“Le Albere”: Ex-Michelin Area Redevelopment, Trento (Italy)

The project, an innovative example of sustainable construction, consisted of the creation of 300 dwelling units, a 30,000-m2 business area, a car park, 30,000 m2 of roads and sidewalks and a five-ha park inside the 11-ha area of the former Michelin factory site in Trento. Renewable energy resources, materials locally available and “LEED” and “Casa Clima” certification schemes were used as part of the project.
