A former sand quarry in Milan is becoming a new hub of accommodation and wellness as an innovative site rehabilitation gets ready to start.

The Milan quarry was used in its past life to extract sand for the surrounding towns but has since become a lake after the quarry was shut down and operations ceased.

The Scandinavian company was selected to develop the area two years ago with a mandate to transform the disused quarry into a leisure precinct with a wellness centre, restaurant and floating accommodation.

The aim is to bring together the surrounding neighbourhoods which were separated due to the lake as well as attract new residents and tourists to the area to enjoy the former quarry.
