Description

The Złote Tarasy (Golden Terraces) is a commercial, office, and entertainment complex in the center of Warsaw, Poland, located next to the Warszawa Centralna railway station between the Jana Pawła II and Emilii Plater streets. It opened on 7 February 2007.

Building

The architectural concept of Złote Tarasy was designed by The Jerde Partnership, for which the firm received the 2006 Architectural Review MIPIM Future Project Award in the Retail and Leisure category. The total area of the building amounts to 205,000 m². It includes 200 shops and restaurants (occupying 63,500 m²), a hotel, a multiplex cinema (8 screens, 2560 seats, opened on 31 August 2007) and an underground parking garage for 1,400 cars. A transparent diagrid roof, designed and built by Austrian specialist façade contractor Waagner Biro, covers its signature central indoor courtyard designed for concerts and similar events. The building was built and is operated as a joint venture between ING Real Estate and the Warszawa Śródmieście borough and cost $500 million to build. The mall hosts Poland's first Hard Rock Cafe as well as the first Burger King in the company's second attempt to compete with McDonald's in Poland. The office complex houses the Embassy of the United Arab Emirates to Poland.
