Semi pedestrian? So... just a normal street then.
and youre not giving any "before" pictures... The whole thread is about comparing before and after.

I don't remember if this comparison was here before. Łódź, 6 Sierpnia street:

-before war
-last year
-after modernization



This is city centre of course

My bad then, but i still think its kind of pointless to show it without before pictures :P

Although I see comparisons before/after on the first page already.

Oh, sorry, Ive read it as "I don't remember if THOSE comparisonS were here before" and thought it was for me and you wasn't sure if this thread was meant to be about comparing before and after photos or not, nvm

I have no idea, but by looking at the building size it might accommodate around 100 people.

Nice mosque renovation. I guess they had to completely reconstruct it?

Thanks, and I've also wondered how long does a normal housing building take to restore?

Maybe dexter2 can give a more detailed answer, since there is a lot of thorough renovation in Lodz? I can't really say for sure. Some I know take up to a year, others are less.

This photo demonstrates what terrible shape many Romanian buildings are in. The restored yellow building is part of the building to the left.

I'd say from 3-4 months up to 2 years. It all depends on shape of the building, how deep is the restoration (just facade or maybe whole building with interiors) and of course scale of the buildings. It's easier to restore small, simple, poor social building than huge palace with lots of details, wall paintings, etc.

For example deep restoration of those two buildings in Łódź (Fischers kamienica and palace) begun couple of months ago, but It'll propably will not be finished this year

Landschaftspark Duisburg-Nord, Duisberg, Germany
Completely re-uses an old industrial plant while preserving the character and industrial heritage of the area, and making it walkable.










Unfortunately I have no 'before' photos but you can imagine how it must have looked.
