'Move in. Moving buildings, integrating services' The 'Move in. Moving buildings, integrating services' for Niguarda and San Siro: two projects for two districts that look beyond the historic center in which to experiment a single integrated model of housing services, proximity services and actions to support housing, enhancing the networks already active territories and introducing spaces where to promote innovative projects for the development of the local community. One insists on the Greco-Niguarda area, to the north east, the other concerns that of San Siro, to the west.

Both aim at the regeneration of areas and spaces already defined and built, and each identify a public property to be recovered and redesigned – in via Pianell in Niguarda and an Aler building in via Newton in San Siro, to which are added some public housing neighborhoods to be restored – assigning it to transitional housing with sustainable rent as the fulcrum of a broader plan to upgrade the housing system and urban welfare services, which also includes the arrangement of neighboring streets and public spaces, as well as the provision of new services proximity available to the inhabitants of the neighborhood, especially young people, as workshops, spaces dedicated to micro-enterprises, cultural activities, co-working and being together. The objective is therefore twofold: to increase both in quantity and in quality the transitory residential possibilities for people in difficulty, as well as for young students and workers, and at the same time to contribute to the construction of more liveable neighborhoods, better served and capable of offering greater opportunity for those who live there.

The project in via Pianell The lot in via Pianell, a total area of ​​about one thousand square meters, will include an articulated building with five floors above ground, with a gross surface area of ​​approximately 2,900 square meters which will become a hub for temporary residence with various types of rooms / places. bed (90, plus 5 mini lodgings). The ground floor spaces will be reserved for proximity services open to the neighborhood. The project also provides for the launch of differentiated accompanying services for the guests of the hub and the creation of a micro-entrepreneurial reality that can also offer job opportunities for the same users of the hub.

The project in San Siro In San Siro, the building in via Newton (now used as offices that will be transferred to the neighboring via Zamagna), with a gross surface area of ​​1,965 square meters, will be given on free loan for 25 years to the Administration that will arrange it, also with the optimization of spaces, to transform it into a hub for temporary residence with rooms for short stays and some mini-apartments for longer rentals, for a total of 104 beds. The works also include the completion of the first floor and the construction of a second one, and the creation of spaces for shared services for the inhabitants, including a concierge, common rooms, a laundry room and a kitchen.

Also for this intervention, social support measures are envisaged both to support nuclei in socio-economic difficulty leaving the temporary housing service towards other more stable solutions, and to support the micro-entrepreneurial start-up phase through which to create opportunities for professional integration and start-up. of services open to the district.
