This heritage building is of noteworthy architectural merit and is situated in the centre of Genoa, in the Porto Antico area which is mainly residential, but includes many commercial and tourist-accommodation facilities. Because of its superb location, the property is ideally suited for redevelopment and conversion to private homes.
The property, with access in Via dei Giustiniani 19, was built in the XVI century and subsequently expanded and restructured. The listed building (former Legislative Decree 42/2004), is a fine example of classic Genoa architecture and covers a gross surface area of 1,966 m². The building is in need of consolidation and renovation work. The town general zoning plan classifies the building as historic and located in the old city centre. It is possible to redevelop and convert the property into a residential complex.
The property is located in the old city centre of Genoa (592,507 inhabitants), which is the capital city of the province (862,175 inhabitants) and of the Liguria Region (1,583,263 inhabitants). The building is in the Porto Antico area, close to the city’s main monuments and sites, in a mainly residential neighbourhood with amenable services and hotels and restaurants which are quite popular with tourists. The area has excellent public transport with the metropolitan railwaystop (San Giorgio) only 350 metres from the building. The tourist port and its docks for cruise liners is 1.7 km away. Car access in the small streets of the old city centre is a bit complicated; however, access to the old city centre is simple via a main road that runs close to the property. The E-80 road, which leads to the motorway, is 8 km away, and the Piazza Principe railway station is 2 km from the property.
