BARCELONA | Barcelona Island | 300m | Pro

Dont seem to be too much information as of now but i didn't see I a thread and thought I would create one

From website : " Barcelona Island will be an out of this world experience for all guests of ‘Mobilona Space Hotel’ who wish they could travel to distant galaxies. The man-made island in Barcelona will be built by a multinational consortium under the leadership of Mobilona's Global CEO Jerome Bottari and represents an initial investment projected at €1.5 billion. Mobilona is committed to improving the climate by operating Barcelona Island with zero carbon emissions and by producing green energy for the people of Barcelona "

"Mobilona Space Hotel on Barcelona Island will be the only hotel in all of Europe to be built on a man-made island, conntected through a Glideway and Overseas Walkway with the coast of Barcelona. It will provide guests and residents with sea views in all directions with Barcelona's skyline on one side and the open sea on the other. Mobilona Space Hotel in Barcelona will also be Europe's largest hotel with over 2,000 suites and residences that will not only fulfill the existing demand for luxury accommodation but its projected 100,000 annual hotel guests will make Barcelona Island a new and independent destination for ‘Space Travelers’ from around the world. The 300-Meter (984 foot) Galaxy Tower will make Mobilona Space Hotel the tallest hotel building in Europe."

It would be best if the tower on the right side of the render in the first post was alone and 300m tall. I like that one, its unique. Otherwise the rest is kinda crap.

Anyway, here are more renders/models/whatever from the official website.

Even worse than that 80s pants in Benidorm.
One + I'm sure it will attract a lot of people.
