Located in Warsaw, Zlota 44 represents a new direction for high-rise residential living in Poland. Zlota 44 is a soaring 54 floor high rise that includes 251 residential units. In 2008, Zlota 44 was awarded CNBC Europe & Africa Property Awards in 4 categories: Architecture, Redevelopment, High- Rise Architecture and High-Rise Development. The project is currently under construction and scheduled for completion in 2013.

The design of Zlota 44 is inspired by Warsaw’s history and as a response to its destruction and post- war Russian reconstruction. The tower provides a form in which a new skyline can be read — moving away from the corporate architecture that has kept Warsaw a tabula rasa.

The building, both symbolically and physically, offers a new light to the city with its eastern face sculpted by the path of the sun to provide needed daylight to the surrounding buildings.
