The new residential neighborhood in Milan devoted to social housing

Featured by rent-controlled housing, the former Trotto area, next to Meazza Stadium in San Siro neighborhood, promises to respect the right to housing.

In Milan, in the former Trotto area, abandoned for years and next to the stadium of San Siro, there will be a new residential complex, hosting about 700 residential units at average social rent of 120 euros per square meter per year. About 600 euros per month for a two-room apartment, to be clear.

The masterplan – signed by the architectural firm Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (KPF) – provides a system of green spaces, including a central square open to the South on which the new houses will face.

Inside the existing buildings will be included services for the neighborhood, including a kindergarten for 60 children in via Aldobrandini and an after-school center dedicated to high school students.

There will also be a sports hub with a multifunctional gym and padel courts, retail spaces, and proximity services. The construction works are expected to start at the beginning of 2024.
