Torre Diamante (Diamantone or Diamond Tower) is a skyscraper housing offices that towers in Centro Direzionale district, between viale della Liberazione and via Galilei. The building was designed by architect Kohn Pederson Fox between 2010 and 2012, as part of a rehabilitation project named Progetto Porta Nuova, and it is a 30-storey building with a height of 140 m (460 ft).
The Torre Diamante is the 4th highest skyscraper of Milan, the 5th highest skyscraper of Italy and has a multifaceted shape that reminds us of a diamond (thus explaining its name). A few shorter buildings, named Diamantini, stand by the skyscraper, and also house offices. The building’s main characteristic is its irregular structure: the exterior pillars are sloping. The interior of the building is organized around a central section, in order to have the best natural lighting and, at the same time, a full view of the city.
Like the other buildings that are part of Progetto Porta Nuova, the Torre Diamante was built according to ecological principles. On top of the building, the multi-colour LED lighting adorns the skyscraper’s tip.
