The call for tender for the concession to restructure and manage the Hennebique Silos was officially published by the Western Ligurian Sea Port Authority on 21 June 2019. The deadline for the submission of offers is 31 October 2019
Further to the recent presentation of the comprehensive technical specifications on the redevelopment of the former grain silos, located along the Ponte Parodi waterfront in the Old Port, one of the first facilities to be built in reinforced-concrete in 1901, the Port Authority has announced all the details of the concession: a leasehold of 90 years and an annual concession fee of 375,000 euros. The range of possible alternative uses of the building has been expanded to include hospitality, residential, retail and public services, in order to capitalise upon the strategic position of the Hennebique Silos in the heart of the Old Port, overlooking both the sea and the historic centre, alongside the Cruise Terminal and walking distance from the International P. Principe Railway Station, as a highly attractive location for investors. Given its setting in an urban context, the renovation of the Hennebique Silos represents the final step in the completion of the successful large-scale redevelopment of Genoa’s waterfront and can be used to bridge the gap between the urban fabric and the cruise and tourist activities which characterise the area.
