The strip of town called Symbiosis, or in English Symbiosis, starts from the future Olympic village at the Scalo Romana, right behind the Prada Foundation, and reaches the edge of the city, just three blocks from the green meadows of via dell’Assunta, Vaiano Valle and the Vettabbia Park, between the abandoned farmhouses and illegal landfills that separate the Milan that it “shortens” towards the south from the beauties of Chiaravalle. It is the emblematic district of the metropolis that (does not) change after the pandemic and which is transformed into a managerial vocation, with companies that choose to move here, despite the office crisis, due to smart working. The latest announcement concerns Moncler, which will bring its future headquarters to the neighborhood between viale Ortles and via Marco D’Agrate by 2024, in the shadow of the old chimney and cistern that will become ecological water and wind towers. , alongside important or very important names, such as Lvmh and Fastweb, which have already signed lease agreements, or even purchase contracts, such as Snam.
The heart of the district developed by Covivio – controlled by Leonardo Del Vecchio’s Delfin and protagonist with Coima and Prada holding in the redevelopment of the railway yard on which the A2a tower will also stand – is piazza Olivetti, the new pole of the multi-district Milan that separates Nexxt, the building already occupied by Fastweb, by the other six buildings. The next to be inaugurated will be the «building D», which has already been rented out in spite of the fact that the cranes still tower above it, reflecting the strong demand for new generation offices in the city. Completion of the works expected within the year, it will host the Italian company of the luxury giant LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy), that of one of the main pharmaceutical groups (the German Boehringer Ingelheim), plus some companies of the Mars group (American multinational in the sector snacks and more), the Orsero fruit and vegetable group and another Italian company. Next to it will be the volumes (still to be designed) of the buildings now summarized in the wording “C + E”, right under the already purchased tower of the Snam, whose construction site is in the start-up phase. Future headquarters of the group (even if the “brain” of the energy network will remain in San Donato), the headquarters will be built and delivered by the beginning of 2024.
Finally, there is the Moncler clothing brand, fresh from the announcement, sixth office building as part of the symbiotic project designed by architects Citterio and Viel. The southernmost part of the lot will center around the chimney in memory of industrial archeology where in the post-war decades the city faded and smoked and the future bioclimatic symbol of the offices of the well-known duvet brand, in dialogue with the facades of the building, also green, and surrounded by a large park.
The last and seventh building are already operational, the only one without a directional vocation, but used for international education, another rapidly growing economic segment, and closely linked to the arrival (and return) of workers and managers from abroad with their families and children whose education was initiated abroad, in different educational contexts. In fact, in the glass building edged in white, there is the ICS campus, the international school of Globeducate group, active in nine countries and three continents. “The latest agreements we have concluded confirm the attractiveness of the city and the district,” explains Covivio’s CEO for Italy, Alexei Dal Pastro “.
Finally, the Vitae project should be mentioned, which is not part of Symbiosis, but one of the winners of the Reinventing cities tender, developed a few meters away, in via Serio by Covivio itself, which went to the news last June due to the collapse of a crane on the adjacent Firc Institute of Oncology molecular.
