Estas torres representan el boom economico español de los ultimos 10 años, justo han acabado con la llegada de la crisis....y el posible fin del milagro economico.

I think it's sort of another base to reinforce the building's structure, since skyscrapers are taller than ordinary buildings, they need extra support inbetween sets of floors, let's say every twenty floors. Anyway, it's just an opinion so I'm not really sure what they're there for.

If you like Torre Espacio this picture is for you, Sergio.



A very interesting thing now is to see the new gardens. In a couple of months there will be a real change down.







See the new furniture by the tower
