Milan, lights off at Porta Nuova

 

Penthouses and villas “out of business.” The luxury homes and six maxi-colored villas tabaccoalle shoulders of skyscrapers have not yet been marketed by choice

Lights out the windows at night, work in progress by day in bare spaces, uninhabited, by choice still spectators of the coming and going of workers, real estate professionals and interior designers. It is the least known face of the symbol of the Milanese Renaissance district: Porta Nuova, investments for more than two billion, 30 sustainable buildings for many architects from around the world. But beyond the awards of the designers, the accolades of citizenship and even the collective imagination, just lift your head at night toward the skyscrapers of the Vertical Forest Island, the towers Solaria, Solea and Air in the raised square Alvar Alto to find that those storey high object of desire are still uninhabited. Or stroll along the way Joe Colombo, on the areas of the former Varesine behind the skyscrapers filled offices, between Via Melchiorre Gioia and the hotel Principe di Savoia, to sense that the six maxi-tobacco-colored villas are still under works and thoughts . Not unsold, mind you: never put on mercato.Milano, lights off at Porta Nuova
