Are there any plans to build more skyscrapers around these 4 in the foreseeable future? They look great, but they are so isolated at the same time!

Yes, there is a plan to build lots of highscrapers in some years, but now it´s stopped for lack of money.

Apart from that, in the middle of the four towers there will be a building for company meetings of 100 meters high.

Thank you, Amalgadu.

The four towers can be seen from 50-60 kms. from El Escorial .

Look at the first picture at the left.

La Torre de cristal es espectacular,la mejor de las cuatro. Pelli no se cansa de hacer maravillas en todo el mundo. El obelisco ese que pusieron no me convence...
