The upper side of the interactive map is not a hundred percent compatible with what will be done though; some streets should be shifted up a bit.

The scale of the project reminds me of Hauptbahnhof project in Vienna. Impressive, Lodz will be a different city after finihing this.

Maybe its a bit smaller but its still huge and unlike the Hbf in Vienna its much more central. Once this project is finished it appears to me that this will be in fact part of the very centre of the city. It looks like a fantastic upgrade of the urban heart of Lodz. And its always nice if something like comes with a public transportation hub right in the middle.

Maybe It's smaller as an urban project, but as you said, thanks to It's central location we can place there some outstanding and very important cultural and service investments. And perhaps the most important thing - we are moving our main station (Fabryczna) under the ground and than connecting with Kaliska station by tunnel making Fabryczna central!

Green light for the sale of the lot prepared for 'City Gate'

To sell or not land at the Gate City ? Above this question councilors debated eight hours . There were dozens of questions , suspicions of corruption and insulting . Finally, the transaction councilors agreed. This can be caused later in the year

From morning debated Commission on New Centre of Łódź and the Plan Commission . Councillors did not believe in pure intentions of potential buyers of land for Gate City , where he was parking in front of Railway Station . They wanted a guarantee that the land will not be sold cheaper than the price resulting from the review of the potential value , or about 37 million zł .

Councillors of both the committee also took the position in which the turn to Prime Minister Donald Tusk of " taking the tender procedure preventative actions under the anti-corruption shield ." This , in turn, felt hurt municipal representatives working on the preparation of land for sale .

- I feel quite offended - said Vice President Agnieszka Nowak .

- This opinion councilors say that driving with the project to the fair to Cannes or Berlin , conducted criminal activities and corruption - said the visibly upset vice president Mark Cieslak .

Finally, the Commission for the New Centre of Łódź took the view that agrees to the deal, but only if the mayor writes to a resolution of the value below which the transaction can not be completed . The Plan Commission do not vote in their position and decided to wait to put the sales amount in the resolution .

- What wozimy investors at the construction site , since then we are afraid to sell the land - said after meeting Vice President Cieslak . - Working in such an atmosphere , in a climate of innuendo about corruption may cause the investor withdraws from the transaction.

Everything had to be decided at an extraordinary meeting of the city council . To deal was finalized later this year , the decision could not wait . The schedule is very tight and it shows that to sign the deed may be December 31 .

During the session, it was less emotional . Proposed a compromise solution . The contents of the resolution entered in the land is worth 39 million zł . Also adopted two other resolutions , in which the city council expects the mayor that the land will not be sold cheaply. The fact that this does not happen , they promised and Cieslak Zdanowska councilor .

Matthew Walasek on behalf of the club's Civic Platform persuaded to sell the land , because "it is a good project ."

- Are the most important jobs for the city . We keep our word for president you did not sell off land - said Vladislav Skwarka on behalf of the Democratic Left Alliance . Councillors supported the group finally decided to sell .

- We have no basis to believe the president - said Piotr Adamczyk of Law and Justice, which did not support the sale .

The council voted 32 in favor, 7 against and no abstentions .

Author of this film may be right, but only if you consider investments done by city administration or government that is infrastructure in general.

Private investments in Łódź are sadly still at very low level considering the city's population and compared to other polish big cities.
