Procedure
Subjected to Strategic Environmental Assesment

The project starts from a partial recovery intervention that allows its transformation into a building area. Expected functions: services, commerce, residence, receptive public spaces for the community and building for the municipality (maybe library). The masterplan proposal foresees the realization of a new system of access to the area and the reconstruction and connection of the context: hospital, expo, railway stations of Rho and Baranzate. 

The two-stage project is a program agreement that will lead to the variant of the PGT (Territorial Governance Plan) in Milan and Baranzate and the proposal of an integrated over-municipal intervention program.  A project brought forward in collaboration with municipal administrations and agencies to better understand and plan this site, strategically located along the motorway to Varese, with great potential to solve the yet pending problematics.
