Doria is a 610 sqm empty plot currently used as car park. The site is located on one of the most dense and vibrant neighborhood of Milan and is perfectly connected to public transportation. The city expects for the development of this site a new construction and a new programme, including high quality amenities and pacification of the adjacent public space.

Doria is a small vacant lot of 610 mq and currently used as a parking lot, located just 3 km from Duomo at the north- eastern side of the city centre, in one of the most accessible area of Milan – and probably Italy.

The site has an incredibly strategic position. It is very well connected to all transport modes, close to Centrale railway station hub and 300 metres from the MM1 and MM2 underground line station Loreto. From the Doria site it takes no more than 10 minutes to get to Duomo or Porta Nuova, and to catch a train to go anywhere in Italy. 

The neighborhood is among the busiest and densest in the city, next to Corso Buenos Aires, one of Milan’s most important commercial streets. It is characterised by a young population, and a high rate of residential buildings (71%), with bars, restaurants, shops, and public and private services at the ground floor. 

The site today appears as a small urban void along viale Doria, the axis connecting Centrale Station to Loreto square. The site has the potential to become an attractive destination, particularly concerning public space. 

As the City of Milan aims to provide better facilities for walking and cycling, as well as new green infrastructures in the area, the call for projects provides an opportunity to develop proposals able to refurbish the public space.
