Description: Stadion Olimpijski
Complete redevelopment of Wroclaw’s Olympic Stadium was launched early into 2015, following tender procedures in 2014. Initial steps focused on protection of monument-listed elements of the building. In short, these include all the brickwork dating back 90 years: façades, northern and southern gates and tall tower in the east.
The west stand was demolished entirely within existing walls and replaced by a much taller one, moved closer to the speedway racing track. East stand won’t follow, but instead it’s being thoroughly renovated to resemble the shape from 1928. Existing floodlight masts, initially meant for demolition, were preserved. Now smaller, they’re equipped with new lighting system.
Construction will last at least to the end of 2016 and will consume PLN 130 million. That’s almost double the estimate of 2013, when the municipality of Wroclaw wanted to spend up to 70 million.
Poland: Wrocław’s Olympic Stadium ready for use
It’s one of the most historically relevant Polish stadiums. Now, following complete reconstruction in 2015-2017, it’s ready to host the 2017 World Games as the main venue.
