Calatrava is really helping to make Valencia a nice and modern city. I like him and his projects

Gracias aCidMinD81! I will follow this development closely ---hopefully the world economy will stay strong and I am sure there will be alot of investor interest in this world class project.

I don't mind Valencia becomes something like Calatrava city, hehehe, there're cities in similar situations. Barcelona owes a lot to the Catalan S.GaudÝ, one of the best and most creative architects in history. Calatrava is Valencian.

And I love the Calatrava mediterranean style, so bright! However there're important architects such as Chipperfield, N.Foster, J.Nouvel, F.Gehry, who gladly have put their prints on our city, or will likely do it in the future.

Valencia want to get a place on the map. It's been very underrated.

Is this the hotel in Dubai with the tennis court so high like a wing on the building?

I like the project of the hotel in Valencia too. It simulates very well the sails of a boat. The monorail would be perfect!

Yes. It┤s not actually a tennis court but an helicopter pad.
that hotel in alencia looks very promising, I hope it will be built.

We don't know the hight of that tower yet. Personally I think it won't have more than 150 meters.
