Changes around the corner

Luxembourg-based ORCO company may start a new trend in Warsaw—based on purchasing existing buildings only to demolish them and build new ones in their place. Until now, investors and developers active in the Polish capital have primarily built their facilities on vacant lots. In promoting its investment opportunities, Warsaw has offered a large number of vacant lots, even in the central districts of the city. But the number of such lots is shrinking, especially in the center.

ORCO bought the City Center, constructed in 1991, for zl.41.5 million and plans to replace it with a 192-meter residential high-rise with 340 high-standard apartments. This will be the tallest residential building in Warsaw. The company has commissioned the design from international architect Daniel Libeskind, his first design for a Polish city. ORCO’s decision was determined by the location. The project will be built in a central point of the city, next to the Złote Tarasy retail-culture-entertainment center—which the investor, ING Real Estate, plans to open next year—and the Rondo 1 office building soon to be completed by Hochtief Project Development.
Not far from the ORCO project, another high-rise is planned: an apartment building designed by leading Polish architect Stefan Kuryłowicz, with Polish-American Shalom Foundation acting as developer. Both buildings will be erected in the vicinity of Defilad Square, with its still-undeveloped areas around the Palace of Culture and Science. City authorities have intended to develop this square for years, but with little success. Now the initiative by private investors may finally mobilize public decision makers and work will actually get under way on Defilad Square. The planned project involves big-city architecture with service, office, cultural and tourist functions. The facilities would be built for money provided by private investors and from local government funds.

There is every indication that the contemporary Art Museum will be the first project to be created; an architectural competition for the preparation of a design for the project will be announced soon. (..)

It is one of my favourite proposals in the entire world! Most other architects don't have the same finesse when coming up with unusual shapes, and the proposed buildings look like ridiculous household objects. This is sculptural, not kitch.

Hell, same here.

I hate architects don't want scrapers in their cities.

I hope it will get permission as soon as possible, it is one of the most artistic towers around.
