20th September 2021
This exciting new urban regeneration project will allow Ventimiglia to improve the tourist-accommodation offer of the city, whilst enhancing the environmental heritage and historical-cultural riches of the area.
Ventimiglia Marina Development Corporation ("MDC"), a company active in the development of mixed-use real estate projects anchored to marinas, for wellness and leisure, have entrusted One Works for the design of all urban planning and environmental procedures aimed at creating the masterplan of "Marina di Ventimiglia". The urban regeneration project presented to the Municipality is aimed at creating a new tourist/accommodation destination on the seafront of the city of the western Ligurian Riviera.
Marina di Ventimiglia envisages a total investment of 200 million euros by the BDF fund, managed by Namira SGR and of which MDC is advisor, will be developed on a total area of 57,000sqm. The project includes several interventions: the main one, Borgo del Forte, will involve the Marina San Giuseppe area, where a top-of-the-range hotel will be built - a 5-star hotel with 20 suite rooms, gym, spa and restaurant, 60 apartments managed by the same hotel - and 70 branded apartments. The project also includes the construction of the La Rocca restaurant, located west of the residential-hotel complex, and Club Italia, which provides for the transformation of the "former ACI" building into a food & beverage center of excellence. In addition, Borgo del Forte Campus will be built in the Campasso area (30,00sqm), behind the natural area that rises at the mouth of the Nervia river: an international campus with a public green park, 6 tennis courts, an Olympic swimming pool, gym, an international school with attached accommodation for teachers, students and athletes, and event spaces.
Leonardo Cavalli, founder and managing partner of One Works, said: “We are thrilled to participate in such an important urban regeneration project. Ventimiglia has its roots in an ancient history, the character and uniqueness of the place are the founding elements of the project that aims to reposition this stretch of coast on the map of national and international tourism”
“I am extremely confident for this collaboration with One Works, a partner of the level that we have carefully selected for the skills and many years of experience in urban regeneration projects. Marina di Ventimiglia it is an ambitious project in which we strongly believed from the beginning, which will allow a rebirth of this city through sustainable development and the protection of the values of the territory, allowing it to position itself among the main tourist destinations nationally and internationally. The One Works appointment represents a final step for the urban variant that will see our vision of the Ventimiglia waterfront materialize.”
