The area of intervention is located inside the urban framework of the Comasina district. To be more specific: on the North and West side of the plot runs the limit between the Municipality of Milano and Novate, while on the South side there is the presence of existing residential neighbourhoods that started growing in the 50s. This is considered an emblematic example of the so-called “self-sufficient district“ and it is one of the main intervention realized by the Istituto Autonomo Case Popolari (Autonomous Institute for Social Housing).
The area of Via Novate is now a green area where it is possible to build housing, as described in the PGT. InvestiRE began an urban procedure with the Municipality of Milan for the realization of a proposal of Implementation Plan, as stated in the article 11 of the rules plan, with the final goal of realizing an intervention of Social Housing on the area in Via Novate.

A total of 353 housing units will be realized with their parking spaces and about 400 m² of services for the Housing.
The starting proposal of the Implementing Plan predicts to do the urbanization works and a public road with double direction with perpendicular parking spaces on both sides and the necessary works to fix the public green spaces for the areas, to be transferred both directly and indirectly.
