CityLife: Transforming Milan’s Urban Landscape

Posted by Alexander Hartmann on April 25, 2024

CityLife, a groundbreaking urban redevelopment project, has breathed new life into Milan’s cityscape. Situated just a stone’s throw away from the historic city center, this ambitious venture covers an expansive area of 36.6 hectares (90 acres).

The development is being carried out by a company controlled by Generali Group after its winning offer of €523 million for the rights. The project was designed by famous architects such as Zaha Hadid, Arata Isozaki and Daniel Libeskind.

Let’s delve into the essence of CityLife and explore its significance.

City Life – a green modern oasis in downtown Milan

The Genesis

The project emerged from the ashes of the former Fiera Milano, which relocated to the nearby town of Rho. The vast expanse of land left behind presented an opportunity to reimagine urban living, commerce, and culture. CityLife was born – a harmonious blend of residential, commercial, and business spaces.

Its sinuous lines, innovative structures, and fluid forms captivate visitors, inviting them to explore a world where design meets functionality.
