Milan: The new Lombardy House - Palazzo Lombardia
Milan

Palazzo Lombardia, with its 163 meters heigth, it is the second tallest building in Italy. Completed in 2010, it was designed by Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, an awarded architectural company based in New York.

The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, CTBUH, has awarded in 2012 the Palazzo Lombardia as the Best Tall Building in Europe: "In a city known for history and fashion, the tower is perfectly attuned to the urban environment. More than simply a tower, the project creates a cohesive blend of parks and commercial space, with an appropriate local flair" - Anthony Wood CTBUH.
Palazzo Lombardia is in fact a complex of buildings housing the new offices of Lombardy Regional Government. It is rather close to the just completed Unicredit Tower that, with its 231 meters heigth, is the tallest building in Italy: it can be seen in the 360 Photo.

Milan will host the EXPO 2015 Universal Exposition and is undergoing an important development in different areas, with many new constructions for business, residential and administration purposes.
