very beatiful buildings! It´s nice to see that Madrid is getting some new scrapers, the skyline is going to look awesome! Europe is truly going threw a skyscraper-age; Madrid, Paris, Warsaw and London (although it seems to take a loooooong time for those brits to get their scrapers up...)

After you finish growing the other half of your only brain cell, I would do a little research before making such stupid comments.

These towers are being built by PRIVATE corporations, multinational Repsol, which is also building corporate headquarters in Buenos Aires, Mutua Madrilena, a financial group based in Madrid, as well as for a multinational construction company.

Why would the EU pay for skyscrapers that are being used by private companies?

Four 250m towers under construction at the same time! No city has ever achieved it in Europe before.
(As a comparison, only two 180m towers are currently under construction in Paris)

Spain has been “rebuilding” itself after a long dictatorship way before they received one single cent from the other members of the EU. The country has the fastest growing economy (3.4%) of Western Europe pushed mainly by the internal demand/consumption and has become one of the major investors in Latin America surpassing in this respect the USA in several countries…

These skyscrapers just reflect the prosperity of these PRIVATE companies whereas your comments just reflect the poorness of your brain and the obvious lack of culture.

And even if it was so, i'd say good for them. I'm all for helping neighbors, we are, after all, by very definition of the word, a community.

Good to see the towers rising, torre de crystal is my new favorite in europe, flawless!

Yes, for already many years a great urban development operation is blocked, situated near 100 meters of these towers, which there includes the construction of 15 skyscrapers. This operation was unblocked in March but it returned to block with the change of government in Spain (most of the implied areas concerns to the national government). It hopes that this autumn or winter could be unblocked and be able to begin to award the lots for the construction of the towers.

Sorry for my bad english.

@Sercan: Yes, but it's only a rumour. The official size is 250, for this moment.

I really don't tnink so! It's stupid to think this, who is a bankroller? Spain doesn't steal banks!
You should be very glad that Spain is a member of the European Union. You were able -and you are it still- to get fruit and vegetables at reasonable prices, Companies will be able to invest in Spain and also get money over there in Spain, which is good for your country.
You people are the ones who visit our country at the Costas and you make profit of "our" sun and beaches (Thomas Cook, TUI, etc...) And many tourist make a mess in Salou and Lloret.

Do you really think that Madrid needs money of the EU? The city is richer than many other regions in the EU.

It is true that Spain received money and with that money we built infrastructure and we helped our pour farmers. We are thankfull for that.
But in a Metropol like Madrid, we are the ones who pay it (private enterprises, citizens of MAdrid), or do you think we move through the city by horse and that we don't have electrcity?

We have the best underground system of Europe! Everyone who comes to Madrid can't deny that.

So please be informed!
