The inclusion of Bosconavigli in the Forestami project is currently under study. The project envisions the planting of 3 million trees by 2030, in a strategic green initiative to combat the effects of climate change. This too the Green Milan of the future also starts from here.
Parco Lineare (Linear Park), a big new green space
The green future of the railway yards will also pass through Bosconavigli, immersing the entire area in the green and wooded expanse of the Parco Lineare.
Public transport and cycle paths
From the doorstep, it takes 10 minutes to reach the Washington-Bolivar or Tolstoj stations (MM4), and a new suburban railway stop, Canottieri Olona, is currently under study. For bike lovers, Bosconavigli is very close to the Alzaia del Naviglio cycle and pedestrian path that connects to the fully redeveloped Via San Cristoforo, with a cycle path providing easy access to the city centre.
A short distance from the Alzaia del Naviglio Grande, the church of San Cristoforo and the Darsena (old canal port), Bosconavigli is looking ahead. It isn’t a picture postcard from the past. But a beautiful postcard from the near future, where the pleasure of living, the exclusiveness and the comforts of technological innovations and amenities also mean empathizing with the surrounding ecosystems.
Bosconavigli is in Milan’s Creative District and rubs shoulders with the Via Tortona-Porta Genova area, with which it shares a vision of this new urban development scenario that defines the area’s identity between past and future, memory and innovation. As a key location for collateral events during the Salone del Mobile, the district is home to some major players in the world of ‘Made in Italy’ fashion and design. The area also has a powerful cultural offering, including the MUDEC Museum of Cultures, the Armani Silos, an exhibition space dedicated to the career of Giorgio Armani, and BASE, a vibrant 3,500-square-meter creative incubator.
Bosconavigli nestles between high density urban fabric and a low residential density green area characterized by the presence of the Naviglio. It is well served by public transport, making it possible not only to use neighbourhood services but also to become a prototype for “15 - minute city” developments. Retail, work, relaxation, sport, culture and leisure spaces can all be reached in about 15 minutes by foot, bicycle or other forms of ‘soft mobility’. Everything on your doorstep.
In Bosconavigli’s Flagship and Pop-up Stores, you can see scale models of the project and move around the area to get of all the new services.
