The Canton of Ticino, the City of Bellinzona, and Swiss Federal Railways will create this district within a 120,000 sqm area, incorporating housing, commerce and administration, a postgraduate education centre, culture and leisure, and, above all, technological development. A real “innovation district”, in line with the latest sustainability concepts.
The new Alptransit railway links and sustainable mobility concepts will bring the region’s various centres closer together, forming a sort of “Ticino City”. Bellinzona’s new Officine district, near the railway station, will become Ticino’s “northern gate”, with first-rate connections to the economic hubs of Zurich and Milan.
This project aims to promote collaboration between innovative companies and academic institutions. Uniting people with the same objectives, but from different sectors and backgrounds, will create the perfect conditions for collaborative initiatives designed to develop new products and services, stimulating an innovative spirit not only within the Park but throughout the Ticino region.
