Anyway, due to the location of the tower, it won't disturb at all that view you say. I mean, it won't appear in any of the most typical "pictures" over the city centre, since the view to Cartuja Island, where the tower will be built, isn't particularly a pretty attractive one.

But I must admit that some controversy about that issue is allowed, mainly cause actually it's really close to the centre, only the river is in between.

In my opinion, the first proposed mixed with historical buildings will make Seville even more charming.

#1 and 3 are my favorite. The second looks a little too tacky, and the last one looks like the Norman Foster proposal for the new WTC, except this building seems like it has been impaled by that huge spire.

Los finalistas son: Pelli, Arquitectónica y Zaera. Esperemos que eligan a Arquitectónica, es la más espectacular, por cierto el proyecto ganador se sabra a finales de esta semana.

Arquitectónica is by far the best project but I don't think it will win as it is taller than what was permitted the city council i.e. 210 m, right? Isozaki’s project was also amazing but discarded due to its high costs.

Still one or two more days to know the winner or maybe even today!

Arquitectonica studio's project is just wonderful.

Valode & Pistre's project just sucks as usual.

Pelli's project sucks too, as well as Zaera Polo's one...

V&P tend to make realistic propositions budget-wise for each locations...

But of course, I'd choose Arquitectonica studio's project, very elegant...

The final decision will be public the next Friday 22 (or before), at the moment, the favourite project is the tower of Zaera, the cheaper tower of 174 million Euro.

The second cheaper is Pelli - 185 million Euro.
And the most expensive: Arquitectonica (of course), the better - 205 million Euro.

In the city, all people preffer Arquitectonica design, but I think that Zaera will win the contest, specially because is the cheaper.

Greetings!

Do not exist, only I can say you that the building would be destined to mixed uses, offices and shops.

Arquitectónica design - 216 m
FOA-Zaera design - 187 m
César Pelli design - 178 m

We will known the winner around the end of the next week.

Arquitectónica all the way!! I hate that zaera polo tile covered piece of crap he says it´s inspired in a flamenco dress ...WTF????? and Pelli´s looks too ordinary and plain to become the so wanted (at least by the mayor) "landmark" for the city
