they wanted to make it 140m but did not get the relevant permisions due to the airport authorities objecting to the height of the tower, they had to limit it to 105m...Personaly i think it is a bit to massive

I agree. way too overwhelming (especially in pic 1).

looks like every big polish city is trying to polish their image with star architects. I just wish it wasn't always libeskid.

Wechta S.A. wanted to make it 148m. Even Libeskind made two projects.

Not only Libeskind projects in Poland. For example Zaha Hadid projects for Warsaw or Frank Gherry for Łdź. I am not sure but I think the first star of architecture who project in Poland was sir Norman Foster.

i like this tower, i think it has an interesting and prominent design. The facade desin is very interesting IMO with the diagonal window rows, its unconvential and different from typical glass facades, but still looks very modern and fitting.
This building will definetily be a great addition to Poznan's skyline, which looks very good on Boogie's pic, as well as to new residential highrises in Europe .
Its fascinating for me to see how many new highrises are being built in Poland , especially if compared to Germany, it seems that almost all major cities in Poland are getting new highrises, and many of them are residential which is even better IMO.
