I don't think it's true that Poland is "closer to the West today" than it was before WW2. I feel that Poland is finally normalising and freeing itself from the cancer of Russian occupation and the corrupt networks and bad habits that came with it.

Wilanow district is a very ''New age'' district in Warsaw, with all its modern architecture, new age shops and young population it gives a very ''western'' vibe. The tempel of divine providence is a kind of parallel, showing that even though Poland is rapidly moving towards the west, taking in all its culture and habits, even in districts as ''New age'' and ''Western'' as Wilanow, there is still a place for old school polish culture and religion. Of course, with architecture adapted to the district.

I'm a big fan of it and even though it is a very heated subject in Poland (Alot of donations from the government) i hope to see it finished and ready to use real soon.

Lets leave it at that.

I don't care if Poland is western as long as its free with a functioning, transparent and honest government dedicated to improving the lives of its people instead making rich corporations and their buddies richer. Frankly I wouldn't mind if Poland oriented a little east even towards Russia, sadly a healthy relationship with the current leader there is not possible, but down the road when those nations move away from dictatorship and kleptocracy (and the west is guilty of this too to a great degree) towards human rights and dignity I would love to see Poland evolve in a natural way and not always sucking up to the west or rather imitating it, and seeing its youth and energy dispersed there, it's degrading, undignified and destructive as far as it has gone I think.

JM Tower is a fairly recent building. The street in the picture is Grzybowska street. JM Tower is mixed use and the Bank tower is most likely office building.
The third tower is Hilton hotel.

Wola seen a lot of development in the last decade or so but a lot of it is pretty chaotic and there are still some huge empty spaces...

A lot of changes on the right bank of the Vistula river coming soon thanks to a huge investment on Grochowska 272 where European Music Centre Sinfonia Varsovia will be built. This great orchestra will finally have its own hall, the City of Warsaw declared 279.7 million zł for it. Do you like the project of Austrian architect Thomas Pucher?
