A short tale of the life of a Warsaw Kamienica

Kamienica erected in 1899 in the Wola district:

Image

A partial look at her façade prior to the war on the right:

Image

Girl survived the war only to be stripped of her beauty and grandeur by commie scum in the 50’s, as was their MO against anything deemed bourgeois and conflicting with their demented ideology. The final blow coming in the 60’s with the removal of the balconies and entrance gate.

Image

Building has sat abandoned and slowly decaying since the eviction of tenants in 2003 due to health and safety concerns, subsequently being purchased by investors in February of 2015

Image

A fire broke out this month and with speculation of foul play, the new owners have provided an initial and very early render to diffuse any accusations and show their commitment to breathing new life into a once beautiful girl that has survived the Nazis, Commies and the aforementioned fire.

News has recently emerged of another Kamienica that was reduced to styrofoam purgatory being brought back to a once magnificent existence :naughty:

JDE, thanks for the pictures and updates on all the renovations around Warszawa. Keep it up. I really like it.
Similar sort of thing happening in Piotrkow Trybunalski. They have a youtube news channel that uploads vid every 2 or 3 days. They show the constant rebuilding of kamienicy, roads, apartment blocks and much more. It makes me very happy seeing my home town constantly becoming more beautiful.
