UniCredit Tower Milan
Design: Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects
Location: Milan, Italy
UniCredit Tower in Milan
Italy’s tallest building, it can be seen from up to six miles away.
The tower is topped by a structural stainless steel spire.
The tower, its sister buildings Porta Nuova Garibaldi Tower B and Porta Nuova Garibaldi Tower C and their podium make up the largest components of Porta Nuova Garibaldi, a mixed-use development north of Milan’s city centre.
The three towers all received LEED Gold precertification.
High-performance glazing, advanced building systems, high-efficiency lighting and daylight controls are all deployed in order to reduce energy consumption.
The three towers have been designed so that a direct line of sunlight will reach 90% of occupied areas.
The towers are engineered to create energy savings of 22.5%, a 37.3% reduction in the use of potable water, and 100% recycling of rainwater.
