Renovations under way in the Old Town

The old town, especially after street and sidewalk restorations, is in much better shape than it has ever been since post war reconstruction









thanks demmat

And some restorations in mid-town


additional floor, more density, another plus, top floor setback avoids disrupting historic fašade.





thanks HenryKrzem

Some more midtown restorations completed and underway:



This one on Plac Unii Lubelskiej was one of the two tallest residential buildings in Warsaw when it was built. The floors were not reinforced concrete but employed the Klein method (I-beams filled with brick)





Pre war

thanks filoss

pre war



Nice restorations unveiled on Nowogrodzka near Plac Trzech Krzyzy

Yes, this is Warsaw from 1927. Photographed from the Poniatowski bridge. The National Stadium is now on the left.

Restoration and Mixed Use Redevelopment of the Pollena Factory Complex has begun. First phase ready by 2019

Yet another post industrial retrofit and redevelopment on right bank Warsaw after the Koneser Complex, located within walking distance of a new metro stop scheduled to open in 2019. This area with its original 19th century fabric is becoming very interesting reminiscent in spirit with New York's Soho. I only wish that the railway line that bisects Praga could be overcome with new pedestrian overpasses, this fact could really sap the dynamism of this area.

Lots of older kamienice are installing external elevators like this. Nice idea that avoids disrupting historic layouts on the interior.



thanks demmat

This looks like a modern interpretation of a baroque garden though.

The current design is based on a blueprint from the 1930s, which itself was a loose interpretation of a baroque garden. So you may say it's a baroque interpretation, twice removed.
