Its probably just the rendering but I think they needa tweak the glass on Torre Espacio. You cant really see the curve! But I guess the real thing would look different. Nice tower!

brilliant, but maybe European cities should stay away from the skyscraper bandwagon.
Paris has gone mad, and London is going wild. Aint too many scrapers ruining these historical great cities?

Great projects. Really slender modern towers. Keep the pics coming please!

@harkerb

Those historical cities don't tear down their old stuff and replace it with scrapers, that would be a waste. The scrapers are build to show that European cities aren't just historical cities; they are also very modern. I think modern and old combine very nicely. Paris is an excellent example. It just adds to the city.

I don't see any problem as long as they don't start start demolishing key parts of the historic downtowns to build the new skyscrapers. Just look at La Defense in Paris, it sure fits Paris without affecting the old historic core.

In this case, this towers are 5 or 6 kilometers from the historic center. No problem.
