Stunning building, good to see its on track for approval.

With the likes of Zaha, Libeskind, SOM, Foster etc shaping the Warsaw skyline there is a real nice refined quality to the buildings proposed.

And 257m is nothing to sneeze at, would have loved to have seen the 450m version.

Why they cut 15m?

I mean great building, but that 15m cut is just plain annoying.

The authorities don't want this building to dominate the surroundings. So they have decided to cut 15m Odd decision if you ask me.

Yes, that is decidedly loco.

Jeez, those planners just had to make it look like they were doing something to earn their pay packets didn't they.

There is an interview in German newspaper with an architect that works in Zaha Hadid office... and what we know is that the tower will be 260m tall and the construction starts in 2009... we will see...

What is the lower western wing of the Centrum LIM Building currently used for? If the wing is demolished, the Marriott Hotel that is housed in the building would lose any significant functions that were housed in that wing.

It is a fantastic design, and even though i don't like Hadid's other projects so much, I have to say this is definitely one , if not the best of her best designs yet.
What I'm not sure about is the height, is it 257 m, 260 m, or 242 m how Lucky Luke claimed? And on SSP , I found the information that it will be 235m high (http://skyscraperpage.com/cities/?buildingID=69531) , so which one is the right height now?

I don't know what kind of sextoys Zaha uses but this must be here faforite. I like some of Zaha's work but mostley when thy are on a small scale or when she designs the building with a lage surounding. both of witch this project doesn't have. so it become's a sextoy next to a building it doesn't have any conection with. shame.

just one more thing. I think this building is getting build so Poland can say hey look we aren’t seconds class Europeans we have a Zaha. just like a new money millionaire buys a Picasso or a Damien Hirst to say hay look i have money, now I’m one of you. But they forget that old money bought the Picasso’s when he was upcoming. the real world city's builded a Zaha when she was new, the love finding new art & architecture. second hand city's and millionaires buy paintings and architecture for to much money, put it on places where it doesn’t belong and are never recognized as a thru member of the elite.
Oh and than one last thing to prove that I’m right, look at Roman Abramovich. He has all the money in the world but isn’t a thru elite. Why else do you need over 4 supper yachts an need a 5th (the longest in the world ) that’s to show look I’m really rich can I please see me as one of yours. No you are not and never will be.
