New skyscraper in Warsaw...



Wroclaw 45 | 5,410   15 Dec 2007 /  #31
Ok these are nice pictures but when are they going to build all those skyscrapers?

The Wroclaw project has already started. They have cleared the area and are ahead of schedule. It will probably be another year or two before they excavate the area and get the foundations back up to ground level.

Some buildings go up at the rate of a floor a week. Others might go up at a floor a month.
I imagine Wroclaw's tallest building [and possibly Poland's] will be ready in about five years.
Some of the apartments are already on sale at a minimum of 10,000zl per sq meter.

Very nice looking skyscrapers...long overdue. I like them a lot.

Is Donald Trump moving to Poland or something? :)

As I understand things. The richest guy in Poland is building the one in Wroclaw and then taking the penthouse.

Times had changed a lot for the good. I remember how excited my uncle was when they built the Hotel Forum in Warsaw!
He had a watch repair shop close by (Nowogrodzka). Worked well for the business for him then!

The first one is built by Kulczyk, the one in Wrocław by Leszek Czarnecki, Sea Towers by Invest Komfort SA, the rest I don't know. One more in Warsaw: dziennik.pl/wydarzenia/article96701/Krolowa_architektury_buduje_w_stol icy.html?service=print

Hopefully they are not going to sink...

It looks impressive though - and I heard the flats were sold out straight away!

Don't forget to mention: Shalom tower, Jewish community center in Warsaw. My dear Grzegorz. Our campital is going to look much more impressive than London, Paris and Berlin.

The towers in Gdynia look very nice, probably the best with their watery counterpart for a view. They aren't very futuristic but have their own appeal to Gdynia
VaFunkoolo 6 | 654   1 Jul 2008 /  #46
The towers in Gdynia do look good and the location is great. But there have been big problems with construction and it is rumoured that they have shifted 10cms at the foundations

Libeskind Tower (the shining one) on Zlota 44, started in 2007 I think: Zlota 44

And Warsaw today:

Top architects help to reshape Poland's capital city of Warsaw
1 day ago

WARSAW, Poland — History beat Poland's capital to a pulp in the first half of the 20th century, then patched it up with blocs of communist concrete in the second.

Now, backed by a resurgent economy, Warsaw is shaking off its socialist architectural hangover and putting forward a bold new face of glistening skyscrapers, designed by some of the world's top architects.

"After two generations of the greyness of communism, Warsaw has entered a really fantastic period of a renaissance and of a dynamic new architecture," said American architect Daniel Libeskind during a recent visit. He designed Berlin's landmark Jewish Museum and the master plan for New York's ground zero.

personally I like the Palace of Culture. Of course I understand the history and so forth. But most of these new buildings look like plastic and there is no conformity what so ever. Apparently there is a plan to surround the palace with a number of modern skyscrapers. They will have to renovate the central train station in Warsaw before the euro 2012 as well.
Kowalski 7 | 624   13 Jul 2008 /  #50
They won't do much with Warszawa Centralna before euro 2012, some touch ups only. Major reconstruction is scheduled for later on.

[Polish Cynicism] Only Złota has redeeming qualities about her, the rest are either hideous or will never come to fruition. [/Polish Cynicism]
WooPee 1 | 124   25 Dec 2008 /  #53
The first 5 are already under construction.

Other are negotiating price of the ground or other things.

I didn't post projects that are only projects on paper. Investors of all of the buildings from the list made serious steps to start construction.
Przemas 1 | 101   25 Dec 2008 /  #54
Well, this Kaleidoscope as its called is rather a fairy tale project at this moment, the render is also that.
carlb 4 | 20   27 Dec 2008 /  #55
Some nice renders there but with the current economic downturn, I'd be surprised if any of the proposed talls get underway within the next couple of years.
Przemas 1 | 101   27 Dec 2008 /  #56
The Lilium project is taking quite the ravaging from the locals. Once a highly touted future addition to the Warsaw skyline, now it is regarded as completely out of place.
WooPee 1 | 124   27 Dec 2008 /  #57
Design is ready, company responsible for construction process is ready as well, engineers are also ready to start, and money is not a problem at all.

What kind of locals can stop that project? It's a district of offices, malls and hotels, not many people is living there.

It's a district of offices, malls and hotels, not many people is living there.

how many skysscrapers can one build in a district where theres barely any people? does this make sense?

it might drag in some business, but if the area isnt highly traveled whos going to set up shop somewhere where its proven fact that its not accepted by locals and doesnt have a large profitable future?

I think trying to force these projects will only create anger, you have to be backed by the citizens,, not just the govt. crime will go up even higher..
