I think Switzerland should boycott EURO 2012 in Warsaw
it's really pathetic on Kerez's part, even though there were some admitted complications due to nearby metro construction (which were resolved) and land ownership over a portion of lands, which were being resolved. He used this as an excuse for constant delays for years and demands for money when the city asked for changes consistent with building standards. in any case, we'll see what the court will decide. a project like this can be designed in 1 year not 4 years.

Poland technically did not experience a recession and yes, it is growing quite substantially.

Some of those projects look great. How realistic is that they will be built?

I like it! I only wish it was in the city center.


Some real quality projects. Very impressive. Very impressed with the incorporation of green space into the designs .
What pleases me more is that there is a market for this type this type of accommodation.

I would like to see more color incorporated into the new designs in Warsaw. Any chance that will happen in the future? Something more experimental.

Warsaw's building boom kinda reminds me of Berlin, Paris, Frankfurt, Moscow and London. Lots of exciting developments as I see from the images in the forums and other sources.

And it's really amazing to know that Poland, like China and other big emerging economies of the world, miraculously survived the 2008-2009 Global Financial Crisis.

New Apartment buildings on Solidarnosci Avenue (Wola district)
According to investor, the project will resemble the pre-war buildings that once stood in this place.
IMO not the best architecture, but a good "filler" in the street frontage





Same place today:
