Construction of the Z這ta 44 skyscraper in the center of Warsaw was officially launched Oct. 26 with a ceremony to lay the foundation stone at the site.

The skyscraper, a flagship development by Orco Property Group, was designed by Daniel Libeskind, the internationally renowned architect of Polish origin, who took part in the ceremony.

The 54-floor, 192-meter high-rise at 44 Z這ta Street, by the Palace of Culture and Science and right next to the Z這te Tarasy shopping mall and InterContinental hotel, will house 251 apartments from 62 to 371 square meters in size. The top floors of the building will be taken up by a prestigious, three-level penthouse.

The entire eighth floor has been designated a recreation area for residents. It will include a 25-meter swimming pool, a fitness club with a gym and massage room and a play room for children.

The building is scheduled to be finished by 2010.

Libeskind has designed a series of prominent buildings that have been called icons of contemporary architecture, such as the Jewish Museum in Berlin, the Felix Nussbaum Haus museum in Osnabrck, Germany, the Imperial War Museum in Manchester, England, and the Danish Jewish Museum in Copenhagen.

Libeskind's design was chosen for the site of the former World Trade Center in New York destroyed by the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in 2001.

Libeskind was also the lead lecturer in the 鏚: Redevelopment and World Trends in Architecture conference, held Oct. 26, 2007 by The Warsaw Voice and the British-Polish Chamber of Commerce.
