The project introduces the first high-end residential high-rise living to Milan with two towers designed by Arquitectonica. Soaring above retail and amenity levels, Solaria and Aria offer world-class views to the Alps and to the city center below with floor to ceiling glass. The project takes the form of three rectangular solids converging in such a way as to create a triangular void. This central core brings light and ventilation throughout the complex. Each residential unit enjoys exposure on three sides, with views of the Duomo di Milano and the Alps.

Solaria rises 34 residential floors with typical units ranging from 829 SF (77 SM) to 2,799 SF (260 SM). Aria is comprised of two independent wings and rises to a height of 17 residential floors with typical unit sizes that vary from 624 SF (58 SM) to 2,960 SF (275 SM). At the top of each tower are two-story duplex units and three-story penthouse units with roof gardens and pools from 2,691 SF – 6,458 SF (250 SM – 600 SM). Each tower also feature a private gym, party room, swimming pool and spa amenities. Projecting balconies are staggered in such a way as to set up a contrapuntal rhythm. At night the railings are illuminated to create a ghostly, hovering effect.
