Planet Smart City is an adviser to REDO, the first smart affordable neighbourhood in Italy
Located in the Rogoredo-Santa Giulia neighbourhood, south-east of Milan’s downtown, Redo is a residential project which consists of 615 apartments offered in various models for either lease and for sale. Planet Smart City provided smart engineering consulting for the project, integrating innovative solutions in four key areas: environment, architecture, technology and community. The project has been developed by The Lombardy Real Estate Fund, managed by InvestiRE SGR, whereas the Social Housing Foundation has provided social-welfare expertise.
REDO Milan’s buildings meet Class A energy standards and are connected to a district heating system and a fiber optic network. Residents will be able to monitor and manage energy consumption and other innovative services using the Planet App. The application also allows residents to reserve common areas that are dedicated to community initiatives, socialize with other inhabitants and learn about and take part in events organized in the neighbourhood.
“When we crossed paths with Planet Idea, we immediately realized that they were the right partner to accompany us in the concrete development of our ideas which we have gained through our experience developing more than 6,000 apartments over the last ten years and through listening to the needs of residents” said Fabio Carlozzo, managing director of InvestiRE SGR. “Planet has brought us a range of tangible smart solutions that together we have developed and integrated into REDO, making the project the vanguard of urban innovation in Milan“, he added.
The area is an important transportation hub that includes high speed trains, the M3 subway line, and many other surface lines. Apartments will be available to residents at the end of the year.
