Gorla is an underused food market that enjoys an ideal situation along Viale Monza, one of the most important city’s historical road. The 970 sqm plot is very well connected to public transportation and has a high potential. Its redevelopment should include new social activities, with connection to its original function of food market.

Gorla is located on the northeastern side of Milan, along Viale Monza, one of the city’s most important historical axis connecting the city to the surrounding metropolitan area. 

The site is a small plot partially occupied by a dismissed public market building that was built about 60 years ago.

At the core of an historical suburban neighborhood, and very well linked to the city centre with various services and mixed urban functions, it offers great opportunities to develop new urban functions in a vibrant neighborhood.
The neighborhood is at the north of an area that has recently been through a revitalization process. Today called ‘NoLo (North of Loreto), it is increasingly dynamic, thanks to the creation of start-ups and social activities by young entrepreneurs.

Located only 250m away from MM1 Gorla station, the site has can be easily accessed by public transportation. 

At the same time, Viale Monza is also an important traffic axis, connecting Milan to Monza and other towns of the metropolitan area.
