Warsaw’s delayed luxury tower nears completion

WARSAW, Poland (AP) — The high-rise tower in Warsaw designed by American architect Daniel Libeskind is offering potential clients a peek at its luxurious apartments after years of delay caused by a legal battle.

A marketing suite opened Thursday in the Zlota 44 Tower, displaying splendid vistas of the city and apartment interiors in white marble and dark wood.

Some 200 apartments are for sale in the 54-story building, at prices from 25,000 zlotys to 65,000 zlotys per square meter ($7,800 -$20,000). The tower — named for its address in central Warsaw — plans to open next year.

Construction of the tower began in 2008 but residents of neighboring buildings sued, saying it blocked their sunlight. Warsaw authorities ended the stalemate by confirming their permission for the building.
