Well, as great as always. Thanks for updates, madrileños (hopefully I haven't misspelt it too badly))

I love this pic with those mammatus clouds over it:


MAD_CITY, do you have by chance any other pic of the towers and those "mamma" clouds?

Almost all the towers are topped out
They're not topped out yet, but not to far. It will be a great milestone in Spanish skyscraper history

I want to see them completed

The towers are individually excellent designs but they don't come together to form a great skyline because they are all roughly the same height and stand in a row. Are there any plans to add more towers nearby to create a proper cluster here? Maybe with different heights??

Yeah, it's called 'Operacion Chamartin'.

It's a project to build around 15 skyscrapers in that area after burying the railways near Chamartin station.

They have had problems to approve it for several economical and political problems. There will be municipal elections in Spain on Sunday, so the project should clarify in the next months.

What's the problem of stand in a row? Look at Dubai's SZR (obviously, Dubai is bigger), but the effect will be the same. All towers could be visible like columns to the sky. I like this effect. But, if you don't like it, don't worry. As Stifler explains, in a future (all spanish forumers hope a nearby future) Chamartin Operation will end this "problem"
