controlled fee.
