Area for development – office, commercial, tourism-accommodation, cultural-leisure – situated around Roma-Tiburtina high-speed railway station. It is one of the most important projects currently underway in Rome. The redevelopment area consists of buildable plots, some of which with constructions needing demolition. The area covers 92 hectares.
The initiative represents an important investment opportunity in the heart of the most important intermodal node of the Capital. The entire urban area of 92 ha around the New Rome Tiburtina High Speed Train Station was the subject of a Memorandum of understanding between the FS Group and Municipality of Rome which provided for the construction of new and important infrastructural works , which have already been completed (the new station, the new ring road, new local roads, parking lots and public spaces), as well as the development of new strategic directional, retail, hotel and cultural functions (for a total of 150,900 sqm of building rights). FS Sistemi Urbani is the process owner for the development of the master plan, the transformation and sale of building lots. On the east side (Pietralata-Tiburtino) a first lot was sold to BNL- BNP Paribas Group for their new national headquarters. A second sold lot will host a new Sapienza University campus. Moreover, the master plan provides new further strategic facilities. On the west side (Nomentano) the C1 hotel lot and the West square urban riqualification is under development.
The area for redevelopment is situated in a semi-central area of the City of Rome (2,872,021 inhabitants), around Roma-Tiburtina high-speed railway station, where a new advanced technology business district is currently under construction. The area is well served by local public transport, with a nearby station on the B metro line, high-speed and high-frequency railway lines transiting the station, a coach station and several bus lines. The scheme involves providing easy access by private transport by boosting the road network and thanks also to the site’s proximity to Via Tiburtina and the Tangenziale Est ring road and the construction of large-scale public car parks. The area surrounding the regeneration zone already features public and private office buildings. La Sapienza University of Rome (115,000 total students and 18,000 freshmen annually) is 1.5 km from the new business district.
