Quality Density
By Redazione The Plan -

A pillar of Milan’s sustainable Urban Plan is what is known as the “urban voids”. These will be turned into truly collective places for socialisation, flexible spaces that relate to their immediate urban surrounds. The proposed extensive and intensive service provision delivered by these “urban voids” is key to the city’s future development. Urban voids will constitute the green backbone of the new urban vision, a varying-scale series of pedestrian walkways, squares, open public spaces, cycle paths, circulation routes (for collective and private traffic), new services provision centres for the local and wider communities, neighbourhood shops and so on. The backbone structure confirms the overall strategy of the development plan whose underlying objective is to create greater service density that will in turn raise the overall quality of people’s lives. As the new Milan Urban Plan is rolled out, service quality standards should rise from 18 sq m to 36 sq m per inhabitant in just a few years.
