Warsaw

Post War Modernism and the Construction of New Communities
Although it is trendy now to lament the loss of so much of the pre-war heritage buildings and historic fabric of European cities, especially Warsaw and Dresden, let us suspend our biases for a moment and consider the possibility that post-war citizens of these cities may have actually welcomed these new light, spacious buildings set in lush green parks fitted out with all the modern amenities including indoor plumbing, children's playgrounds, parking lots and local shopping and service centres.
Pre-war Warsaw was very densely populated in most parts, ancient buildings were quite squalid and delapidated in the old town while grand upscale buildings built along newly laid out beaux-arts style circles in Srodmiescie Poludniowe (Downtown South), Ochota and Mokotow were home to the bourgeoisie and their servants. Warsaw's Jews were integrated into the fabric of pre-war Polish Warsaw, but traditional Jewish areas teemed with life along Prozna and Nalewski Streets, life for the average Pole, whatever religion, was hard.
Although the imposition of communism after the war was welcomed by no one, the righting of injustices and class disparities was reflected in the modern housing estates that began to pop up like mushrooms after the rain everywhere gaps in the urban fabric due to destruction would allow and where infrastructure existed. Post-war planners were already mindful of the costs of infrastructure (something North Americans are just starting to learn about), so densities were hight, but tall buildings allowed planners to provide large green areas. The amount of green space in post war Warsaw was 40% more the pre-war Warsaw and there were 100,000 street trees by 1962 versus 39,000 in 1939.
A post war population boom and catastrophic war-time destruction forced planners to readily adopt the international style, modernism and new technologies of construction of new housing estates. Not all of it was bad, for most people after the war these clean bright spacious new communities were a breath of fresh air, so in the following days I will post photos of some the typical and exceptional modern neighbourhoods of Warsaw.

It's Muranów district from the '50 and yes I guess it's quite famous
because it was build at the place of the Warsaw Ghetto:

Well, there where built in Poland in the '50's (I'm not shoure that in Warsaw) some 3-5 floors (storyes) blocks that had shops on the ground-floor and every ground-floor had arches. I've read about it sometimes ago, but I forgot the name of the project.
I think these might be the ones (or unleass they are resemblig with the one that I'm talking about):

Well there were many big projects in Poland at that time and arches were quite popular in socrealist architecture so your description might fit many places. Pictures you used are from two different parts of Warsaw, first is from Muranów but the rest would be from MDM. Also old center of Nowa Huta (now district of Kraków) might be an option because it was rather famous:
