Yes, the best in bus stops is that this is PPP formula, so the city won't pay for it. It will be completely funded by private companies, which will later have rights to use them for advertisements.

ThatOneGuy - unfortunately outdoor advertising is a big problem in Poland, especially in Warsaw. It's rather unprobable that this building will be renovated - it won't be viable. New owner would probably demolish it and build something new from scratch. It is already listed for sale, but there are rumors that there are some legal problems with the plot and the ability to build something higher there..

It doesn't seem like 2014 will see that many new projects.

We won't see many starts of projects, but remember that there is already lot of office space under construction (Warsaw Spire, Q22, Eurocentrum, Gdański Business Center) so we will definitely have something to look at And it's obvious, that huge amount of office space u/c now results in limited activity in future. I've also mentioned the biggest/the most important projects, that have the highest probability of launching in 2014. There are projects like Liberty Tower, Mennica, Roma Tower, PHN and some others, that are also possible of launching sooner or later, however it's hard to predict when it will happen. And there are also some smaller projects, outside city centre which I didn't mention as they are not so big/not so important. They are for example:

Postępu 14 by HB Reavis - demolition of old warehouses on site already started, nearly finished


Park Rozwoju (1st phase nearly completed, 2nd phase started) + Nowy Mokotów (residential, 1st phase u/c)


Business Garden 2nd phase is also quite likely to start


Revival in residential sector is also forecasted, so we will probably also see some increased activity here, however projects in this sector are not so spectacular as some office towers etc. Also retail sector has a lot of potential, as saturation in Warsaw is quite low. Projects in pipeline are mainly some standard shopping malls/retail parks on the outskirts so they're not mentioned here - nothing special.

I think the shopping malls in Poland are some of the best I've seen. In my opinion, they put some effort into their designs.

Any updates on the revitalization of Plac Defilad (Palace of Culture area for those who don't know). This land is screaming for world class development.

I like large-scale tower projects as much as anyone, but what Warsaw needs is good quality infill and adaptive re-use, which is starting around Norblin and the Powisle Power Plant, and the redesign of main urban squares (Plac Powstancow, Plac Teatralny et al), to give Warsaw back the vitality it was renowned for pre-war. Density, mixed use and quality are key here.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

Plac Teatralny needs to do away with that parking lot.

Plac Powstancow or Napoleon plac was stunning pre war, beautiful green areas and the Central Post office where now stands that awful black PKO building

Yea, there is some "movement" regarding this area, city has sold some small plots to the owner of a bigger adjacent plots recently. There are some rumours that some big players are interested, but I think that with current pipeline, even if someone would be really interested in developing some project there we would still have to wait some time for it.

I heard in the past that there were some ownership claims on the land surrounding the palace? Is that still going on, or has it been resolved/decided?

Most if not all land claims on site of future museum of modern art have been settled along with a few other pockets on the west side of palace that have now been sold.
