The tower is not that bad. 220m is a great height.

But one thought. As long as the old skyscraper is under demolition, the 220m tower is not u/c yet. The thread titel is missleading

Wrocław was founded before 1000 by Wratislaw I, who was Czech duke.

From about 990- to 1335, Kingdom of Poland
1335- 1741, Kingdom of Bohemia (next with Kingdom of Bohemia incorporated to Habsburg empire)
1741-1945, Kingdom of Prussia
1945- today, again Polish

Wroclaw is one from the most beautiful and the most quickly developing Polish cities.

Well, actaully the construction works in broad meaning (site preparation, excavations) started already a few months ago on the grounds surrounding Poltegor (the building which is being demolished) so it is fair to say Sky Tower is U/C. Poltegor occupies just, say, one fourth of the area which will be occupied by the Sky Tower complex.

I have to admit, it is a lot better now. I have seen both names on departure gates at Munich as well recently.

I think the exact opposite. Cities need to reestablish proper urban planning before they build high just for the sake of it. Judging by the air photo, Wroclaw does not have proper urban planning. As with most old European cities, I bet only the city center is nice.

I have to agree with you there. Wroclaw does not really need a 200+ tower in the middle of it. It is going to look a bit Taipei 101 (although on a slightly different scale ). When completed it will be one of the tallest towers in Poland. I think only the Palace of Science and Culture (which is mostly spire) will top it. It also will be the tallest residential in Europe (unless you want to include Russia... but lets not start that debate off).

Well, how can you judge urban planning of the whole city from just one shot of one area? The reality is more complex....
The area where Sky Tower is being built was completely destroyed during the last weeks of WW2, so it became "a playground" for communist times urban planners. Apart from the districts which were completyely ruined by war and then badly planned in communist era, there is much much more of "nice" areas in Wroclaw than just city center.

Seems like the recent storms have turned the site into a bit of a swimming pool
