Cuatrecasas Tower Rising in Barcelona's Growing [email protected] Business District

Quote:
The development consists of two structures rising 10 and 17 storeys above ground level, and designed by local firm GCA Arquitectos Asociados. At 44 and 72 metres respectively, both buildings will harmonize with the existing buildings lining the avenue. Unique design features such as the cantilevered upper section of the tallest tower will provide the development with a distinct look. A 2,000-square-metre glass atrium will connect both structures, in which over 600 staff members will be housed.

The photos in that article are already a little out of date, the glass facades have been completed for a few weeks already.

Here's a bad picture I took when I drove by the other night.

It is not a construction project, but an interesting urban management project

Quote:
IoT beneath the city streets: Barcelona tests out open platform for smart services

To manage the city's infrastructure centrally, Barcelona's council and supercomputing center, with Cisco and other technology partners, have just completed an innovative proof-of-concept platform.

Wander round the streets of Barcelona and you'll probably spot various grey, unsightly cabinets housing a range of technologies that could be controlling anything from traffic and lighting to parking and waste.

The city is increasingly covered in sensors, supposedly to become smarter and serve its citizens more efficiently. Yet, all these devices are disconnected from each other, and so is the data they generate.

To solve the problem of consolidating and centrally managing all infrastructure, data, and services, Barcelona has developed and tested what is designed to be an "open, flexible, scalable and secure" platform accessed through a simple browser-based remote dashboard.

Housing on Diagonal, around 120 I think.

Not a huge amount happening here at the moment which sucks, but I can provide a few photos

Diagonal/Bilbao

Some updates can be seen here, the facade is pretty much covering most the building now, ugly but tall. I think all apartments are sold, so it might pave the way for more high-rise residential buildings.

Hotel [email protected]

Now under construction, although I'm not sure of the how it will actually look yet.

Renders





Construction











[email protected] Business Park

Now also seems to be under construction, nothing to show but cranes are digging!

Renders





Construction





Cuitat de Granada/Bolivia/Tanger

It's nice, but 6 towers at 72m in this area... would have been nicer with a little height variation.

Renders

I will try to briefly summarize the few things that happened during these last months. We're quite active in our local forums, so I apology in advance since we don't post often in this thread. Current progress in the main developments going up in the city.

Plaça Gardunya





RENDERS







Plaça Glòries redevelopment (NEW PARK)

Original project


Revised project (Not official yet): Contains height reduction, project modifications and more public buildings, therefore public investment.







Construction of the tunnels crossing the square is being done at the moment, City Council will start building the park next year (probably just a first stage)



Hermitage Museum

Plot preparation is being carried on along the construction of the new Marina, right next to Hotel W (formerly known as Hotel Vela)









Hotel SB Glòries









LUXA







Cuatrecasas new HQ



Parc Glòries





Pere IV developments

Finished new residential (black one), quite a controversial one





Vía Célere Diagonal Port



Torre Diagonal 0

We're still waiting for the official project so the structure skeleton gets finished.





None of these pictures are mine, credits go to their original authors

Sagrada Família

I recommend you to keep track of the progress in both official threads:

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...19763&page=128

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...90582&page=248

Latest news is the start of the tower of the virgin mary.





Barcelona Zoo

The City Council has decided to cancel the expansion of the dolphins area (10 milion € investment), and also "tranfer" the remaining dolphins to other zoos, to assure their retirement in better conditions.

Casa Pons i Pascual

This centric building will endure a 40 month long restoration process, demolishing all the interior and adding 5 basement floors. This 30 milion € investment will update the 9.300 square metres of offices of the building.

Jardins de la Rambla de Sants ( High-Line): Finished

This elevated garden was finished some months ago, finally giving use to the corridor built some years ago in order to reduce the issues made by the train traffic across the neighbourhood of Sants.

High line: Barcelona's elevated public space brings a bucolic bent to the cityscape

Quote:
In the late 1980s, Barcelona’s City Hall decided to tear down defunct industrial buildings in the large working class district of Sants and create public parks. This has resulted in some of city’s more unusual landscapes, such as the Parc d’l Espanya Industrial with its postmodernist lighthouses and lake, and the Parc de l’Excorxador – once the site of an abattoir, now filled with palm trees and a surreal sculpture by Joan Miró. Now, a new High Line-type project completes the set.

Named the Jardins de la Rambla de Sants, the scheme effectively encloses a corridor of six railway lines, deemed too costly to move underground, and provides a plant-filled urban space in a congested area next to the city’s main train station. The 800m long promenade takes shape with prefabricated concrete boxes in the form of Warren beams, which recall classic railway bridges. The triangles of the boxes are filled with glass, which cuts down on noise, while still affording views of the passing trains from ground level.
