PLP lands €160m Milan tower project

PLP's Corso Como Place in Milan

Architect to repurpose 1960s tower in city’s high-rise business district

PLP has unveiled €160m plans to breathe new life into a 1962 office tower in Milan that has lain empty for years.

The 20,500sq m project is part of the vast Porta Nuova regeneration project just north of the city’s historic core on former railway lands that formed an impermeable void in the city for more than 60 years.

Porta Nuova was partly masterplanned by members of the practice, initially when they were at rival KPF. They also designed three of the area’s towers, including the 130m tall Diamantone which completed in 2014.
