Absolutely fantastic! I adore the old U.S. Train stations and it's great to see another one being restored to its former glory. Didn't know this one still existed. My dream has always been the rebuilding of the greatest of them all, Penn Station, but I fear it will always remain just a dream. The finest transport terminal ever built anywhere in the world and its destruction to the eternal shame of New York City.

Always sad to see office buildings be turned into residential condominiums. This isn't a revitalization rather, it is a use conversion.

Why is it sad? Office space is becoming more and more obsolete, and it's more economical than demolition and reconstruction.

It's definitely not obsolete - but there are other opportunities for residential intensification. It comes down to owners wishing to make a quick buck and leave a leased building behind.

Are there any other photos of this yellow building in Lodz?


It looks like it was also renovated.

I meant the yellow building in the photo in my comment, but that one is nice too.

Oh, that one. I don't even remember when they refreshed it, but I think it was more than 5 years ago.

Thanks for this post. I was in Montevideo recently and noticed this building. I thought it might have been formally a Bank. It's a world class structure of the highest quality, great to see it being restored and how lucky it did not fall victim to the wreckers in the 60's and 70's when so much was destroyed.

Yes, It`s the best beaux-arts building in Montevideo, in the 90's the Jockey Club went banktrupt and they had to sell the building and auction all of it contents (all of the works of art, silver, books, antique furniture) and since 1997 the building had been left to decay, let's hope they can bring back some of its former glory.

W pubie "Barwiarnia" atmosfera ok, ceny też, ale jak byłem w którąś sobotę ok 21 to były pustki.

Na koniec dwa szybkie nocne strzały
