Yes, it is the name of the company. Repsol is also the developer, but they are going to sell the tower, if they haven't sold it yet!

Repsol-YPF it's an oil company from Spain. They have a lot of control in Latin America's oil, and it's very important in the whole world.. And yes, it's the company of Honda's MotoGP.

They need some skyscraper neighbours! Any proposed nearby? They could really use some standard box skyscrapers close by so these 4 really stand out, and don't look as if they have been simply plonked in place.

ZZ-II. The blue colour is only the plastic film.

It´s really steel and will be silver-coloured.

No... the blue is just protective plastic film... It will be removed on time and we'll see the real silver-coloured steel.
It's been said before...

Thanks for your answer, I couldn´t read before, in orther hand I think this Tower is not very impresive,you can find tower nicer that R.T., but it´s vey original and more more growing up,it appears something interesting, we will see what happens when the arc is going to to be placed progressively
