Fantastic renovation. The Polish are experts at renovating their buildings...

Looks incredible, a new city's signature for sure. There is nothing like it anywhere in Poland or central and eastern Europe. Even whole Europe maybe?
I don't know, but I just love the style of those buildings!

So this EC1 will be a technology museum? Cool. This is will be a real asset for the city.

Yes, the western part will be the Centre of Science and Technology, while in the eastern part a Centre of Film Art is planned. There is also a smaller part of the former power plant, called EC1 South-East, which is factory and museum of Se-ma-for, an animation studio which won two Oscars (for Tango by Zbigniew Rybczyński in 1982 and Peter and the Wolf by Suzie Templeton and Marek Skrobecki in 2008). This part wil be also renovated in the forthcoming years.

Cool. Sounds a bit like the Museumsquarter concept as realized in Vienna, adapted to the location and the features of Lodz, with a focus on technology. Are there already concrete plans about the other parcels of that larger city centre project area? There is this Libeskind building, but what about the rest? Still no vizualizations or informations available? What is the time frame for the development area again?

Masterplan is still being finished. Most of the parcels will be sold to private investors for housing and business mostly. But details are still unknown.

Oh, I see. So it will take many more years until the area looks anything close to being finished. I had the impressio they were already further in their planning because the station is already under construction and because of projects like the EC1.

Łódź is still going through transformation problems. City is not as attractive as Wrocław, Gdańsk, Kraków or Poznań (not to mention Warszawa) and very neglected. This is generally why it is impossible for us to bring huge investor to develop whole area like you can see in Asian cities - it would simply stay empty.
This has to be economical process of growing city when space needed. Parcel by parcel and block by block

I visited Lodz for the first time this past summer and after visiting most other large Polish cities and having been forewarned about the neglected state of Lodz, we were pleasantly surprised by the city. Neglected it was, but so many original beautiful tenement houses that of course need facelifts, a city virtually un touched by war and so many converted old factories. The one thing Lodz lacks and that EC1 and new train station will give it is a centre. Every city in Poland has a centre of some kind such as a rynek, CBD or other such hub. Poitrkowska is tunning but its only one very long street that could serve as another major node but not as a centre or cbd. I think once the train station nears completion other development will follow very quickly....the potential is huge.

I have never been there, maybe I'll wait for some of the development to be realized. That EC1 would be a nice place to visit for sure.

There is certainly a lot of potential.

Agree. I visited it last year as well, the city itself is amazing, a lot of beautiful buildings, I didn't know what to look at But yes, Łódź is also probably the most neglected city in Poland, which is a shame. But I'm pretty sure it will get better and one day it will become a tourists destination
