Any talk of it being rebuilt?? I like the bigger, more opulent version.

In case nobody heard, they want to build something new in the Old Town.

Interesting, the proportions fit well with the area but to tell you the truth I think it might take away from the vista in the area. I wonder if the conservator of the city will go for this one as from what I remember there was some sort of palace on the site in the past.

I think the project looks great, I just wish they would use a red tile roof to blend in more with the surrounding buildings.

A lot of the nearby buildings have green / black pannelled roofs

Yes and so does the Palac pod Blacha, so its not entirely inconsistent.

Why would they do that? It's the only authentic pat of Warsaw rebuilt with a lot of hard work. Can't they build it elsewhere, there's plenty of space.

I found this amazing website and will share these pictures for dramatic affect. I'm not sure where else to post them. The other Warsaw 1945 page was closed.
All pics were taken in Warsaw by Leonard Sempolinski (b.1902-d.1988).
