'A city within a city' 

Foster and Partners have recently been commissioned to design ‘a city within a city’ in south-east Milan. The massive 1,200,000m² site was left following the closure of the Montedison factory and the Redaelli steel mills. Social life at Milano Giulia will revolve around the 600 metre long pedestrian promenade, lined with shops and services. The project will also contain schools, halls of residences, a church, healthcare services, a congress centre, a sports centre and a proposed 7 star hotel (80,780m² ). It is thought that the ‘city within a city’ will accommodate between 50 and 60 thousand citizens. Accommodation will range from two-room flats to large apartments and lofts. All the accommodation will be equipped with the most up to date and modern technology.
