It's very impressive all this crane : the city is booming but the towers are ugly and not very original.

Outside of Tokyo, this city has the worst display of architecture I have ever layed eyes on.

In fact, it's worse than Tokyo.

This city is getting tackier every day. Why not building some more quality?

New project for Villajoyosa, in the metro area of Benidorm (you can see Benidorm at the background of the render, a 50 floor hotel tower:

El Ayuntamiento se opone a la operación si la empresa desmantela por completo el negocio por su traslado a Alicante




Casinos del Mediterráneo, la empresa propietaria de la sala de juegos de La Vila Joiosa, proyecta construir un rascacielos en el solar que ocupa actualmente la instalación y que viene siendo polo de atracción turística durante los últimos 30 años.
El casino, que ya ha anunciado el traslado de su actividad principal a Alicante y trabaja ya en las obras de la futura instalación en la capital, pretende mantener el local de La Vila como delegación de la sede central, pero persigue para el futuro un uso bien distinto de su enclave.
El Grupo Acrismatic, la sociedad propietaria, tiene intención de construir un hotel de unas 50 alturas en el solar de 20.000 metros cuadrados donde opera el casino.
El proyecto no ha sido presentado oficialmente al Gobierno de La Vila Joiosa, pero sí se conoce de manera extraoficiosa. Meses atrás, accionistas del casino hicieron llegar al alcalde, Gaspar Lloret, copia de los bocetos elaborados por el despacho "Adolfo Rodríguez Arquitectos". En el dossier sólo aparecen simulaciones como la que ilustra esta información, pero ningún dato técnico que avale el proyecto.
"Nosotros queremos luchar por que el casino se mantenga como hasta ahora. El Ayuntamiento estaría dispuesto a permitir mañana mismo un hotel de cinco estrellas si el casino se queda, pero no en otras condiciones", declaró Lloret.
La calificación urbanística del terreno donde está el casino es suelo dotacional recreativo, por lo que cualquier cambio de uso requeriría del consenso municipal.
El Casino Mediterráneo, tercero de España en facturación tras los de Madrid y Barcelona, da trabajo directo a más de 160 personas y constituye una importante fuente de ingresos para el Consistorio vilero, además de ser la joya de la corona del Grupo Acrismatic, que dispone de otra sala en Torrevieja.
Las ventas en 2006 de Casinos del Mediterráneo, la empresa matriz, alcanzaron 34,1 millones de euros, con unos beneficios de 3,5 millones. Unas 300 personas de media acuden a diario por la sala, cifra que aumenta en los meses de temporada alta.

Nice too see they do all they can do to keep water consumption down with Spain getting drier and drier.

Benidorm, sometimes referred to as the Manhattan of Spain due to its unusual skyline made up of towering hotels and apartments not seen elsewhere on the Costa Blanca, could soon have another skyscraper added to its collection if proposals get the go ahead.

Although it will be dwarfed by Puig Campana, the rather spectacular mountain which looms over Benidorm and stands at a leg tiring 1406 metres, the new tower if built will stand at a respectable 260 metres if built.

The design by Spanish architectural firm Adolfo Rodriguez Architects and is of the twisting variety of towers that seem to have sprung up on skylines the world over.

Standing on its own the tower will stand almost sentinel like amidst greenery a little inland from the coast and has a very elegant look to it. The facades form from the podium and wrap around the tower rising upwards almost looking like a high necked cloak giving the tower a regal look, at the peak of the tower the façade extends up on one side to create a spire.

As its crown the tower will have an expansive sky garden for visitors to enjoy the sun on. Although the tower will have glazed facades the emphasis is clearly on the skeleton of the building and the patterns made as beams cross with each other almost like an upsided Calatrava bridge.

The tower will be a brilliant white in keeping with the architects vision of it being almost like a lighthouse and it is hoped it will become something of an icon for Benidorm's skyline.

Of course the real reason behind its beacon like appearance could be to lure hapless gamblers from the beaches like moths to a flame as the tower will house a huge casino and hotel.

Inside it will no doubt have all the tricks of casinos across the world such as bright lighting to give the appearance of daytime, climate control to ensure comfort while throwing the car keys into the pot on the poker table, a distinct absence of clocks and probably the best bit pretty waitresses who always seem to pop up with a drink at just the right time.

With casinos usually comes the odd high roller who will expect nothing but the best which is probably what the hotel will offer with a range of amenities such as pools, spas, gymnasiums and helpful people around to grant every whim making losing money that little bit less painful.

Developers will probably be crossing fingers and praying for aces on approval for what will probably be a very lucrative scheme.

what a jungle of a place, not my preffered holiday destination, although it would be interesting to go,

what with that huge moterway that suddenly ends? is that really going to be built?
