Norblin factory complex will be restored and massively redeveloped in the next couple years. I'm posting it here because there is a large restoration component and these days as we all know restoration is almost always accompanied with intensification, this is what pays for the restoration. Otherwise it's difficult to convince developers in an urban context to undertake such costly projects:



Now (upper left part of picture)





Will be a new retail/office hub in Warsaw's new downtown in Wola

Primates Palace on Senatorska Street restored and converted into a 5 star hotel "Belotto". Current design of the building was completed in 1782 by E. Schr÷ger and Szymon. B. Zug. It has original 16th century basements. Damaged during the war it was rebuilt around 1949.

I like these parts of Warsaw that not many people know are original nearly intact enclaves of pre war Warsaw.

Sad that Warsaw lost so many buildings but the city is lucky as they seem to enjoy very high standards of modern architecture. At least from what I can see in this thread. And extremely tasteful conservation projects overall with very nicely integrated modern interventions.

This is stunning. At some point it must have been a dark damp and decrepit dungeon, so it's even more impressive!

It would be great if Warsaw organized basement tours showing ancient original ones like this one like Toronto's Open Door event. Even though most of surface Warsaw was demolished or severely damaged, so much of the original city exists below ground and if the newly restored Warsaw History Museum on the old market square is any indication, it's absolutely fascinating.

true overall but a lot of them need restoration, but over the last couple years there has been a visible improvement and quite rapidly so.

House under the Owls in Praga, some more details revealed. Looks like spire with conical roof at corner awaits completion...and some balcony railings. There are another couple of floors tucked into the sloped roof attic that is not visible from street level.







thanks demmat
