Project description

Corso Como Place, recovering the 22,000 m2 block between via de Tocquevillle and via Bonnet, represents the new step of the urban redevelopment of Porta Nuova. The idea allows to combine together the public space between Fondazione Feltrinelli with Eataly, Corso Como and Gae Aulenti Square through pedestrian walkways and cycle paths.

A new 21-storey office tower 70 metres high was born from the demolition of the 68 m high Pirellino tower (former Unilever seat) designed in 1962 by Francesco Diomede, Giuseppe and Carlo Rusconi Clerici. It will be sided by the 4,000 m2 of Podium for commercial and tertiary use.

Following The Edge in Amsterdam, the Bonnet tower aims to become the first office complex in Milan to obtain the Well Building Certificate. This document assesses the way in which design, services and behaviors inside buildings positively affect people’s health according to psychophysical wellbeing, comfort, movement and light quality, supply, water and air. According to the international standard Nearly Zero Energy Building, the building will be supplied with 65% of renewable energy sources. The CO2 emissions will be reduced and high energy performances will be ensured. The design decisions, the organization, the technological and material choice will allow to obtain the LEED Gold certification.
