Historical building constructed at the beginning of the twentieth century, near the old city centre of Trieste. The listed building, in a bad state of maintenance, would be ideal for redevelopment in a tourist-accommodation structure or prestigious offices. The building is vacant.
The property is located in the old city centre of Trieste, in Via dell’Università on the corner with Via Corti, and consists of a basement floor and four floors above ground, as well as a covered roof terrace, with panoramic views of the port. The total surface is of 1,490 m², 147 m² of which below ground. The facing is in white stone and crossed, on the main floor, by a balcony decorated with fluted columns with Ionic capitals, whilst the larger interior spaces are lavishly decorated with historically-themed wood panelling, marbles, mosaics and frescoes.
The building, located in the old city centre of Trieste (204,590 inhabitants), which is the capital of the province and of the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region, between the city tourist port to the north, the railway station to the west, the army military command to the south and the State Library with the Sartorio Civic Museum to the east. The building overlooks Via dell’Università and Via Corti, respectively south and east, which are both one way streets. The context is of narrow roads and prestigious XIX and XX century buildings, in which the property blends in particularly well. Parking is limited to metered car parks, but there are plenty of private car parks in the areas close to the centre. Trieste is linked to the A-4 motorway (Serenissima) through the 13 motorway Sistiana-Padriciano and is linked to the European routes E70, E61 and E751. The network of highways that link the A4 to Trieste and the border crossing with Slovenia are known as the Trieste Road Network. The city is connected to the railways lines Venezia-Trieste, Udine-Trieste, and the Transalpine railway, with the railway station which is 1.5 km from the property.
