Some shots of Złota 44 from yesterday.
They are up to the eighth floor level and things are starting to get weird with a large cantilevered lump hanging out the back end.
This lump is joined by a rather strangely angled beam snaking across the eighth floor-plate (no photo). Up ’till now the construction has just been a stack of regularly shaped rectangular pancakes one on top of the other so it’s nice to see something new coming along.
I wondered some time ago about whether the developer can keep going with this project. Lets face it, the signs are not good – funding is difficult and the prices of super-luxury apartments have taken a nose-dive so the economics for the project must look very different now to when it was dreamt up and funded originally. Anyway, all I can say is that for the first time this week I’ve had two other people suggesting the same thing, but in stronger terms.
If it is going to stop, and I really don’t want it to, it would be great if they could stop soon so as not to leave us with a view onto an empty concrete shell for [period of time].
