Clerks cut the building up to 170 m. Still this year (probably with autumn) construction of the WGŻ tower block will begin.

Are the above renders showing this height reduction? I think it actually works better being of a similiar height to the tower nextdoor.

It actually is called Jewish District Tower and it does not have any financing and it will not start for some time. The tower under construction in the pic is the Hines' Twarda Tower. Please correct, thanks.

What is the point in this tower and such a name? there are less than 3000 Jews left in Poland as of today and this whole business with the name sounds as a mix of ridiculous and crazy

Its going to be built on top of a historical synagogue, so its on land belonging to jews. Its going to have a jewish community centre and a new synagogue in it also the correct translation would be Jewish comune tower



as you can see

That cladding on the render looks celestial. What does the Jewish have to do with this building. Will it be religious in nature at all?

The tower meant to be used as a "kosher hotel" and the actual (though probably temporary) name for the tower is Jewish Community Tower (in Polish: Wieżowiec Gminy Żydowskiej) and not "Poland's Jewish Leaders Tower" or "Jewish District Tower" (in Polish one of the meanings for the word "district" is the same word as "community" (gmina) so formally it can mean both commune/community or territory of its activity/administration).

The rumours say they will start late this year, but we cannot be sure of anything. At least they had been assured that the new master plan for that district allows 170m tall tower there.

It takes quite some time, but hopefully it will get built.

A very cheap knock off of Pearl River Tower.

I hope this gets a redesign.
