Mercato Gorla


The Reinventing Cities competition is a call for urban projects to drive carbon-neutral and resilient urban regeneration across the globe and to implement the most innovative ideas to transform underutilized sites into beacons of sustainability and resiliency. Through this competition, C40 and the participating cities invite architects, developers, environmentalists, neighbourhood groups, innovators and artists to build creative teams and to compete for the opportunity to transform these sites. They will also have to demonstrate how innovative climate solutions can be achieved in combination with noteworthy architecture and local community benefits. Milan has singled out five abandoned sites (four are municipal properties and one is a property of Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane SpA (FS) and FS Sistemi Urbani SRL (FSSU)) to be sold and increased in value through urban and environmental regeneration projects: the Gorla market, the de Montel stables, parts of via Serio and via Doria and the disused Greco railway yard.

Total area: 84,926 sqm
Doria: 610 sqm
Mercato Gorla: 970 sqm
Scalo Greco Breda: 61,189 sqm
Scuderie de Montel: 16,275 sqm
