The 310-meter-tall Varso Tower, designed by British architectural studio Foster + Partners, is now the European Union’s tallest building.
The skyscraper, which houses offices, restaurants, retail facilities and a sky garden, has overtaken 259-meter-tall Commerzbank Tower built in Frankfurt in 1997.
The building is located in the center of the Polish capital, next to the railway station, and its 53 floors provide 70,000 square meters of office space for local, international, and start-up companies. On the ground floor is a mall, and the lobby is decorated with a ten-meter-high ceramic artwork by local artist Krystyna Kaszuba-Wacławek.
Public facilities continue through to the upper levels of the tower, with a bar and restaurant occupying the 46th, 47th and 48th floors. Above this is the city’s highest garden and and on the 53rd floor, there is a rooftop.
