Featuring one of the world’s largest glass roofs, Warsaw’s newest mixed use centre brings a historic site into the 21st century 

Designed by international firm Jerde Partnership, Zlote Tarasy is a landmark commercial mixed-use destination for Warsaw’s newest high-rise district, offering year-round leisure and social opportunities for residents and visitors to the city. The centre is designed to reconnect the project area to the city, thereby realising the site’s potential as the centre of a large urban system. In addition to renewing Warsaw's urban identity, Zlote Tarasy creates a model for further urban redevelopment within the city.

The central 30 000sq m site has remained as a desolate parking lot site since World War II. Zlote Tarasy has revitalised this focal point of the city and fills it with essential city-centre facilities, including leisure, shopping, and business. With respect to Warsaw’s environment, the project also encompasses a 6,000 sq m of urban park space into the design which was inspired by the city’s historic parks, which were saved from total destruction of the war.

The project simultaneously acknowledges the city’s rich cultural history while also projecting a distinct architectural vernacular for the future, reinterpreting the city’s historic landscape to meet the needs of a modern urban environment.
