Some recent pics (chronological mix with most recent at end) of the restoration/revitalization of the Europejski Hotel (1855-1877, rebuilt post war although much of fašade survived):




drying out foundation walls. the new building will have four underground floors for parking among other functions





gutting



temporary roof cover after old top floor removed



one of the best preserved original interiors







new top floor











old meets new









new acoustical baffles installed between floors









[IMG]/v/t1.0-9/11196230_10152795027846017_396986850371965772_n.jpg?oh=7f423c856d0ebb9b8efb8986b0ef5a90&oe=562B5739[/IMG]





last floor replaced with 2 new floors, setback from building perimeter and sloped along the outside:





most of the floors replaced post war had to be replaced whereas pre-war floors were largely in good shape



first guest floor. I stayed in this hotel in 1996 and at that time each room was narrow with one window.



-4 parking garage level



original vaulted ceiling in basement - future spa



retail space -1





this curious feature is still under wraps, but will be revealed like an easter egg - apparently a surprise discovery from the original hotel



another original element to be unveiled

The view will be pretty great. Shocked it took so long to get this building renovated.



Opening in 2017.

Actually I believe it's opening in mid 2016, maybe someone from the project could correct me. I would love to stay there for at least one night. I stayed at the Bristol when it reopened in 96 and was wowed, but this will be amazing.

Well obviously, but considering the war, regime change and strapped resources, Warsaw did alright.

Jeb Bush recently visited the Warsaw Uprising Museum.
Warsaw Uprising - not to be confused with the separate Jewish Uprising of 1943.

this long awaited has started, located in the Powisle district astride the Vistula River:

pre-war:



recently:



the top floor and mansard roof were destroyed during the war and as you can see a part of the fašade collapsed, much of the interior has survived as well as the main doors and wrought-iron details with the PKO insignia.

soon:

Jeb Bush and his ilk are the ones in America trying to take away funding to preservation and reconstruction efforts, POS.

Hey Photlitherland I'm here to view European architecture being restored and not to hear your tedious politics. Now go watch MSNBC and drink your Kool Aid

Amazing must-see film on reconstruction of Warsaw and the politics around it. Sorry only in Polish, wish it had subtitles. Narrator speaks a lot about why so many intact buildings were destroyed post-war: in short, ideology, need to expand roads but also private owners felt they could redevelop their properties easier if they were pulled down and they got paid for bricks....this is before communism really got imposed. Also, a cute segment on volunteers who helped to rebuild the city, in many cases just a gesture really, but there were others. The daughter of Jan Zachwatowicz, probably the greatest Polish architect and city builder of the 20th century, speaks about how her father convinced the communists to let Poles rebuild old town....very clever
