The bad point is.. almost all of the buildings in AZCA area are from late 70's and 80's, so they are boxy. Another shape would fit well? For example that Emirates one, or a rounded one. I wonder!

And about CTBA, is sooo nice to see from Nuevos Ministerios..! I just want them to be completely built and see how are illuminated at night.

I really like each of the towers on their own...but honestly they look a bit silly all the same height and just standing there side by side.
Are there anymore proposed towers to be built around them?

Are you serious ? Hopefully Madrid won't ever become a city like Sydney . By that i mean scrapers all on top of each other . Madrid has the beautiful historic center with the modern part of the city a few kilometres from the city center . If you've ever been in Madrid you would apreciate the elegant Paseo de la Castellana . Think Melbournes St. Kilda r.d only much wider , longer and a hell of alot more impressive .
That avenue is full of magnificent spread out scrapers that really stand out in their individual beauty . Apart from some god damn horrible suburbs that exist in Madrid on the outer outskirts the city center is a magnificently planned monumental place .
Madrids CBD certainly doesn't want to become another terribly planned city like Sydney or London . Come to think of it of those three cities on your avatar only Melbourne can pressume of being a well planned city .

I love the composition of the 4 towers side by side, its so uncommon, yet very poetic.
