The Repsol Tower reminds me at the OCBC Centre in Singapore.

Excelentes estos proyectos para Madrid!!!, ya le están haciendo honor a su calidad de ciudad capital, se estaba quedando atrás en materia de rascacielos, considerando que Barcelona y Benidorm ya le habían sacado ventaja...

Pero hoy la realidad es distinta, y en conjunto con el nuevo look para ese sector céntrico de la ciudad, se entiende que llamaron a los mejores arquitectos para desarrollar estas torres maravillosas. Todo lleno de significado, de simbología, es el nuevo Madrid...

Outstanding projects for Madrid!!, to making honour to its quality of capital city, because it was stucked out in the matter of skyscrapers, considering that Barcelona and Benidorm took some advantage...

But today the reality is different, and also with new look for that centric sector of the city, it's understood that the planners called to the best architects to develop these wonderful towers. All plenty of meaning, of simbology, is the new Madrid...

Are you sure they're going to be finished by 2007 the way Spanish builders work? No offence, but aren't they renowned for their laid-back slow paced construction. I thought they took a nap if they felt a bit too hot and tired. Correct me if this assumption is wrong?

You should apologize for this inappropriate, unaccurate and offensive comment.

This is not some sleepy little Costa de Sol town we are talking about, but an important project in one of the largest cities on the European continent. The same city that in a span of less than a decade built over 100 km of metro.

Yes, your assumption is wrong.

Yes, of course your assumption is wrong. The release of the four towers is still 2007 according to the owners' plans.

Your assumption is wrong.

BTW, Isn't Bradford renowed by its racist riots? I hope the living conditions there get better.

Tell us how could we connect your post with your avatar:
