DISUSED RAILWAY YARDS MILAN
Seven disused railway yards, for a total surface area of 1,000,000 sqm, located just around the city center of Milan, have been transformed from railways destinations to urban destinations: residential districts, retail spaces, office spaces, housing, green areas. The seven yards are different for dimensions (from 400,000 sqm of Farini to 20,000 sqm of Rogoredo), but they all distinguish for train and subway accessibility. Infact their accessibility is easy for the proximity of railway stations and subways station. They also can contribute to the connection of parts of the city that have been separated by the railway. These seven underused railway yards are a part of a strategic regeneration plan, regulated by an Agreement among the City of Milan, Regione Lombardia and Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane – the National Railway Company, owner of the property areas. This concerns the reallocation of economic revenues from the development operation to improve the railway service in the Milan hub and the creation of a “Circle-Line”.
