The site, “the former agricultural consortium”, is located along Treviso’s bypass, just outside the 16th century walls, in a mixed commercial, residential and business district. Made up of different buildings, currently in disuse, the area is the result of multiple construction projects which took place over different periods. The surrounding area, currently with productive/commercial use, is part of an already approved integrated programme of urban and environmental redevelopment that permits the building of 37.669 m3, for residential, commercial and business use.
The property has an irregular layout and is located between Via Bixio and Via Alzaia, along the Sile River and the city walls. It consists of multiple constructions built at different times, some of which date back to the first half of the 19th century, with varied purposes: warehouses, storage spaces, offices, workshops and three residential areas, all of which were abandoned at the end of the 70’s. In a neglected state, the majority of the warehouses don’t have any form of roofing and all the entrances to the buildings have been bricked up, making access difficult. The complex is in an area of 10.615 m² and is included in the “Integrated Programme of Urban and Environmental Redevelopment” (PIRUEA), named “Bixio Area – former agricultural consortium”, subject to a programme initiated by the municipality of Treviso, the Veneto region and by the Authority for Architectural Heritage and Landscape.
The site is located near the Treviso Walls (pop. 83.772), head town of the Venetian Province with the same name (pop. 892.353), a tourist destination for its food and wine, thanks to DOC and DOCG wines, such as Prosecco, and other typical products of the area. The property borders with Via Alzaia to the south, Viale Nino Bixio to the west, the railway line to the east and private buildings to the north. The city offers noteworthy historical and artistic attractions, like Piazza dei Signori with its Palazzo dei Trecento and the elegant Loggia dei Cavalieri, and the cathedral which hosts the Cappella Malchiostro, the Pordenone frescoes and the altarpiece with the Annunciazione del Tiziano. It has excellent accessibility: the SS13 and SS53 pass through the city and there’s the A27 Mestre-Vittorio Veneto-Pian di Vedoia motorway, accessible via the “Treviso Nord” and “Treviso Sud” toll-booths, respectively 8 and 7 km away. The railway station, an importance hub, is on the Venice-Udine line and is where the Treviso-Vincenza and the Treviso-Montebelluna lines start, the closest airport is the Treviso/San Giuseppe airport, 5 km from the city centre, and the Venice/Tessera, about 26 km away.
