Zlota44 is going to the sexiest new tower to be built in Warsaw despite the fact that it's not the tallest. Love Lilium and Kulczyk but Zlota44 has the best design.

Tower to Rise in Warsaw, Said E.U.'s Tallest
April 23, 2008
By: Thomas Peretti, Contributing Correspondent

The B.S.R. Group has announced plans to build the tallest tower in the European Union in Warsaw, Poland.

Initial plans for the Lilium Tower, designed by architect Zaha Hadid, call for the building to be approximately 800 feet tall, comprised of 70 stories. Plans for the building call for half the units to be residential and the other half to be condominium hotel units. Restaurants and retail units will make up the ground floor of the building and below.

The Lilium Tower, upon its completion, will become the European Union’s largest structure, The B.S.R. Groups’ chairman Kalman Sufrin, noted in a release. The E.U.’s current tallest building is the Commerzbank Tower, a 56-story building completed in 1997.

The project has an initial cost projection of $500 million. The tower will be made up of 900 to 2,000 square foot units, with about 1 million total square feet. Construction on the project is scheduled to begin in 2009, with completion expected in 2012.

The B.S.R. Group is a global development firm specializing in creating urban developments globally. It currently is in the process of building nearly 25 such projects, including ONE Lifestyles Condominiums Las Vegas. The B.S.R. Group has had success in Poland before, having built 2,100 apartments in the Osiedle Europejskie, a neighborhood in Krakow, for which B.S.R. was named an Outstanding Entrepreneur of Krakow by the Krakow Builder’s Association.

Various sources mention that the winning design originally hit a dizzying height of 450 metres but Lillium are reported as saying that it would be to high and out of context with the surrounding area.

The project is going to be approved soon. It will become the first approved 250+ m (to roof) skyscraper in Poland. Zaha Hadid visited Warsaw two days ago: (Zaha Hadid and the president of Warsaw, Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz):

Strat u/c 2009,end :2012 or 2013Warsaw's blossoming skyline could soon have a new addition to its funky looking skyscraper family.

Lillium, owners of the Lim Centre in Warsaw perhaps better known as the Marriott recently asked some of the best known architects in the world to draw up plans for a 200 metre tall tower to be sited near the Marriott.

Inviting esteemed architects such as Sir Norman Foster, Richard Meier and Anthony Bechu to compete in a metaphorical fight to the death, they eventually settled on a design submitted by Zaha Hadid who was the first woman ever to win the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize back in 2004.

Appearing like an elongated juicer or something mildly exotic and exciting from the curtained off section of Ann Summers, the tower will have a glass façade and as far as the Warsaw skyline is concerned a distinctive and unique shape.

The tower will have three rounded sections all rising to slightly different heights to create what appears to be a ripple at the towers peak. Heavily balconied, the tower will play host to hotel space, residential apartments and available for rent holiday apartments.

Although the original specification given by Lillium for the tower was 200 metres the final design, if the now approved design remains unchanged it will reach a lofty 257 metres making it the second tallest skyscraper in the city.

Various sources mention that the winning design originally hit a dizzying height of 450 metres but Lillium are reported as saying that it would be to high and out of context with the surrounding area.

With no definite start date released as present its likely many other of the planned projects for the city will be springing fourth like giant daisies by the time this one breaks ground.

Zaha Hadid unveils plan for Warsaw skyscraper


WARSAW (AFP) - Acclaimed Anglo-Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid unveiled plans Wednesday to build a 240-meter (790-foot) high residential skyscraper in the heart of the Polish capital Warsaw.



"We're very excited by this project," Hadid, 57, told reporters during a joint press conference with Warsaw Mayor Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz.

"It's a great opportunity really to be able to add to the skyline of the city," Hadid said.

Sleek in form and covered in glass, the skyscraper boasts a design based on a fleur de lys motif. With a total floor space of 101,205 square meters (1.1 million square feet), it will house apartments, a condominium hotel as well as commercial and recreation facilities.

Lilium Tower will face Warsaw's landmark Palace of Culture, a Stalinist-era specimen of socialist-realist architecture.

Investor Lilium Polska aims to complete the project by 2012, but has as yet to receive all the necessary planning permits.

Hadid is the latest in a string of top-name architects bringing their projects to Warsaw.

Last week construction began on a landmark futuristic residential skyscraper designed by acclaimed US architect Daniel Libeskind, while British architect Norman Foster is the author of the Metropolitan, a commercial centre adjacent to the National Opera in Warsaw.

Another Warsaw Skyscraper

Compiled by LAWRENCE VAN GELDER
Published: May 23, 2008
Zaha Hadid will become the latest star architect to put her imprint on Warsaw. On Wednesday in the Polish capital she displayed her design, below, for a 790-foot residential skyscraper to be built in the heart of the city, Agence France-Presse reported. Called Lilium Tower, the sleek, glass-covered building, with floor space of 1.1 million square feet has a fleur-de-lis motif and is to house apartments, a condominium hotel and commercial and recreational facilities on a site facing the city’s Palace of Culture. Some planning permits are still needed; completion is expected in 2012. Last week, construction began on a futuristic residential skyscraper designed by Daniel Libeskind, and Norman Foster has designed a commercial center adjacent to the National Opera.

Really, really outstanding.. Europe's ugliest capital will sure benefit visually from having that thing built. And when it's officially dubbed '*****', remember who did it first!

*****? hardly. i think this is actually an instance of defying the '*****' label. for zaha, i also think this is a restrained, but really successful tower. i sure hope this gets built out of all the proposals circulating in this burgeoning business center.

Well, the Palace of Culture and Science used to be referred to as 'patyk' (stick) by locals as far as I remember.
Let's wait and see how Varsovians deal with nicknaming this one. While it isn't as straight *****-ish as Torre Agbar (called 'El Supositori' by Catalans), I will be surprised if it doesn't get a bunch of raw phallic references
