Unity Center threat overcome

Recently we reported on the threat of the future of Szkieletor’s new reincarnation, the Unity Tower. Previously, the Ornithological Society of Lesser Poland publically spoke against the project due to the birds nesting inside the building’s frame. This could have delayed the tower’s completion, as developers could not complete the project until after the birds had come out of hibernation. Reports however show that after a recent police patrol no birds were discovered on the property. The organizations accusations were unfounded, according to LoveKrakow’s sources. [LoveKrakow]
