CityLife Shopping District Architizer A+ Awards finalist

CityLife Shopping District in Milan is a finalist of the Architizer A+ Awards that honour the year’s best architecture, spaces & products.

Located above Tre Torri station on line M5 of Milan’s Metro network, CityLife Shopping District integrates a new public park with indoor and outdoor piazzas, food hall, restaurants, cafes, shops and cinema as well as facilities for health and wellbeing.

The 32,000m² shopping district will welcome seven million visitors each year when the CityLife redevelopment fully completes in 2020. One of Europe’s largest redevelopment projects, CityLife will include 1,000 new homes, offices for almost 10,000 staff, the new 42-acre park, piazzas and a kindergarten.

Bamboo flooring, ceiling and columns welcome visitors to the shopping district’s interior. Selected for its warmth and tactility, engineered bamboo is extremely durable and can be procured in a large quantity from sustainable sources.

Opening Milan’s old trade fair grounds to year-round civic use by integrating the new public park with Milan’s most extensive pedestrian zone, CityLife has created the largest new public space in the city in more than 120 years.

One A+ Award finalist in each category will win a Popular Choice Award based on the number of public votes they receive. Voting is now open until 20 July.
