Hotel Cervantes, in the city centre of Montevideo. It was built in 1927 and restored last year. In the first half of the XXth century it was very popular among Uruguayan and Argentinian cultural elite stayed there (including author Jorge Luis Borges and tango singer Carlos Gardel). There's even a story written in 1956 by Argentinian author Julio Cortazar about a room in this hotel which by the time was already decaying.


Before, abandoned and awfully maintained. Used for parking and housing a cheap hotel.

What do you guys think about this one?

Moscow
Храм Рождества Пресвятой Богородицы
Church of the Birth of Mother God

After:


Oh, and before I forget, there are plans to renovate the church (as you can see, not on the pictures) and give the church her domes (and the other parts that are destroyed)!

If they just only demolished that ugly modernist building in the background....

Sadly it seems nothing is undertaken to make that crossing more pedestrian friendly. People are forced underground for almost every street crossing.

I don't think there are threads for the beautiful revitalizations outside of Europe so why not post some here?

What about here?

Urban Renewal and Redevelopment

Actually, this thread should be on that forum, not here.

There is some good work going on in Katowice, Poland.
Use your imagination as to what they used to look like.
