And what will they serve? Give power to the city or will there be offices?

EDIT: So that you know, here in Sweden, we got some old historical power stations/industial building that got renovated to offices. It looks nice, because you think these building are power station but when you enter the building than you get a different point of view of the building (like Tate Modern in London, but it is a museum instead of a office-building).

I will use google translate for this:

EC1 west

The EC-1 Building West created as an interactive Science and Technology Centre, which will be the Centre for Education and Museum and recreation.

As the center of the museum is dedicated to documenting the object of technical ideas and commemorate both the architectural and energy in relation to time and space aesthetics and functionality of a typical power plant. The Center for Science and Technology, rise three "Educational Paths" related to the theme of energy:

ENERGY PATH
TRACK HISTORY OF CIVILIZATION AND SCIENCE
PATH "WORLD MICRO - MACRO WORLD"
Quote:
EC1 east

Objects revitalized East EC-1 will serve as cultural and artistic functions. This will be an open space for artists, young, talented people who want to express by the field of art. The building will have enough space for this, as well as workshop and seminar rooms, as well as guest rooms for teachers, students, artists, together with the required infrastructure. It will also be a space which will benefit other institutions organizing cultural events - education for the residents of Lodz, as well as people coming from out of town.

A place where you will find include:

library
memory lake
planetarium
studies and workshops
gallery
theater sound
headquarters and offices of cultural institutions
seminar and conference rooms
tower

Łódź is often called 'Polish Manchester' thanks to many industrial objects located in here. Did you know that Łódź was the fastest growing city in Europe in late XIX century? Almost as fast, as Chicago.

Some prominent examples of industrial heritage:
Lofts: https://www.google.pl/search?q=manuf...=1424&bih=1062
Manufaktura CH: https://www.google.pl/search?q=manuf...Lamq4AS_v4DADg
Hotel Andels: https://www.google.pl/search?q=manuf...=1424&bih=1062
And many, many more...

One of the biggest, 27 hectares. But It's mostly public areas, museums, fun centers and restaurants - shopping mall is just part of it

These adapted industrial buildings will be so awesome once they are finished with the construction work. Lodz is getting a new serious blood infusion in exciting urban live, right at its center. One day I have to go there and see how it turned out.

Former power station where Tate Modern exist is probably bigger than power station in Łódź, but all New City Center in Łódź contains more exciting buildings. Tate Modern is just modern art gallery, New City Center could be shared areal of fun, art, science, history and also commercial - I hope.
Beside, currently under construction, will rise Central Railway Station (Dworzec Fabryczny) with direct connection to Łódź Airport (about 15 min.), and to Warsaw (about 60 min.). I invite you to visit when we're done building .

Could it be that it is a bit like the Museumsquartier (MQ) in Vienna, just a bit more technical, like the MQ and Museum of applied art (MAK) together?

I love those timelapses, totally mesmerising... And worth subscribing - every other day there's a new one




And here you can see the overview of new underground station, EC1 and tunnel sites:

Some streets look like they're right outta Paris.

That doesn't look that much like Paris but more like 19th century central European to me... but in any case it looks friendly. I guess it would look even grander on a sunny summer day.

Well I was exaggerating a bit but believe me, Lodz has some impressive architecture.

Dexter2, great job documenting Lodz's transformation. We need people like you.

Of course

Łódź along with Wrocław, and Gdańsk is capital of beer in Poland.
We've got legendery shop - Zofmar, you could have bought there large variety of beers in times when there were just 2-3 large brewerys in almost every shop.
Low prices made this shop very popular even in other big cities.
Of course nowyou can buy good beer in almost every shop, that was just a piece of history

Refering directly to your question - we have two restaurant brewerys - Bierhalle Łódź and Grill the Brasil on Traugutta street and in Manufaktura
I recomment Bierhalle and their awesome bock beer.

Don't miss Piwoteka Narodowa - It is not a brewery but pub where you can drink almost every good beer from Poland and a lot from other countries including USA and Canada
This pub hosted almost every premiere of a new beer connected with polish beer revolution. Like it! http://www.facebook.com/PiwotekaNarodowa?ref=ts&fref=ts

Others:
http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Ec...806472?fref=ts
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Peron-...ref=ts&fref=ts

Don't forget to visit those places while visiting our city
