The central part of Złote Tarasy - an atrium with an open courtyard - is covered with an irregularly wavy glass roof with an area of about 10,000 m². The roof consists of 4780 glass triangles with sides up to 3 m.
Under the dome a cascade ventilation system for the building is installed, where the air is supplied to commercial premises from air-conditioning units, from where it is heated to the dome and then goes to the underground to again be thrown over the tower block.
In addition to air conditioning, a cooling / heating system is provided on each of the three floors of the commercial part.
The investor of Złote Tarasy is ING Real Estate along with the City of Warsaw. The general contractor of the project is Skanska S.A.
The opening of the complex was initially planned for autumn 2005, however, it was moved several times. In 2004, the pseudoecological Friendly City organization famous for extorting racketeers from powerful developers in exchange for resignation from the protest, suspended the project for half a year.
