Towering  prospects for pl. Zawiszy
One of the options is for three towers of up to 150m to be built

POLAND A concept has been published for the transformation of the area around pl. Zawiszy in Warsaw.

The concept, which was commissioned by the city’s architecture and spatial planning department, involves the construction of a number of high-rise buildings, several smaller buildings and the redevelopment of the transport system.

The document contains several different possible plans. One of the options is the construction of a complex of buildings, including up to 160m in height on the V-shaped area between ul. Grójecka and Al. Jerozolimskie. This project would be developed by Ghelamco. Other options involve buildings of 120m or 180m in height. Site development conditions were issued in 2008 for a 130m tower, a perimeter of 113m and a total of ​​44,100 sqm of space, which would make up app. 50 pct of the area of ​​this complex.

Ghelamco’s 160m skyscraper, which has been designed by Jems Architekci. The 98,500 sqm building would have a triangular shape and a four-level base sloping towards the street. A digital shadow analysis has already been carried out confirming that the building would not have a negative impact on the exposure to sunlight of neighbouring residential buildings.

A pavilion is also planned on the edge of the area in the form of a 5m rotunda looking down the viewing axis of ul. Grójecka.

The improvements to the transport system include straightening ul. Grójecka. Two or possibly three high-rise buildings of up to 150m are also to be constructed on the site of ​​the former Dworzec Główny municipal train station, including the area over the rail track.

According to the architectural and planning department, the form and scale of the skyscraper on the V-shaped site would depend on the height of the buildings on the railway station.
