Zlota Tower Moves Forward in Warsaw – Daniel Libeskind – Poland
20 Jan 2012
As the Zlota tower reaches its top floor, the Voivod Administrative Court (“WSA”) in Warsaw has reaffirmed validity of the Building Permit of Z?ota 44 and closed all outstanding proceedings related to the case. The construction of the skyscraper is no longer exposed to any legal risk regarding its Building Permit.
The verdict issued on the 12th of January 2012 relates to the claims of some of the Z?ota 44 project’s neighbours. Through successive court appeals since 2008, they have been challenging the legality of the building permit issued for the luxury residential building designed by Daniel Libeskind. While it remains possible for the neighbours to – again – file a cassation appeal to Supreme Administrative Court, we are absolutely convinced that any further complaint would be dismissed.”– stated Mariusz Le?niewski, Head of Orco’s Legal Department in Poland.
“Together with the full financing confirmation and the topping up of the 54th floor this month, this is another excellent piece of news for our existing and future clients, securing their investment in the most iconic residential development in the region!”— confirmed Krzysztof Godle?, Head of Development for Poland, Orco.
