Warsaw had perhaps the opposite of the problem it has today and it was vastly overcrowded and unhealthy with very limited sunlight exposure in many areas so even without the war a lot of it would probably have to be demolished...

infilling is the most important process happening today that is helping Warsaw regain its coherence and beauty.

they didn't indicate what they were planning to do with the two rotundas. there were plans at one time to turn these into hotels...which would be an amazing place to stay. I'm very glad that so many surviving industrial complexes are being preserved, restored and redeveloped like this one, Koneser, Powisle powerplant and Pollena. The museum of the warsaw uprising was probably the first such retrofit/redevelopment.
