UBS plans 188-meter Warsaw skyscraper

22nd November 2011
Bookmark and Share


Swiss financial services firm UBS has decided to have its 103-meter tall Ilmet building knocked down and replaced with a new 188-meter tower. UBS says that the Ilmet building, located at Rondo ONZ in Warsaw's Wola district, is neither tall or modern enough.

Danish company Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects designed the new structure. A company representative declined to reveal the cost of the investment.

The new, 60,000 sqm high-rise building is to stand out as a modern landmark “in the Warsaw skyline while at the same time capturing the full potential of the outstanding historic location,” John Lassen, a founding partner of Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects, said in a statement.

The new building will comprise three connected but individually stepped rectangular volumes, whose heights will increase the further east they are positioned. The structure will also feature an open lobby that will allow people to pass into and through the building, connecting the plaza and park in front of the structure with the courtyards of the historical tenement houses to its south.

According to the architect's website, the building's construction is to take place between 2012 and 2016.

Pity they want to demolish Ilmet though. I liked this building. One of best looking Warsaw skyscrapers IMO, even if a bit small. There are several other towers I'd like to see demolished more than it.

From Eurobuild magazine:

Quote:
Another new office building is coming to the very center of Warsaw! Well, almost. A Polish-based developer is looking to deliver an office project in the heart of the city. Few prestigious locations are being taken under consideration with Polna 40 being one of them. Warsaw- based architects of the RE design practice have been commissioned to work on the project. Here is their vision for the site on Polna Street. The proposed building will have seven floors, offering about 10,000 sqm of office space. The green garden on the top floor will be boasting a seasonal restaurant and terraces, available for the wide public. On the ground floor and on the first underground floor there will be commercial areas. In total shops and commercial spaces will take more than 4,000 sqm. Another possible location for the project is Mokotowska Street. Sounds promising!

It's nice to see that Warsaw continues to grow. My only hope, after visiting Warsaw recently in May 2011, is that the public realm is substantially improved. I think it would help the otherwise "good bones" in the Srodmiescie area ... i.e. implement a strategy for the stretch between Marszalkowska, Jasna etc. So much potential and such a unique mix of socialist-realism, modernism, po-mo and historic structures
