The Warsaw Spire is a complex of postmodern office buildings under construction in Warsaw, Poland, by the Belgian real estate developer Ghelamco. It will consist of a 220-metre main tower with a hyperboloid glass facade, Warsaw Spire A, and two 55-metre auxiliary buildings, Warsaw Spire B and C.[1]

In December 2014, a large neon sign with the words "Kocham Warszawę" ("I love Warsaw") was placed on the upper floors of the partially constructed main tower.[2] The building was topped out in April 2015.[3]

The main tower will be the second tallest building in Warsaw and Poland upon its completion in 2016.
