Nuclear power plant in the middle of the residential neighbourhood, isn't it harmful?

Oh my g-d, could you guys stop giving a shit about comparing the construction to an reactor? I know this project is really controversial and for some looks a little bit odd, but only first hundred posts including those jokes were cool, fun and everyone was cachinnating and you have to know guys what does 'enough' mean.

I think this will be one of the greatest churches in Europe and I absolutely love the design.

I'm not original saying it's simply disgusting design but do we really need that big church to pray? Actually we don't even need church to do so.

You should be proud of your Catholic heritage!!!!! It's about prestige!!
In other European cities they are building mosques to accomodate their Muslims invaders.
Sleep on that!!

I've seen some pics of the interior and must say it's very impressive. This is more than a church though, it's a cultural centre that extols Poland's cultural virtues. Yes, Poland does build lots of churches, but it's better than all the casinos they build in Canada.

Don't bring religious debate or critique into this. Pundits are not welcome, especially when it comes to people's beliefs.

Złota 44 - on hold
Kulczyk Tower - only parcel was bought
Jewish Tower - no investor
Lilium - parcel bought and architectural permission (WZ) is granted, still no building permission
Modlin Airport - building permission is granted and construction tenders were announced
