Overview

Located along the western section of ul. Chmielna in the heart of Warsaw's business district, Varso Place is a 3-building development.

Epstein served as the architect of record for this project, which features a terraced design in which two lower buildings (19 and 21 stories, respectively), designed by Hermanowicz Rewski Architects, culminate in a 53-story tower designed by Foster + Partners. This makes the Varso the tallest building in Central Europe.

Varso's larger tower features a prominent spire as well as a publicly-accessible observation deck and restaurants on the 46th and 47th floors. The two lower office buildings feature green roof terraces and include ample public space, retail shops, restaurants and cafes. There are also 4 levels of underground parking in the development and, to service a bike path that runs nearby, the Varso also provides storage space for 750 bicycles.

The Varso development includes building systems that help reduce energy consumption and water emissions.
