Are you spanish or foreigner?
About a month ago I saw news about that project in a facebook publication, but now I'm not able to find it again. It said the project is still alive, and the plot has been split in smaller plots (one per tower I guess) to make it easier to find some company to develope the project. But the final height has been reduced, I think the tallest tower is now around 135 metres.
But don't be too optimistic!, this project has been around since almost 10 years ago! and in one of the project reviews, the tallest tower reached 186 metres
http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proyect...rres_de_Repsol
Here it says 125 metres for the tallest tower, I think the 3 floor podium is not counted in that height, so the final height must be around 135 metres.

There's also another project closer to become true, maybe you'll find it by the name "citesa" or "martiricos", 2 30floor residential buildings near La Rosaleda stadium, the project includes a shorter building that maybe it's already under construction, about 1 year ago I saw news about that, that the shorter building was going to start construction by the end of 2012 I think.
Just found it: http://www.laopiniondemalaga.es/mala...13/476862.html

that render is volumetric, not final design.

These are the latest news, the short building has not started construction yet due to some administrative problems, but it says this project is the one that is closest to become true despite the crisis:
Quote:
...
Responsables de la iniciativa, la única del nuevo PGOU con visos de empezar a materializarse pese a la crisis, reconocieron a este periódico que las determinaciones del nuevo Plan Estatal de Viviendas, que previsiblemente serán calcadas por el regional, les suponen «un escollo» para poder realizar las viviendas protegidas previstas. «Si no hay ayudas para las VPO, ¿qué sentido tiene reservar el 30% de todos los proyectos residenciales que se hagan en Andalucía para estas viviendas?», se cuestionaron las fuentes que, no obstante, confiaron en poder salvar este obstáculo y empezar a construir los pisos de la parcela d Citesa de una u otra forma.
...
http://www.diariosur.es/v/20130520/m...-20130521.html

And just for your curiosity, a project that appeared in 2004 but we never knew anything else about it!:
