Warsaw Trade TowerEdit profile
The Warsaw Trade Tower (WTT) is one of the two (along with the Palace of Culture and Science) buildings in Warsaw and in Poland with a height greater than 200 meters. Construction took place from 1997 to 1999 by the Korean company Daewoo, which in 2002 sold the property to the American firm Apollo-Rida. At 208 meters in height (the main roof goes up to a height of 184 metres (604 feet)), the 43-storey skyscraper includes a two story shopping center, offices, and three floors of underground parking for 300 cars. The building has one of Europe's fastest elevators travelling at a speed of 7 metres per second. The foundation of the Warsaw Trade Tower is 11 meters deep and is based on 156 piles. If you were to disregard the antenna mast of the Palace of Culture and Science and its own one, the Warsaw Trade Tower could be considered the tallest building in Poland by 3 meters. The Warsaw Trade Tower has a metal spire completed mast antenna relay attached to the building on steel rims. The spire starts at a height of 32 floors and rises above the roof to a height of 24 meters. The Warsaw Trade Tower is currently the 2nd tallest building in Poland.
