But looks like Madrid big entreprises do not love skyscrappers: Repsol - that was supposed to move to one of these towers will built a horizontal-model site. Also BBVA will abandon its current skyscrapper-headquarters for a similar place. Santander already did the same...

Looks like CTBA will become a place for mid-small size enterprises that fit in 1 or 2 storeys. Bigger ones seem feeling 'unconfortable' there.

i find it a pity that the towers are set up in a row and all have more or less the same height without other highrises surrounding them...hopefully in the future they´ll add some more skyscrapers in this area then it´ll be much better!

Maby like this;

If Op. Chamartin goes on, it's expected at least a 300m+

I was passing through Barajas Airport yesterday and didn't realise you could see the towers so clearly from there, i must say they are very imposing. Had my eye on them taking off too and saw picasso rising from the horizon, it looks so small in comparison!

Amazing projects for Madri.

I loved this city, and now

In fact when the airplane lands, you only see the towers beyond the terminal building. But im afraid Operacion Chamartin wont see the light in the next years, maybe never!

Operación Chamartín will see the light soon, in one way or another, but will, you'll see. All the intentions are positive regarding OPCH.

I like these towers but the one designed by Pelli is the best. It´s a great asset to the skyline. Congratz!

¿en qué ciudad europea puede uno darse un baño así bajo unos rascacielos? Juraría que en muy pocas.









Do you want to have a swim under the towers? I had it, it´s a wonderful sensation.
