Are those 4 towers located south or north of the "Puerta de Europa" ?

Cicerón Jun 27, 2008 8:46 PM

North, in the Castellana Avenue near to La Paz hospital, in front of Chamartín rail station :)

I think 3 of the 4 building are already finished. This will produce a huge traffic chaos in that part of the city :(

We will find out shortly.

They won't.
They're far from the city center and they're not that big.

They look great! Especially the Torre de Cristal.

Great to see you like them! They are really impressive on live.

If you wanna see more photos I suggest you to check my website on signature :).

I really like the one with the pointed roof. Its quite beautiful.

They look awesome! The only problem is that they stick out too much, you guys should build many smaller buildings around them to create a proper cluster, as well as create an American-downtown-style street network around them. Very impressive regardless!!

I agree the Torre de Cristal is definitely my favorite too.
I'm celebrating New Year in Madrid this year so I'm excited to see the towers in real life. Will definitely take plenty of photos and post them on here for you all!
I hope they're all lit up at night as that would look awesome. Our apartment in Madrid is pretty central as we booked it all back in October so fingers crossed if we have a balcony, we'll be able to see Puerta de Europa from our room! :D

My favorite by far is the caja Madrid tower (formerly respsol tower).

I have a great view of them from my window. I'll take some pictures soon and add them, although the weather isn't particularly appealing at the moment.

What I don't like about the towers is they made no effort to make the area pedestrian friendly. There seems to be no life at street leave except for people taking smoking breaks. I wish they had gone with a podium+tower design instead and incorporated some retail at grade. Hopefully with the convention center built behind there will be more activity along la castellana as far as foot traffic is concerned. Id love for the hospital next door to get a facelift too!

I would have loved to see the pics and follow the links but none of them seem to work :(

Torre de Cristal looks quite elegant to me! I think it would be great if someone made a thread about Costa Blanca houses and skyscrapers on the forum as has what is considered as Spain's little New York :)

For me, Torre Picasso is still the most beautiful Madrid´s skyscraper. I did this video yesterday:
