Allianz Real Estate has launched the redevelopment of Corso Italia 23, the architectural complex designed in 1958 by Gio Ponti, Piero Por1taluppi and Antonio Fornaroli. Set far completion in 2022, the goal is to build a campus in the city, a 'bes t piace to work' and an asset which is 'Smart-ready' - where future occupants will be able to choose which technolog ies they want to integrate acoording to the ir operating requirements. The project is designed by New Yorkbased architects Skidmore Owings & Merrill (SOM).
Corso Italia 23 was born after the second world war as the headquarter of the histor ical insurance company RAS (Riun ione Adriatica di Sicurtà) which , in 2006, combined with Allianz AG to form a new holding company, the Allianz SE group. In 2007 the new Italian holding company, Allianz S.p.A., was formed, incorporating additional companies of the Group - Allianz Subalpina and Lloyd Adriatico. In 2018 the Milanese headquarters of Allianz S.p.A. moved into the new Allianz Tower in CityLife. The move to CityLife consolidated all of Allianz’s offices in one representative place after years of steady growth. This redevelopment of the historic Milanese headquarters, which is being managed by Allianz Real Estate, confirms the commitment of the property’s owner – Allianz Italy - – to the city of Milan and the community of Santa Sofia.
Considering its central location and remarkable dimensions, Corso Italia 23 represents a unique development opportunity in Milan while also standing out for its design. It will feature new standards of technology and sustainability, overcoming existing architectural barriers and optimizing energy saving through solar panels and new materials for the facades, leading to a considerable reduction in heat loss. The different amenities and common areas, above all the inner courtyard, introduce new spaces for socializing around the workplace. This process of regeneration and definition of identity is redressing the work-life balance through the creation of ‘interconnected‘ areas, with horizontal and vertical paths engaging all available space.
