The dream of modernizing the Krakow skyline, abandoned by the communist regime thirty years ago, has finally attracted a group of investors. They plan to spend 100 million euro to convert this tower into an office block with a top-floor restaurant. Taller than it presently stands, it will form the centrepiece of a plaza with offices, a hotel, shops and parking space.
