I love it when the actual skyscraper turns out better than the rendering.
This is one of those cases. Congratulations Madrid!

Very thanks from Madrid.

Suportters of Germany are very good fans, winning or losing allways with your head held high.
I understand that you are allways champhions.

Im looking forward to seeing in South Africa Final.

beautiful pictures. At ground level, seems to be more taller.

The 4 towers makes the complex looks unique and stunning. If you add the Kio towers, Madrid landmark clearly differentiate from the rest of Europe. Congrats.

Wow, these towers are so beautiful. Much better than a lot of what you see elsewhere. Just keep an eye on them or I will steal them one night.
