Situated at a prominent point with the city centre, Lilium Tower rises as a light, transparent and constantly surprising 260m structure amongst a cluster of distinctive tall buildings – achieving distinction both through its unique silhouette, and the application of a progressive low-energy strategy to meet extremes in local climate. Lilium Tower rises in a central Warsaw location, adjacent to the Marriott Tower and opposite the central train station.

Lilium Tower

Light and transparent, this 260 metre structure, containing luxury residential apartment and hotel, projects a clear sense of identity and character – offering a slender contrast to the nearby Palace of Culture, creating its own distinctive profile within an emerging cluster of tall buildings.


The scheme is notable for its progressive energy strategy – incorporating low energy solutions to cope with extremes in the local climate. Structurally, a central core forms the backbone of the tower – a highly economical solution which provides uninterrupted views across Warsaw in all directions.


In essence, Lilium Tower comprises a progressive and prestigious residential building at the heart of 21st century Warsaw- avoiding sterile repetition to achieve a dynamic, every changing presence.


The Tower program comprises apartment hotel, residential apartments, spa, underground retail area, restaurant and parking – with four separate lobbies at ground level.
