The older version:



It's gonna be very close to the ugly IMHO Hines tower designed by Jahn(160m), even if it's supposed to change its color based on the sunlight i still think it has an ugly form:

Big article on the net version of the biggest polish newspaper "Gazeta Wyborcza":
http://www.bryla.pl/bryla/1,85301,4769905.html

Different architects talk about it(like Kurylowicz, one of the best polish architects), there are alot of new pics and some comments from the company.
There was a proposal of a 300m< building, but Lillium didn't like the project, damn!!!!
Other architects that wanted to design this skyscraper were Norman Foster and Richard Meier.

Man thats good enough, i like it and Zaha Hadid is no amatur. Apparently it was a 450m tower but Lillium said it was not appropriate to the area and so on...i agree 450m would make all other Warsaw towers look like minitures and f*ck up the Skyline

Credit to Polish forumers for this Skyline view

I guess every1's entitled to its own opinion, but i would give one of my kidneys for a 450m skyscraper in Warsaw. I didn't know it was so tall, now that you told you i'm going to close myslef in my room and cry the whole night
I guess it wasn't because of the design or how it would blend with the rest of downtown, but because of how expensive it was.
It would give a good impulse for the whole city, nice promotion for Warsaw and in this world you need to have balls and be just bold brave to be seen.

I'm happy for a 250m anyway.

450m would have been a bit too much, but it could have been 300m high. But it's ok, I'm sure you'll get one of those pretty soon.

Arrrgggh, you're killing me!!!! Damn damn damn.

Well it's clear, however, that people are thinking serious supertalls in Warsaw, so don't be surprised if it happens sooner or later.

Its not the right time for such a tall tower...lets wait till 2009/10 when the current projects start to materialise and dense up the Skyline
