Economic sustainability

In the long term, the development of a district on the scale and of the importance of Milano Santa Giulia must aim to generate well-being and economic growth for investors, but also for the surrounding territory.

The objective is to create a virtuous cycle in which the overall benefits over the long term are broadly greater than the investments made to complete the redevelopment of the area.

Firstly, the project will generate a significant economic impact on the area: value of production generated worth 1,5 billions, added value worth 3,4 billions and 24.000 equivalent jobs created.

Furthermore, the quality of life promoted by the district, its external appeal and the benefits derived from the planning and design choices, will become a leverage for the development and growth of businesses operating in the district.

Finally, the local economy is an important catalyst for the process of building a neighbourhood community, because greater well-being encourages people to lead a more active life and increases the shared use of public spaces. In this context, the local economy has the potential to be a genuine “circulatory system” for urban social life.
