Porta Nuova Varesine is a mixed use masterplan and urban renewal project in central Milan, one of the most significant redevelopments in Italy, comprising high quality residential apartments and office accommodation, retail spaces and a cultural centre.
Located at the intersection of Via della Liberazione and Via Melchiorre Gioia.
Porta Nuova will become Milan’s main intermodal hub with 2 railway stations, 3 Metro lines, 1 underground light railway and numerous road and tram services. A close-knit network of pedestrian areas and cycle paths will allow quick and easy access to the various zones.

The LEED™ Gold for its three ofﬁce buildings is indicative of its sustainable credentials in the promotion of social, economic and environmental value for its users, visitors and the City of Milan. The project will deliver innovative, Class A energy performance buildings to the Italian market. Other sustainable strategies for Varesine include the use of recyclable material, sustainable timber, natural lighting, ﬂoor-to-ceiling glazing to maximize views out, sun-shading and facades that are environmentally responsive. Water efﬁciency measures in residential
buildings can reduce water usage by 30% or more. Potable water usage will be reduced within the buildings through the speciﬁ cation of low-ﬂow ﬁxtures and automatic sensors. The buildings’ energy consumption will be reduced through the employment of high performance servicing strategies, which include building envelope optimization, efﬁcient HVAC system design such as heat recovery and groundwater cooling. The project aims to achieve a 14% reduction in its energy performance in comparison to a code-standard building.
