Brief description: Eastgate Park is a place where different approaches to doing business come together as part of an sustainable park. By promoting ecosystem, services the project aim is to deliver an efficient development that naturally enriches the local landscape and offer benefits beyond the immediate area. In the East Gate Park the vital ecosystems are conserved with active modalities, recognizing, recovering and restoring those precarious, furthering landscape re-naturalizing actions. The green infrastructure strategy provide for a Wetland system to improve the waste water treatment, a Reforestation to increase forest resilience and mitigate carbon emissiones; for a spontaneous - maintained green belt, replacing the existing perimeter wall, to restore ecological continuity; for a Public Park with common spaces for employers and users. The landscape process displayed a variety of patches that enhance the ecological habits in response to large homogeinity of crop mono cultures that covers the surroundings. According to an environmentally friendly approach, in 2006 the project won the URBANPROMO 2006 award for the elevated quality of the master plan's landscape strategy.
