DETAILS ON THE PROJECT
The masterplan project concerning the three residual sub-areas of the more complex Livorno Porta a Mare project, is followed by the design company One Works and is currently undergoing a general revision in the light of the pandemic. Below we present some characteristics of the three different areas:
- LIPS: this area will be mainly intended for tourist accommodation and leisure activities, it represents the connection between the sea and the city and it was designed to meet the need for hospitality, linked to water sports that see the city of Livorno excel nationwide, and to the numerous users of nearby shipyards. The project involves the construction of a complex consisting of a hotel with 120 rooms and 50 tourist hotel residences, as well as a state-of-the-art multiplex. The new buildings are connected on one side to the city, through newly built infrastructures, and on the other to the tourist port through a pedestrian walkway built on the ancient Medici walls erected in 1600 to protect the city.
- MOLO MEDICEO: this area, surrounded by the sea on three sides, lends itself to multiple activities, in particular commercial and office uses are provided. The project involves the construction of a structure of public interest of about 600 square meters “lying” on a large roof garden, all designed so as to leave the sea the undisputed protagonist of the context.
- ARSENALE: this area is also surrounded by the sea and it’s the closest to one of the main city streets of Livorno. Here it is planned the construction of niche residences aimed at those who, while wanting to be in the city center, want the tranquility and quiet that only the sea can offer. In fact, about 4000 square meters of surfaces will be created spread over three buildings of modern conception but perfectly contextualized with the nearby historical presences. The apartments will have large terraces and the complex will have a green space for exclusive use.
The necessary parking lots will also be built, partly underground, and partly on piloty and with the completion of the urbanization works, the areas will be connected to the city by roads and cycle-pedestrian paths.
