The Warsaw Spire is a complex of Neomodern office buildings in Warsaw, Poland constructed by the Belgian real estate developer Ghelamco. It consists 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] The main tower is the second tallest building in Warsaw and the third highest in Poland.

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 neon sign was removed in early July 2015 due to progress in façade assembly.[4] A more advanced version of the sign returned permanently to the top of the tower in May 2016, for the opening of the building.[5]
