It has been a while since we looked at how Złota 44 is progressing.
I think the main points are:
- Topping out ceremony was held a month or two ago now. I assume that’s what it was as there was a huge fireworks display held on the roof. It should therefore not be getting any taller than it is now unless they add a spike or something.
- Cladding is being installed. Frankly it looks pretty awful, cheap white panels and glass. I heard rumours that it was going to be much better but they needed to save money. No idea if true or false.
- They have been for a few days now testing some illumination on the outside of the facade. From my desk I have good view of the test which has lights shining up a white panel with fluctuating colours of light. I assume this is their idea to brighten the thing up and make it look better than it does. Perhaps they are trying to match the purple and green of the PKiN?
- The twisty shape is not actually as obvious from most directions as the original artwork suggested. The angle in the photo below (taken on Ul. Sosnowa) perhaps expresses it the best.
