Great, you can see the change in skyline. The renders of the completed towers are pretty cool.

There should be two Torres Mutuas and no Torre Repsol, since I think it is quite an ugly one!

Maybe when Repsol is finished, will look better than those renders. And 250 m are nice.

Each one of these towers looks simply amazing. Torre Repsol is my favorite, but they're all great. BUT, I still think they do not fit into the skyline as a whole, because they're so huge. Don't get me wrong, I think it's great for Madrid and the entire European continent to get four of these giants, but they just dwarf the rest of the skyline. Let's hope that this is only the beginning and that these towers will set a new standard for highrise projects in Madrid.

Yes there will be. Operación Chamartín (a nearby area from this amazing towers) will be aproved very soon thanks to the best mayor that have had Madrid. We all hope (and we all guess) it will be an amazing tran station an several skyscrapers. I hear that even 2 of 300 m., although maybe are also wishes

All of them are good. I think that The Repsol tower will be nicer than the renders when it will be finished.

Obviously that all towers look amazing and really nice, but everyone has it's favourite. Mine is Repsol and I have a lot of faith in Torre Sacyr-Vallehermoso

I think Torre Repsol is very underrated.
For me it's very beautiful, I like its straight lines.
If it were made by Calatrava, it would look like Turning Torso, and other Calatrava's buildings. (I like his buildings too, but in my opinion they are very similar).
Straight lines are also beautiful.

Torre Repsol and Torre Sacyr will be the great surprises of the complex.

Much activity, that's how I like it

It won't take long time before I'm going to visit Madrid. Seems to me as a beautiful Spanish city within a few years some high quality skyscrapers
