Production area


All the buildings of this area have been demolished during the autumn of 2012. They will be replaced with energy efficient structures. The preliminary project for these buildings is being handled by Kengo Kuma & Associates. The project foresees:

  • 26.000 square meters of spaces for light industry
  • a zone for the heating plant (biomass, geothermal and heat pumps, and a condensation ring)
  • centralized logistics area
  • underground parking

Around 7.000 square meters along the Leno river waterfront are destined for public uses:

  • auditorium for 700 people
  • training center for the green community
  • commercial space for bars, resaurants, entertainment
  • space for sports activities

The buildings will be covered with a green roof that will function as a public park and as the connection between the river and the historic area.
