Arese Shopping City, Milan
Presented by Design International
Arese Shopping City, currently under development in Milan, will become the largest shopping centre built in one single phase in Italy, with 92,000 sq m of GLA and boasting over 200 shops, cafés, restaurants, outdoor as well as indoor sport, cultural and health activities. The project, which is on schedule for its grand opening in April 2016, is designed by a consortium of architects including Michele de Lucchi, Arnaldo Zappa and Davide Padoa of Design International.
Arese Shopping City will be built around a permeable street with indoor buildings, indoor and outdoor squares, porticos, gates and gardens designed to attract visitors from one of the most affluent and wealthiest populations across North Milan, the Lakes and Switzerland.
Along with real trees and a roof supported by one of the largest glulam structures in Europe, Arese Shopping City will also be the most sustainable large scale shopping centre ever designed in Italy, which will be certified LEED Gold.
