There has been a turning point regarding the new stadium project as some amendments to the plans provide for the total demolition of San Siro, a report claims.
La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) reports that the latest project present to the Council of Milan and then sent to Rome presents some new hypotheses that could have a big impact on the public debate process.
The choice has been made by the two Milanese clubs to completely demolish the current San Siro stadium. Milan and Inter were asked to reconsider the volumetric index, which in the original project was 0.51 and was considered too high, as well as to keep in mind the possibility of a large green area around the new facility.
These two requests were the main causes of the latest decision by Milan and Inter to definitively demolish the San Siro without leaving a single trace of it, whereas before there were plans to preserve at least part of the stands.
The public debate process will get underway in the coming weeks as 10 meetings will be held in the next two months in which the proposal of the two clubs will be analysed by various sectors of the city.
The plan is as follows: to get the final approval in November, wait for the relevant authorisations by the end of the year and at the beginning of 2024 building could start. The new stadium could thus be ready for the 2027-2028 season, with a cost of €1.2bn.
