For who does not know the project... This one is a redevelopment of the old sport city of Real Madrid to construct 4 skyscrapers, a park and possibly a palace of congresses. The skyscrapers to construct are Torre Espacio (I.M.Pei) 215m, Torre Mutua (Cesar Pelli) 250m, Torre Vallehermoso (Rubio&Alvarez) 220m and Torre Repsol (Norman Foster) 250m. The works will be finalized throughout year 2007.

This project will allow the city to have one of the most amazing skylines in europe,and it will mean a great oportunity for the city-development.It was time about they built new skyscrapers in Madrid; the current tallest skyscraper in Madrid is Torre Picasso and it was completed in 1985,and its height is "only" 157 m,so u can imagine how important this project is for the city and for the Spanish forumers...
Keep up with it in the Spanish Forum

This is an impressive project!
This city will receive 4 towers at once;I just don't like Torre Repsol,apart from that all of them are wonderful.

@Odoguy: The second simulation is a little incorrect, when I did it I put the towers something disproportioned. This but is fit to which will be in fact.

No, Real Madrid has sold where they have their sport complex in an operation with the local and regional autorithies. The skyscrapers are owned by private companies and they will be for offices and for a big hotel in the "torre vallehermoso",

Real Madrid is now building a new and bigger sport complex near Barajas airport.

They are talking about the basketball team of Real Madrid.

Darconte, how many seats will have the new arena ? and this next season Real will play in the palacio Vistalegre along with the Estudiantes, right ?

There are a lot of problems with the operation chamartin, I think we won't see nothing in a lot of years of this, even it can be cancelled But we still have the niew suburbs in the southeast of the city that can bring us some tall suprises We must wait to see.

Yes, they will play in Vistalegre, at least until the works in the "palacio de los deportes" arena ends in december. Then probably next season they will play there. The project of the new arena in the new sport complex is not very advanced and we don't know nothing abour it

A picture of the new palacio de los deportes:
