WAR­SAW WON­DER

The Jewish Chronicle - - CLASSIFIED -

Europe’s new­est lux­ury tower is Zlota 44 in cen­tral War­saw, the lat­est work by Pol­ish-Amer­i­can Daniel Libe­skind, ar­chi­tect of the Jewish Mu­seum in Berlin, the Im­pe­rial War Mu­seum North in Manch­ester and the re­con­struc­tion of the World Trade Cen­ter site.

The 52-storey tower pro­vides 287 apart­ments and pen­t­houses with busi­ness fa­cil­i­ties, concierge and park­ing; the largest pri­vate swim­ming pool in Poland; a gym and spa; cin­ema; golf sim­u­la­tor; chil­dren’s play­room and tem­per­a­ture-con­trolled wine stor­age for up to 10,000 bot­tles. Michal Skot­nicki of lo­cal de­vel­oper BBI es­ti­mates that 70 per cent of sales will be to do­mes­tic buy­ers and that over­seas pur­chasers will in­clude many Pol­ish ex­pats.

Libe­skind, who was born in Lodz and still speaks flu­ent Pol­ish, says: “I wanted to cap­ture both the War­saw of the past and the fu­ture in one spe­cific shape, as well as give a sense of the free­dom and af­fir­ma­tion of ev­ery­day life to­day.”

Sav­ills is ask­ing from £242,000 to £1.9 mil­lion for apart­ments; pen­t­houses start at £7 mil­lion.
