That tower on the right looks like a cross between OCBC Centre and Chelsea Tower

There is a project started in 1993 which never starts because of many reasons, Operación Chamartín, in the north of the city, creating the new financial district of the city in the terrains of the Chamartin station, building a new one (huge, connecting to the rest of Europe)
now we can only see the beggining, these towers, but the rest... may be in 10 years...
The skyscrapers are about 200 meters, and a little cluster with 2 or 3 towers of possibly +300m




Pics from the spanish forum www.urbanity.es



























And very old renders

yes, but no many. These projects are accepted:
Torres Oncisa 90m


Torre Adequa 100m


Or CICCM 120m

How much of this masterplan has actually been realized? From the looks of it, only the (4 Torres /four towers have been completed..This looks massive though and has great massing along the corridor. However, I am not feeling the Torre Adequa project, it is very bland and almost looks like a prison complex..

These four towers are great, but I hate those black twin towers they're so ugly.

Stunning. I love how all four were under-construction at the same time. An awesome sight.
