Description
• Architects: Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates PC, A. Epstein and Sons International Inc., Biuro Projektów Architektury J&J Sp. z o.o.
____________________________________________________________

• Warsaw Financial Center can be divided into two sections, a lower part with average height of surrounding low-rise residentials and an upper to western center's high-rises.

• The tower's core is made up of a cuboid and, two storeys higher, a curved volume.

• The lobby's interior is designed in a rivival of late Art Deco style with predominating tint of African cherry, which evokes 30ies and 40ies American skyscrapers' lobbies.

• The first story of the tower, which is in fact the eigth of the building, contains service areas for tenants.

• Its design was partly inspired by Kohn Pedersen Fox's 333 Wacker Drive.

• Contains 24 full office floors in the tower section, plus in lower part the lobby and a 6-story parking.

• When completed Warsaw Financial Center was the tallest reinforced concrete building in Poland.

• In the morning of October 13, 1998 a 16.5 meters high and 2.3 tons weigh architectural spire was installed on the north façade, topping it out.
