The current city hall is far to small and they have to return the building to its rightful owners, so it's only a matter of time. 2015 looks like a realistic start date, but no word yet. Cheers.
I hope it does get underway in 2015 it will be such a great addition to the city. Perhaps the reconstruction of the Royal Palace in Berlin will be a spur to get them going! I really love Warsaw, don't necessarily like some of the new high rise but overall the city has a great atmosphere and it's wonderful to see it coming to life again as a major European centre. My greatest regret is that the commies destroyed what was left (well most) of Marshall street, one of the finest streets in Europe so that now there is almost no hope of that ever being rebuilt. Tragedy for Warsaw.

Pilsudski Square Restoration Complete

This is what the rebuilt palaces will face. Please note the lit axial line cutting through the square demarcating the Saski Axis that connects the square, palace and gardens.

This building was planned but never built. It was a post war structure in a Polish Renaissance style. I think it would have looked great.

Views like this dismiss any doubt as to the authenticity of Warsaw's rebuilt old town, even some of the unsightly accretions only further attest to its vitality:



Thanks filoss

They should dust off some of these old designs and build them.

Some infill kamienice (multi-unit townhouses) that I may not have shown earlier. Some are a couple years old. Enjoy



the one in the middle is a retroversionist historic kamienica and the one next to it is proudly modernist



nearly complete

Looks like typical Stalin-style highrise. If it's Polish Renaissance, then Moscow and Minsk are capitals of Polish Renaissance.

Well, since what we call "Polish Renaissance" originated from Italy, and since Soviet socialist' realism is based i.a. on Kremlin's towers (which roots are also Italian) - there is a clear link

I like them. Good modern buildings that fit well into the surrounding area. Can't wait to go back to Warsaw again, it's been 7 years since my last visit and obviously a lot has happened since then. I really like this city so much to see and not overwhelmed by tourists in the summer unlike Krakow, though of course I can understand why so many people want to go there.

hey cameronpaul, if you go next year in summer you could see the new Praga Museum and the new Museum of the History of Polish Jews and the reopened and much enhanced Warsaw History Museum on the Old Town Square. And ofcourse the Warsaw Uprising Museum has had numerous additions, but what will stun you is the area around it, where a new central business district, another skyscrapercity cluster has developed. A tremendous lot has changed since 2006, the new subway line might also be open, but no guarantees there. The Old Town and Krakowskie Przedmiescie has undergone a massive restoration as well.

Good point! (although in Kremlin only walls and bottoms of towers are Italian, their tops with steeples which were added later had been made by Russians themselves - with a help of Brits)
