I don't see many commies in the last picture. The tall nuclear-white building behind the leftmost tower cranes is a hospital. And so it is the tall building on the right, next to Torre Espacio.

By the way, why ain't posted here the latest pix taken by Newton and Kepler?

Torre Espacio is making really good progress, I love how the structure is developing.

Interesting to follow the progress.

Is it really close to an arena?

When the towers were under project, there was an Arena planned in the same terrain, right by the towers. For the 2012 Madrid olympic bid, the Arena project was switch to the olympic stadium area. Now there´s a congress hall planned by the towers which is in the architectural design contest phase.
