Yesterday evening, in snowy weather, the Varso Tower was topped out. This is the official announcement of the building as the tallest in the European Union.
It is 310 meters high and is officially the tallest building in the European Union. Yesterday evening, the usual topping out ceremony took place, i.e. the official announcement of the completion of high-altitude works on Varso Tower. Thus, the Warsaw skyscraper surpassed the tallest buildings in Frankfurt am Main, Milan and Paris. It is worth noting that it is not the highest in Europe. It is surpassed by three skyscrapers standing in the European part of Russia.
A famous designer and a new view of Warsaw
The building, designed by the renowned Foster + Partners studio, will serve not only as office space, but also as a viewing point for city residents and tourists. Two points, actually, because that’s how many terraces are planned for the new tower. The first of them will be at an altitude of 205 meters and the second one at 230 meters, i.e. twice as high as the viewing point at the Palace of Culture and Science. The designers also took care of the possibility of having a romantic dinner with an unprecedented view. A restaurant will be opened on floors 46 to 48.
“After construction is completed in 2022, visitors to Varso Tower will be encouraged by the green lobby with handmade mosaics on the walls. From there, two glass elevators will take passengers at a speed of 8 m/s to the top of the skyscraper, where they will be able to admire the panorama of the city. – we read in the announcement by HB Reavis.
