San Siro District in Milan to Undergo Urban Re-generation and Syre Residential Complex Construction

3 min read

The Municipality of Milan and Axa Im Alts have signed an urban planning agreement, marking a significant milestone in the re-development of the San Siro district. Studio Marco Piva’s masterplan for Via dei Rospigliosi and the Syre Residential Complex will bring back vitality to this area of the city through a combination of landscaping and architectural interventions.

The triangular-shaped project area, known as the San Siro zone, encompasses two iconic sports venues: the football stadium and the horse racecourse. The masterplan addresses the historical significance of the district, which was once a flourishing “garden city” with abundant green areas and sports facilities.

The project entails the construction of three residential complexes, including two for free building and one for social housing, covering a total area of approximately 22,500 square meters. The redevelopment is expected to be completed in time for the Milan – Cortina 2026 Winter Olympic Games, with real estate marketing already underway, managed by AbitareCo.

Architectural designs for the Syre Residential Complex focus on creating an orderly landscape that seamlessly integrates with the surroundings. The free housing units, comprising 123 flats, offer a range of living spaces characterized by fluidity and harmony. Extensive balconies, terraces, and loggias establish a strong connection between the indoors and outdoors.

The predominant residential building along Via dei Rospigliosi, featuring eight floors, will be set back and protected by a row of new generation trees. This architectural element, along with a tower rising to 22 floors, will define the complex and create an iconic landmark within the district.

Landscaping plays a vital role in the project, with a large park serving as its heart. Preservation of valuable tree formations and the addition of new trees, alongside shrubs and hedges, contribute to the creation of a green oasis. The project aims to redefine the concept of “home” as a chosen place for a “new sociality” within the urban environment.

The project’s commitment to sustainability is evident through its energy-efficient design and utilization of renewable energy sources. The integration of new essences in the green areas, along with the creation of underground parking and photovoltaic roofing, contributes to a more environmentally friendly and livable city.

As the San Siro district prepares for its re-generation, a new chapter in urban life awaits. Share your thoughts and insights on this transformative project by leaving a comment below. Join the discussion and envision the future of this iconic Milanese district.
