A project for a 200m skyscraper has been approved by the Regional Directorate of Environment. The Tower would be located on the Vistula riverside (vis a vis the National Stadium).

The Chmielna St. revitalization looks great.

Property player Orco returns from crisis

December 10, 2010



A plan to build Warsaw’s tallest apartment building is rising from the dead - marking its return with a sound and light show on Friday night, to enliven the city’s gloomy downtown.

Zlota 44 - a 190m tower, designed by celebrity, Polish-born architect Daniel Libeskind - has sat unfinished for two years, after property developer Orco ran into trouble during the financial crisis. Now Orco says the financing is in place, along with a new construction permit. That should mean the building can grow to its planned 55 stories, from its current 18, providing evidence of the resurgence in the Polish property market.

Orco was one of the highest profile victims of the economic crisis and the real estate crash in central Europe, and it had to seek protection from creditors in a French court. Back in Warsaw, its problems were compounded when a local court revoked the building permit for Zlota 44, following complaints from neighbours.

“We look a lot better than we did two years ago,” Jean-François Ott (pictured right, with Libeskind) tells beyondbrics. Earlier this year, Orco rescheduled about €400m in bonds until 2020 and now has a more manageable cashflow. Ott says that, once completed, Zlota 44 will earn Orco €200m ($265m).

The completion of the project will also come as a relief to the investors who have put money down for 88 of the tower’s 251 luxury flats.

Ott is also selling the Sky Office Building in Düsseldorf for as much as €140m, as part of the company’s general retreat from secondary cities to focus on capitals like Berlin, Warsaw, Prague and Budapest.

Orco, which is based in Luxembourg, hopes to sell about €300m in property next year, up from €200m this year and Ott is planning to double the company’s rental income to €200m over the next four years.

Ott, who faced a rebellion from minority shareholders last year, still owns about 2 per cent of the company, with a further 10 per cent in warrants, and says he does not sense any risk to his control of the developer he founded in 1991.

Doea anyone knows what is the current status of 'business garden' project in Warsaw?

The construction was suppose to be started in April 2010 however there was no progress since then. As far as I know Cushman already found some tenants, should we expect the project to enter construction phase in q2 2011?
