The project Lambrate Streaming won the the call for the Lambrate neighborhood (at the city's north-east) of Reinventing Cities, launched by the Municipality of Milan and the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, to foster sustainable urban regeneration projects.
Presented by a multidisciplinary team, the €7-million-project entails the redevelopment of Lambrate's railway yard through a 41,000-square-meter public park with orchards, vegetable gardens, and 900 trees.
The new settlement will also work as a link to three nearby piazzas and will host an art installation, engraved with lines of Lombard poets on train travel. The new area, to be completed by 2026, will be equipped with recreational areas, children playgrounds, sports fields, and dog areas.
“Milano is undergoing profound transformation, for a more sustainable and people-friendly future,” says Anna Scavuzzo, Deputy Mayor of Milan. “Reinventing Cities is one of the most interesting experiences not only in our city, but at the international level and I believe that, especially today, it is an important sign of recovery and rebirth for all of us.”
