Just up the street from Plac Unii is Zebra Tower, completed December 2010 and one of my favourite recent developments in Warsaw. It has a classy look and it’s a pity it is not in the city centre where I can see it more often.
It has 16 floors, 16 000 m2 of office space and is 60m high, the same height as the more boring IBC building in the other side of the street (to the left in photo). Together they form a kind of symbolic gated entrance to the city.
Designed by Piotr Bujnowskiego in Poland and Martin Troethan of Austrian firm Ernst Hoffmann Architekt. Originally developed by S+B Group, also Austrian, and sold to Union Investment in 2011 for 75 million Euro.
To find it, go to metro stop Politechnika, get out, there it is.
