“EXTM” – Ex Trotto Milan
An innovative, inclusive and sustainable regeneration project for the Ex Trotto area in Milan, near San Siro stadium.
Hines, the global real estate investment, development and property manager, after the signature of the Town Planning (Piano Attuativo) by the Municipality of Milan, presented in its role as investor and development manager, the masterplan for the “EXTM” – Ex Trotto Milano urban regeneration project, developed by the international architecture firm Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (KPF).
The project aims to transform the area – abandoned in 2012 – into a new and mainly pedestrian urban district, designed to host over 3,000 people and create social value with a mix of intergenerational functions and residential solutions, services of public interest and new green areas open to the community.
From the point of view of the mobility strategy, the Ex Trotto Milano aims to become an integral part of the district by reconnecting the area to the road network, the public transport and San Siro neighbourhood. The masterplan focuses on sustainable and active mobility through a new internal network of pedestrian and cycle paths inside the 50,000 sqm park.
The founding idea of the EXTM project is a new approach to urban regeneration, focusing on the historical memory of the place, the heritage – former stables and barns – will be preserved and transformed into the future identity of the new urban district. The project will be developed following the most advanced international sustainability criteria, guaranteeing high-quality facilities and accessible neighbourhood services.
MIC-HUB worked as mobility expert with Hines, Prelios, Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, LAND, Freyrie Flores Architettura, Starching and Consorzio Leonardo Servizi e Lavori to develop a community-oriented project and a new, vibrant urban destination.
