Polna Corner gradually being unveiled. What a grand way to repair a corner and really an entire street where a new street was cut through a dense built out area that survived the war leaving the back ends of buildings facing the street.









Big thanks to Ring, probably the best photographer on this forum.

MDM, the mixed use post war housing district built in the style of socialist realism (architects: Stanisław Jankowski Jan Knothe Józef Sigalin Zygmunt Stępiński) has been officially placed on the historic registry. Modelled after Stalinallee and Karl-Marx-Alee in then East Berlin and the monumental development along Gorky Street in Moscow, the development revolves around Plac Konstytucji and consists of 70 buildings:

What's going on with this ghetto looking area? Will any of these buildings be revitalized?

Warsaw Museum reopening after a massive restoration and enlargement on May 26-28. All of the exhibits, which btw are all original, will be complete and open to the public by the second half of the year:

What's the deal with the cleaning of the pictured museum of the Palace of Culture?

Cleaning the entire complex including the scraper would be immensely newsworthy so this is essentially just some random small cleanup to "test the waters" as they so eloquently say? Surely not a catalyst?

Is there a news source about why they started this? I'm on bended knees hopeful that in my lifetime the Palace will be cleaned so I do apologize for my rather overt enthusiasm over a small piece of a wall being bathed

I heard a while ago about plans to restore the facade of the PoCS. This could very well be it.

Also the Prudential reconstruction turned out really nice, although I do wish they kept the original style of fenestration instead of the single pane of glass.

PoC work is a test for methods of cleaning. Overall cleaning will take place once 20 million zloties have been raised. It will be a big job

It supposed to be just the windows but not long ago a forummer claimed they will clean the facade in the same time I sure hope it's true.

it will be nice to see this hole in Wola finally filled in. If all goes well and current sales/leasing trends are encouraging, all should be finished within 5 years.
