Construction of the new building for the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw started in April 2019. Rafał Trzaskowski, the Mayor of Warsaw, visited Museum’s construction site in July 2019.
“It’s one of the most important cultural construction projects in Poland. The city center is about to gain a new face in the upcoming years. It is our priority, not just with the Museum, but with all investments carried out by the City of Warsaw, to not only build functional buildings, but to improve the quality of our whole urban landscape.” said Mayor Trzaskowski when visiting the construction site.
“We are in line with the investment schedule. We are currently carrying out the groundworks, transferring electrical wiring as well as water and sewage lines that could collide with our construction. We have also begun the piling process that will enable construction of the foundation plate later in 2019.” said the director of the Contracts Unit in WARBUD S.A., Jarosław Nielipiński.
This important investment is the first in a series of steps taken towards rebuilding the whole area surrounding the Palace of Culture and Science. The concept for the Central Square, another investment to be carried out there, was chosen in a competition and consulted with Warsaw’s citizens.
