Sweet looking tower, but Im weary of these shiny renders - finished product rarely looks like that.

, No way, even if you exclude Moscow, Warsaw will probably never be the best in Europe. Still, I love how new investments boost up the city to a next level!

Besides that cluster Moscow is building now, what else do they have planned for the future?

And why not? It's certainly getting better and better, and I don't see any reason why it won't continue. Unlike many large European cities, Warsaw has embraced tall buildings, so it could easily be a top skyline...by European standards, anyway.

Because Warsaw is a relatively small city compared to other European cities, like London or Paris. Many Eurpean cities have more or less embraced tall buildings, in fact, in the past 5 years many skyscrapers have gone up, even in non-alpha cities like Vienna and Milan. Warsaw's skyline is stil pretty impressive and It surely will keep growing rapidly in the coming 10 years. Unfortunatly, the quality of the average skyscaper in Warsaw is not that great imo, but things are starting tot improve with projects like Zlota44 and future projects like the UBS tower. So, long story short, yes Warsaw has a pretty nice skyline and it will be interesting to see both the skyline's quality and the quantity grow, but Warsaw is not on the same level as the biggest cities in Europe. This is my personal opinion, but it is based on browsing ssc for years, so I'm probably not the only one who thinks about this matter this way

Cheers guys

You make it sound like Zlota44 is the first nice skyscraper in Warsaw. Simply not true.

My favorites are:




All four on the right are pretty great quality.


Not to mention this icon. It's "sister" in Moscow is way fatter. Warsaw's is more slender.

How many skyscrapers are actually planned in Warsaw right now?
It will take a long time for Warsaw to catch up with Londyn or Paryż.
Poland's economy is growing fast-ish, but London's economy is growing faster.
I'd love to see a taller, better Warszawa, but I can't see it ever having a better skyline than London.

London: one of the worlds largest cities and a world financial hub. Shouldn't they have a larger skyline since on this site a big skyline is a measurement of your manhood?





Warsaw: 2.7 million metro population in a formerly poor nation, now up and comer. A great place to invest in central/eastern Europe.








I think people need to take a closer look at Warsaw's skyline.
Getting to Paris' cluster will take lots of time but then again I don't know how many future projects they have planned. Isn't all of western Europe still in recession? How can they afford to build and build like this?

Warsaw might be small compared to Paris and London, but it's certainly not a small European city.

I've been to London, HK, LA, NY, Chitown, Frankfurt and Warsaw :] let me tell ya Warsaw is pretty small when compared to giants like that but its not small compared to any other city for that matter. But how can ya compare 17mln City like London to barely 3mln Warsaw. lol. Can't be done guys. Its a different league.

That said Warsaw is really booming right now and it sort of is that save heaven in Europe right now. Lots of folks are jealous that we get so much going on but lets face it, Warsaw needs it. There are plenty of areas that need to be taken care of.
I think Warsaw in 10 years once WS, UBS, echo tower and once ONZ roundabaout will be finished downtown Warsaw will start to impress a lot of people and I mean a lot

But skyscrapers isn't everything, Warsaw needs to clean up the streets, new bus stops, stuff like that.

No official info on the spires, but I think it's just a matter of a render. They still refer to the tower as 220 m high in all releseas, and if they cut the spires it would be only 180 m high.

I'm not the fan of the one on the far right (Twarda Tower). It looks not so bad at this photo, but in reality it's more ugly. But the good news is that its new owner, Europa Capital, plans to refurbish it, as main tenant (Orange) is moving out so they want to adjust the building to modern office standards.

Big update:
Karolkowa Business Park - project was on hold for some time, but has restarted few months ago.

Zlota44 is the first skyscraper in Warsaw which I really love, and I'm not sure about Cosmopolitan Twarda yet, but I appriciate it's slender form. The skyscrapers you posted do not impress me in any way (except for the palace). Which doesn't mean I hate them or something, but I think Warsaw really needs these new towers you posted in order to bring some architectual quality in to the 'new' part of Warsaw Whether you like a building or not is obviously very subjective, but to be a bit more specific, I don't like the former Daewo tower because of the ugly grey-ish part on top and I'm not too fond of the InterContinental either. The big gap is cool, but I really hate it's back end.

Thanks for the info regarding Warsaw Spire. We'll see how it works out. I'm a bit afraid it's gonna look tacky with these 40m spires on it.
