Local branch (Szczecin) of FPW (Forum Polskich Wiezowcow - Polish Skyscrapers Forum) actively supports good renovations. The second edition (winner is chosen yearly) in Szczecin awarded the plaque to this investor.

actualy is not only the paint job. Also they were covered in polystyrene , some surfaces were repaired , the windows were replaced with newer ones, they also arranged parking spaces and new light poles.

Anyway amazing buildings in Poland, i wish they could do the same in Romania , not destroy them for new office or residential buildings.
