An initiative whose promoters have set themselves the aim of bringing to the attention of stakeholders the issues of environmental sustainability, decarbonisation, innovation and social inclusion, technological and digital integration, so that the development of certain brownfield areas can be a new reference model for the capital of the Piedmont Region and former capital of Italy.

This is the development objective of the Promoting Committee of Turin Innovation Mile, a project officially presented on Thursday 15 February in the subalpine city, and which will benefit from the contribution of public and private entities, such as Environment Park, Infra.To, Liftt, New Cleo, Nexto, OGR, Planet Smart City and Polytechnic of Turin.

The projects can already be imagined in the various renderings of the architecture firm Benedetto Camerana, based in the Piedmontese capital.

Two areas, currently owned by FS Sistemi Urbani and with a total surface area of ​​two hundred thousand square metres, have in fact been identified by the Promoting Committee on the ideal Innovation Mile, the axis that leads from the Polytechnic to the Dora station, with the railway station of Bring Susa to the center.

The first area is located in the central area between Porta Susa station and the OGR, at the intersection between Corso Bolzano and Corso Vittorio Emanuele II.

Over 52 thousand square meters of gross surface area, well connected by the Porta Susa railway and underground station and the bus station for the Turin and Milan Malpensa airports.

There, the construction of a building that constitutes a landmark in relation to the Intesa SanPaolo skyscraper and the Porta Europa area is also planned, creating a triangle of visual relationships that marks the entire intervention included in Spina 1.

The second area is adjacent to the Environment Park technology park, between Corso Principe Oddone, Piazza Baldissera, Corso Vigevano and Corso Umbria and runs alongside the residential complexes built in the Spina 3 transformation project.

This is 143 thousand square meters of surface area, on which new innovative buildings can be built in full respect of the existing historic building, which must be included in the transformation of the area.

The two areas have already been the subject of architectural and urban planning studies, of which the coordination of the Committee (entrusted to the president Davide Canavesio and the two vice-presidents Stefano Corgnati and Giacomo Portas) is able to provide the first sketches.
