How the Urban District takes shape



The first phase in the project to transform a Turin road axis and turn it into a main commercial road with a major role in the region. This work envisages the construction of around 25,000 square metres of commercial businesses in the catering and services sector, through a project that is the result of a careful architectural study, in order to create a pleasant, useful environment for citizens all year round.

The commercial facilities, with goods categories and characteristics complementary to those in open mall 1, are joined by this approx. 20,000 square metre part, which features service facilities such as spaces for co-working and healthcare (with testing laboratories or medical and rehabilitation clinics). The distinctive feature of this part is a large, equipped park that links up with routes that extend for over 1 km in the various directions, connecting other parts and functions nearby.

On Corso Romania, doubled along its whole length compared to its present form so as to reach the two lanes in both directions in separate carriageways and provided with an adequate cycle lane, two buildings will be developed to host tertiary services (executive offices that will house the new Italian headquarters of the multinational Michelin) and a hotel for business travellers, serving the businesses present in the area.

In order to give the road axis under development a unique entertainment facility, also comprising training and education services, a development of more than 30,000 square metres was planned, able to host school groups and young people, as well as families, throughout the day and all year round. The offer will comprise a cinema and latest-generation electric go-karts, as well as indoor and outdoor sports facilities and a wide range of restaurant facilities looking onto a large green area that is a portion of the green belt linking back up with the other green areas in the city, and in which an events area is contemplated.
