EuroMilano’s Cascina Merlata Social Village is a housing complex that is part of a vast urban regeneration project that involves the entire Cascina Merlata area in the north west part of Milan, adjacent to Expo2015 and the Rho-Pero fairground. Eleven tower buildings totalling 87,200 sq m are involved providing 690 apartments developed in two construction phases.

In the first phase, seven buildings providing 397 apartments classified in energy class A, were completed in February 2015 and were used during Expo2015 for international delegations and staff of participating countries. After the fair the buildings were renovated in a project that included both the apartments themselves and the common areas. The apartments are now offered for long-term rent or sale.
