By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan and Inter have officially announced that the project presented by the Populous studio, known as “the Cathedral”, has been chosen for their new stadium.

As MilanNews reports, the press release states that the public interest resolution issued by the Municipality of Milan last November provides, in addition to the construction of the new stadium, the reconfiguration of the area where the Meazza currently stands, through the creation in the San Siro area of ​​a district for sports and leisure time, with a new public park of about 50 thousand square meters of filtering greenery.

There will be approximately 110 thousand square meters of green areas, 40% of the area. The car parks, which currently represent 27% of the surface of the area, will be completely underground with the absence of surface car parks.

Following the resolution, the two sides have accelerated the decision-making process to finalise the choice of Populous and subsequently start the final design, which will require a few months of work with the aim of arriving at a presentation of a complete project in the course of 2022.

“The Cathedral” wants to represent a celebratory icon of the artistic heritage of the city. The project is inspired, in fact, by two of the most representative buildings in Milan, the Duomo and Galleria Vittorio Emanuele

Milan president Paolo Scaroni said: “The new San Siro will be the most beautiful stadium in the world characterised by a strong identity and recognisability. An attractive, accessible and sustainable stadium that will represent a new icon for the city of Milan and will make it possible to support the development of the two clubs by strengthening their competitiveness at an international level.”
