Comparing that picture with a modern map there seems to be a lot left to recontruct on land which yet hasn't been claimed by other buildings. Atleast modern Gdansk seems to have more parks and vacant lots, are there any initiatives to do so? The grit in your photo is mouthwatering.

If I'm correct this grid plan dates back to the 15th-16th century (map of Gdansk from ca.1601 below)...

Well, not all - because pre-war inhabitants continued to form over 1/10 of its post-war population.

Another significant portion of the population were people who came not from somewhere far away, but from the immediate vicinity of Danzig, including both areas which belonged to Germany before WW2, and pre-1939 Polish parts of Pomerelia.

In total almost 1/3 of the population (figures in Purple colour below) = people from Danzig and areas of Pomerelia around the city.
