Gorgeous design.

Finally! This classy and timeless New Classical highrise architecture is exactly what big Polish cities need more, instead of bland glassy nondescript modernism.

Go Cracow!

That is correct. This will be the tallest in Kraków centered around a strategic crossing/roundabout. The interiors and materials are outstanding.

@k% - is it really $150m for the whole development?

I've heard about 100 mln Euros, but that must be provisional.

April starts tomorrow! Any idea when exactly they're going to start remodelling this beast into the beauty?

Yeah, but I'd think it means just April 2016, by looking at the (ill-placed) apostrophe.

Hope to see construction updates here soon, anyway.

Kind of reminds me of another project that has just started in Lodz (Hampton by Hilton hotel).

The Tower in Lodz looks like Marienturm in Frankfurt.

Will the old skeleton be used in the new building or is it being torn down?
