Milano 3 City
‘Milano 3’ was planned and constructed by the architectural firm Edilnord Progetti Spa, led by Giancarlo Ragazzi, using the same principles of ‘Milano 2’ which was projected and realized by the same group of architects nearly 10 years before.
‘Milano 3’ is located in Basiglio, 13 km away from the city-centre of Milan on the south-west side.
It hosts 10.500 people, 3.300 housing units and includes a Business Centre for 4.000 people. Furthermore ‘Milano 3’ has nursery schools, an elementary school, a secondary school and several playgrounds. A Sporting Club with more than 20 tennis courts, an indoor swimming pool, an outdoor swimming pool, gyms, a physiotherapy centre and a public soccer field. There is also a shopping mall with over 40 stores including a supermarket, boutiques, banks, hotel and public services and facilities. The town centre includes a city hall, an auditorium, a civic centre and a library. Like ‘Milano 2’ also ‘Milano 3’ has a road system with footpaths and bicycle lanes being separate from the streets.
The business park 'Milano 3 City' is located next to 'Milano 3' providing an easy access to all facilities and services of the town (hotel, residence, mall, banks, restaurants, sport facilities).
The complex is also remarkable for its dimensions: 90.000 m² for offices for in total 4.000 people on a site area of 15 hectares. The layout is developed with a big square for pedestrians, surrounded by grass, trees, pounds and benches connecting all office buildings (4 or 5 stories high). In the centre of the square is placed a building with the restaurant and common services for the employees.
The underground car park with more than 2.400 spaces was designed to minimize the visual impact of the cars and to emphasize the relationship with the surrounding nature.
