A gate, which is going to be a link between the tradition and the modernity, is going to be constructed among Nowogrodzka, Wspolna and Emilii Plater Streets.
Porta Varsovia is a complex of two high-rise office buildings of a surface of 133 620 sq. m. The creators of the design are Mirek i Ostrowski – an art company as well as Zespol Projektowo-Inwestycyjny Kontrapunkt. The building is planned to make an impression as if it was touching the sky. The effect in question is going to be achieved by means of a special architectonic structure and colours of the building.
The location is not a random one. At one side of Porta Varsovia is the church of sw. Piotra Pawla, which bears traces of insurgents’ bullets. The facade of the high-rise buildings is going to have holes resembling bullet holes. On the other side of the building is going to be built Lilium Tower, the construction of which is going to refer to a lily.
The design of the gate ties with reorganisation of the imminent area. There are plans of rebuilding of Emilii Plater Street. There has also been planned creation of green areas to emphasise contrast of the silence present around the gate and the noise in the city centre.
