GREAT, GREAT, GREAT

Sofia will be 12345678987654321 times more beautiful and classier once they take care of the derelict facades. Lustro effect! It makes me so happy to finally see something done in this respect. As for old buildings getting torn down, we have to ask ourselves: who let them become so ugly, does Sofia deserve to feel ashamed because of certain people's carelessness or lack of funds to maintain their homes properly trimmed?

many people living in old buildings are old. its not their fault that the communists stole the pension fund and now they are living in misery, which no one deserves, especially not the builders of contemporary bulgaria.

and even if it was their fault, tearing down old buildings and replacing them with glass monstrosities won't make sofia look better. these old builings are all that makes sofia nice. sofia, izobshto ne e sred naj-vpechatljavashtit gradove i bez tova. kato si saborim ostanalite 150 stari sgradi, mnogo se samnjavam che turistite shte dojdat da vidjat lozenc i biznes park sofia.

Of course the communists frittered away the Bulgarian pension fund, which was among the largest in Europe if not the whole world and stripped a hardworking generation of their goods. I know mass scale tearing down is not a solution. Then again, as long as the residents of the old buildings sit and do nothing, Sofia will remain the place it is today, namely a beautiful woman whose merits are invisible to the eye as her face is all covered in mud, my friend.

Is renovation happening on a large scale, or a building here and there?

In good neighborhoods (downtown Sofia, for example), there's a building being renovated on every block or every other block. In the prefab areas, they renovate the facades of individual appartments so it looks patchy but fresher. Either way, what's happening now is better than what was happening before when nothing was renovated..

That's good. I remember the last time I was in the center there were many buildings with crumbling facades.

/\/\/\ Actually not. The building next to the front one is the Spanish Cultural Center "Cervantes", but they are not connected.

имаше жълта боя по бялата рамка на прозореца горе... не вярвам впоследствие да доизпипат работата. ще си остане така за 10 години напред

Тази сграда ми навява лоши спомени, но определено изглежда добре с това подновяване

It will be good if we make those renovation like a bigger project that includes a hole street, block or area. Then a more completed vision could be possible and we'll avoid the color discrepancy in neighboring buildings that happens sometimes(often) in those single renovations.
If Graf Ignatiev for example gets refurbished that way it's going to look awesome, for the bigger streets and boulevards the effect will be even better.

I see pictures like this one from whole Europe. And looks like after 5-6 years it will be the same here in Sofia. After all it's not so bad
BTW, the yellow color is the most popular in my opinion. Maybe some day i'll make a compilation of pictures of yellow renovated buildings in Sofia

But this North type of houses are totally different from those in Sofia downtown and historical parts. They're from another period, completely another style and various colors are wanted effect there and original ,too.

I don't want us to turn our center (which unlike many people think actually has really really beautiful and detailed houses) into a Legoland. Old buildings in Sofia are influenced by really different architectural styles.

vycanismajoris, yes there r really a lot of old beautiful houses which are originally painted in yellow , but in the soft shade of the color. And I really like them, but not Big Bird yellow which happens to be popular lately. There's one great building that crosses my mind on Maria Luiza for instance , in the opposite site of Moderen Theatre cinema - with gorgeous white eagles inscribed in the facade.
I also like some nuances of red color it really looks great on some buildings but it's not suitable for any house.

And I like when a building is refurbished in its original or similar colors and when its ornaments stay preserved. Pastel and soft colors, not so sharp fit better for these buildings.
