Area for mixed-use development – tertiary industry, retail, hotel accommodation and services – situated in the centre of Turin in the Porta Susa area, close to the high-speed railway and inter-modal hub. The scheme is one of the most important redevelopment schemes in the local area and will become one of the most attractive cultural and retail clusters in the city.
The development area is located within the boundary of the “Torino Porta Susa” high-speed railway station in the centre of Turin and will be divided into two separate lots: construction of a 38-storey 160 m tower opposite the Intesa Sanpaolo skyscraper (which has received a LEED Platinum certification) and the annexation of the historic station building, bound by the Ministry of Cultural Heritage, in new construction connected with the surrrounding buildings. The new building will have a height of 21 m. The intended use is mainly tertiary and hotel accommodation, with some space allocated to commercial premises and services, all located in a strategic urban area. Its status as an inter-modal transport hub and a cluster for tertiary industry, retail, tertiary and cultural services makes it one of the most attractive sites in the city.
The property is situated in the central part of the City of Turin (896,773 inhabitants), capital of the Province of Turin and regional capital of Regione Piemonte. Turin is Italy’s 4th largest city by population. The development is part of the broader regeneration project for “Torino Porta Susa” station, which has already seen the completion of the high-speed railway hub. The station is home to two metro stops and receives regional and metropolitan railway lines, connecting Turin to the other main cities in the region, with over 30,000 passenger every day. The area for redevelopment runs along Corso Bolzano and Corso Inghilterra in the bustling and strategic heart of the city and in the vicinity of Palazzo di Giustizia, the headquarters of Intesa Sanpaolo, Polytechnic University of Turin and the Officine Grandi Riparazioni museum cluster. In addition to the railway station, the area also has two metro stops and is the terminus for numerous urban transport lines and regional coaches. Easy access for road vehicles via several arteries makes this an extremely attractive location.
